Can it be used for exterior application ?

If you would like a Satin finish, try using our non-woven web pad IF118X that will allow you to fairly easily remove the current high polished finish. Alternatively, this product can be paired with a square satin cover plate SSF106-S6 (shown in image 3) to achieve this effect.
