Default Abrasive technology in the professional line

Hi. admin / Forrest T. / Neisan M. / Robert M.,

Recently, I've been seeing a number of threads in other forums talking about the non-diminishing abrasive technologies of some newly released polishes/compounds of other brands.

I got curious. Does Mother's also use a form of non-diminishing abrasive technology in its Professional Line?

Thanks.

I find this hard to believe that Mothers cannot even mention if they have dimishing abrasives. A lot of other companies, I know I do not have to mention names, speak openly about what properties their products have. I thought this was a question regarding the property of a product and not a formulation. I could be mistaken.

The term "diminishing abrasives" is to me, a marketing term and perhaps good Internet fodder but not a truly practical subject for discussion. All abrasives diminish in use. Some compounds may diminish more slowly than another do to its composition, size and hardness. It is a formulator’s job to choose the appropriate compound to accomplish a specific task. If a compound is to large, or hard it will scratch rather than polish. It is too soft or small; it will be ineffective to its task. So to answer the question, we do use diminishing abrasives, as does the rest of the industry. This is really a non issue that appears to have developed internet legs. I would use "non diminishing abrasives" and "pixie dust" in the same sentence.
