Abrasives are natural or synthetic particles found in polishes and compounds which are used to remove surface imperfections on paint, wheels, plastics and glass. A non-abrasive compound or polish will remove imperfections without cutting through the surface and usually performs a general cleaning of the surface. Traditional waxes, cleaning waxes and sealants are non-abrasive.
Substances below a pH value of 7 are declared acids. Examples include sulfuric acid, phosphoric acid and hydrochloric acid.

The physical property of how well the object bonds to a surface. Some protectants need time to ensure proper adhesion to the surface while inside a ventilated vicinity.
