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 MPA 5010.
- We always recommend starting this process with polishing, then if needed, sand first, then polish with our 3M-recommended compounds 36045 and MPA 5010.
