In 1995 Micro Mesh became known in conservation through a PR
campaign of theirs. There polishing systems was developed for Plexi
and carboglas polishing of airplanes'' windshields, now-a-days also
for lenses which substitute glasses, etc.. They have abrasive papers
for whet and dry polishing up to grade 12,000 (2 micron) I used it
also for polishing cross-section and for very fine sharpening of
lead pencils's points! If I am right it is part of Valentine Walsh's
tool kit for cross sections "VW fecit".

At the time Micromesh delivered a video demonstrating application.

Just write micromesh in the Google slot and you get the information
you need, 715 000 entries to this day! Many of the entries on
micromesh though deal with other products with a similar name micro
mesh, micro-mesh, regarding clothing etc.
