Yes! Edge buffing is a technique commonly used in conjunction with an angle grinder, a buffing wheel, and compound. Achieve a shiny, polished edge effortlessly. See below:
Selecting the appropriate buffing wheel size is crucial for achieving your desired results. We recommend the 9" Airway Buffing Wheel size for most applications, striking a perfect balance between maneuverability and wheel longevity. If you require more detailed work, consider an 8" buffing wheel. Larger sizes like 10" and 12" are typically reserved for professionals dealing with extensive flat surfaces. Some users prefer 10" Airway Buffs, intending to wear them down to 8" or 9" for detailed work instead of purchasing multiple sizes.
Achieving a brilliant finish on aluminum and stainless steel involves a precise two-step process:
For aluminum, start with our Brown Tripoli Metal Polishing Compound paired with our Orange Airway Buffing Wheel.
Follow up with our Yellow Airway Buffing Wheel combined with our Green Rouge Metal Polishing Compound for the perfect shine.
For an exceptional show-quality shine, consider using a Domet Flannel or UBM buffing wheel with our Blue Rouge Metal Polishing Compound, but be sure to keep the RPMs below 2,200 for optimal results.
To polish aluminum and stainless steel wheels, pair the appropriate metal buffing and polishing compound (as listed above) with a smaller diameter airway buffing wheel to get into the hard-to-reach areas of the wheel.
Raking your buff removes hardened and burned on polishing and buffing compound from the edges of your buffing wheel. Compound build up can reduce the efficiency of the buffing wheel while also creating a rougher surface. If you notice a significant decrease in the residual metal dust produced when buffing, rake the buffing wheel and reapply a small amount of metal polishing compound.
