Low viscosity suspension tends to be used more for dozing applications. It is the better choice when polishing aluminum or brass materials.

Typically, we recommend high viscosity suspension because it offers a lower relief rate. This means that it does not waste the diamond on the polishing process. Additionally, the interaction between the polishing pad and high viscosity suspension allows it to stick to the pad for much longer (roughly 30 seconds) as oppose to roughly 10 sec with low viscosity suspension.
