Plastic buffing compounds are formulated to give the range from high stock removal to high luster.
Buffing lint can be a problem due to the static electric charge built up during plastic buffing operations. Therefore, we have incorporated static-free ingredients in our compounds.
The most popular buffs are full disk BR (60/60 Cotton Cloth) buffs with one row of sewing around the arbor hole. Buffs should run at 3,000 to 4,000 surface feet per minute. Buffing pressure should be minimized to keep the heat low and prevent burning or melting of the part. Keeping the speed low and frequent compound application will assist the process.
