Cloths for polishing vary by the height of their fiber, known as the nap and by the stiffness or resiliency of the fiber
Conversely, higher napped polishing cloths provide a more gentle abrasive interaction for the final polish.
Ideally the amount of damage produced during cutting and grinding was minimized through proper blade and abrasive grinding so that polishing can be minimized
In general, the lower nap also non-woven and stiffer fiber cloths are used for the rough polishing steps
It is the step which is required to completely eliminate previous damage
Nypad - this is a low napped silk polishing pad for intermediate polishing primarily with intermediate dia-mond abrasives
These types of polishing cloths or pads are very effective in removing sectioning damage done by cutting and coarse grinding
