Abrasiveness chart

Don't know if it's been posted here before (couldn't find anything with a search), so i thought I'd post a link to an Abrasiveness chart for compounds/polishes/glazes and pads that I found tonight.

Useful guide but can you tell me what the difference is between the (heavy,medium and light) abrasive compounds and a polish?
In terms of car products I used to think a polish was an abrasive.

Hi Andrew, have a look at the following guide to polishing that appears on my site - it's a bit of a read, but all is explained.

Best to do a screen print and save it as a picture, then resize it to print how you want.

Great chart by the way, good find.
