Why tin oxide?


#1

Why tin oxide for polishing marble, instead of much cheaper aluminum
oxide, or maybe zinc oxide?

And, do you have a favourite supplier for purchasing it?

I can’t speak for marble because I’ve never polished it. I use Tin
Oxide because it will polish about any stone. I use Tin Oxide on
split cowhide or in Vibratory tumbler polishing.

And, do you have a favourite supplier for purchasing it?
