Just for reference i spoke with my flitz sales rep last week and asked about the abrasive number for the standard flitz tube. He said it would be equal to about 4000 grit sand paper.

You can also get Simichrome through Dennis Kirk. Either tube or can. Very fast shipping. The main thing to remember about Kirk is you need to spend $90 to get the free shipping.
