The difference between Micarta and G10 is: Micarta is a high pressure laminate that (often) uses linen or canvas based fiber. G10 is an epoxy based high pressure laminate that used glass mat (think fiber glass) for the fiber base. G10 is tougher and more water resistant than Micarta.
Tip: I tried white buff, green buff, pink no scratch and then finally black buff compound. The black worked the best and left a nice, dark satin finish. The white was next best leaving a gloss shine but left the fiber with a slightly dirty look. The Pink no scratch just looked bad and the green chrome left a green tinge.
Tip: This is glass based. Wear a respirator. Wear gloves when you are cutting it too. After cutting a bunch of it, I can feel several dozen little prickly glass threads in my hands.
