Use Abralon 360 grit for matte finish.

 

For a satin finish, continue with 1000 grit. For a gloss finish, continue with 2000 grit.

Remember to wipe the surface clean between steps to prevent contamination scratches.

Abralon may be used dry, or with a water mist for lubrication. Best results for high gloss finishes are achieved when Abralon is used wet.
