INSIDER Trade Tips : Polishing Platinum

The properties of Platinum can make it a very difficult metal to polish, trade polisher Stephen M Goldsmith shares this quick tip with you.

Insider Tip...

  • Before polishing platinum, prepare it thoroughly by using Wet and Dry paper.

  • Start with grade 2000 and go up as far as you can - without this preparation you will just be polishing your scratches and making them shiny.

  • Once this is done use a cutting compound to polish with such as NIKKO compound, I recommend 1500 at the moment.

  • Finish off by using PT Platinum Polish (Blue compound).
