The pattern in Kinon® runs through the material and is repairable with simple sanding and polishing unlike common laminates.
There is no clear coat on standard Kinon® material; it is naturally high gloss. In order to repair any deep surface scratches, burns, scuffs or after applying any edging material, you may sand and polish Kinon® to return to its factory finish.
If using a dark color Kinon®, apply the appropriate Mohawk stain to color any compound that may settle in surface pores, grooves or gaps.
For any lighter surface scratches, you may just need polishing alone with Farecla Profile Liquid Compound.
Standard Polishing (Factory Standard 2020): to remove light scratch polish at 1300 rpm to 1500 rpm with a wool bonnet using Farecla Select Compound followed by polishing with Advanced Plus to achieve factory level finish. Repeat sequence as needed.
For deeper scratches sand with 3M Trizact foam 1000 & water + 3M Trizact Foam 3000 & water + Standard Polishing= standard factory finish.
For deepest scratch removal possible without causing serious finish modifications and to remove router marks from trim router use 3M Trizact 1500 + 3M Trizact Foam 1000 & water + 3M Trizact Foam 3000 & water + Standard Polishing = Deepest level repair.
