Our metal polishing compounds are used with our Airway Buffing Wheels to increase the effectiveness of the wheel while being used during the cutting, buffing, and polishing process. Some are of a coarser consistency and are usually used to remove scratches while the others are finer, which lends to them being used to shine and finish your work. They should be applied to airway buffing wheels by coating the edges of the airway buffs like below:
How do I prep for polishing?
Prepping is almost entirely all about sanding. We recommend starting with 180 grit for most wheels and stepping forward to 220 grit, and finishing with 400 grit sanding disks. Most polishing, for aluminum, can be polished well after prepping with 400 grit—finer grits are not usually necessary before polishing with tripoli compound.
Two points to keep in mind that as an alternative to sanding discs one of most popular products is the buff and blend prep discs. Most users will not need green buff and blend discs as those are often used more for concrete wheels. The blue buff and blend disc can help remove dirt, grime, and rust from a wheel to provide a clean surface to begin polishing with compound. We do recommend hitting an aluminum wheel with our maroon satin airway prior to going to polish with tripoli compound as the blue buff and blend disc may leave some hash marks that won't come out without a finer sanding of 400 grit or the maroon airway.
What are the steps for polishing aluminum?
Tripoli compounds such as our T-88 Tripoli should be used for initial cutting and buffing, with the aim of removing more apparent scratches and blemishes during metal restoration on aluminum. It is the first step on on polishing aluminum and is paired with our orange airway buffing wheels. It is not used on stainless for polishing.
Our G-16 Green rouge is often used as the second step in polishing aluminum. It is paired with our yellow airway buffing wheel. This should produce a fantastic clean shine.
We offer two final finishing compounds—blue rouge and the purple polishing compound. Both represent a show finish and we recommend that you pair either one of these final show finishing compounds with a white flannel buffing wheel. Keep in mind many of our polishers are quite happy with the two-step process outlined above and leave show polishes only to their most cherished pieces.
What do the colors mean for metal polishing compound?
The color of the polishing compound is almost always a byproduct of the natural abrasive ingredients. Tripoli powder, pictured below for example, is an abrasive product that along with the other formula's ingredients allows the buffing wheel to polish a metal surface. These abrasives are often pigments as well causing the bar color to take on the appearance of the abrasive.
In situations where similar in color appearances have substantially different abrasive qualities, many manufactures (ourselves included) can add separate pigment or dye to help differentiate the products.
The tanks I have polished using your products went from trash to mirror finish.
As a guy who polishes renegade has been by far some of the best items I've used to do my job.
Super los productos me encanto el resultado final
Easy to use
Used this to polish aluminum wheels to mirror finish.
Cuts faster than standard rouge
I always use your product I have a detailing company I wish you guys carry 12”airways wheel’s I polish every day
Excellent product!! It adds that perfect touch for a professional shine!! It takes it to another level
Used for my first cut on my 60 year old Airstream. Used an Airway wheel.
Talk about instant gratification.
Only downside is strangers stopping to admire.
Good stuff really worked well with yellow air buffing pad
Brought a totally different shine to these wheels I polished. Made them really pop after the cut stage.
I've tried so many compounds but this ones, fir sure one of the Best.
Again with the 18 year old Aluma mct.You can see what the fenders looked like before you fine tripoli and green bar.
Been here before, 18 year old Aluma mct.Renegade products did what you see here.It is nice to actually buy something that works with you, and not against you. 6000rpm cut with tripoli. Same rpm.with that green that works so well. Literally shave looking in the fenders. You guys make me smile.
Renegade products work great for my application, the canoe was never had a better shine.
Competition purple is on a totally different level
Started with purchasing a bundle kit. Than I started buying certain products that I use more of!
Love it the bar and cutting wheel
Fenders we’re really beat up and dull. Your products brought them back to life! Will definitely continue using these products on all future projects.

First time user. I watched a couple of YouTube videos with your products being used. So I decided to give it a go and I’m satisfied with the outcome. Currently polishing a trailer.
Works very well!!
Puttin my renegade products to work!!
Leaves a nice polished finish
Great product. I will recommend it.
Amateur polisher working to bring some shine to my fire truck. Orange wheel and tripoli first cut, then yellow wheel with the green. Very Happy with the product first time cutting diamond plate. The pros make it look so easy
That work well and it’s my first try!
On s/s 2B I follow all the step they suggest. And the final wow. My customer enjoy this personnal back light .
I haven't used it yet. I will use it on my restoration project in the next month.
Very good product excellent we love it it’s work for our business thank you
Me encanta.. con una buena technica queda todo de show..
Very good product! Shipping took alittle longer then expected but it was also the holidays
It's fire the best cutting block I've ever used
Good bar. I use it on the orange and yellow wheel
I started off with the orange buffing wheel and the brown compound... then to the white buffing wheel with the purple compound... it did awesome... fyi... it was the first time i ever tried to polish aluminum. Only wish i could get smaller buffing wheels.
I knew i was buying the right products from the start!!
Excellent compound for aluminum
Needed more to complete large pontoon
great product will definitely buy again
The fast cut brown bar works as advertised. During the summer months is nice because the bar won't melt in hot humid areas. I would recommend it!
since i stared to use renegade products, my polishing jobs are way better, here in the picture you can see a ford 5.0 intake,valve covers and a supercharged using a 3 step of polishing staring with the brown bar & orange wheel, then the colored stage with the green bar and yellow wheel and for the finish the blue bar and white wheel
Renegade products for the win!
Thanks guys for the great service & products
I love the product
Awsome to use and great Availability and shipping
Top notch products. Really don’t know what I would do without it
The purple rogue worked awesome on the white wheel and brought the wheels back to looking like chrome.
Gives whatever you polish an amazing finish.
Best you can buy on earth
Applying the right amount of this product save me a good amount of time and good results.
Really good color bar you don't need to apply a whole lot to get nice glossy shine.
It's simply a great product at affordable price,I have tried other products in the same price range but they don't work as well is this.
pontoon boat shine worked well
Green with the yellow buff really brought out the shine
easy to apply and works great
Perfect for making metal shine it’s best!
Great rouge doesn’t seem watered down and stands up to heat
Used with orange airway, fast cutting! Very efficient!
Best Products I use...makes my customers happy & Styling They Love It....#MILEHIGHPOLISH
I use the brown bar with the orange pad gets a good cut
I use the green bar on the yellow pad after I cut with a orange pad and brown bar it cleans up any leftovers from the previous step and gets me ready for using the green bar with the white pad
I use the purple bar with the white finishing pad for a good final finish normal steps orange pad with brown bar yellow pad green bar white pad green bar then some times purple on higher end wheels or parts
i wish your flat rate shipping was not 16 bucks. the product is good but paying more for shipping than the actual materials when the flat rate box is 10.60 irks me. it's also taken at least a week every time i've ordered before the shipment gets dropped.
The products work great, they just need to offer better shipping options.
Making Shine Perfected With Renegade Products...
Renegade Products are Simply The Best..Great Customer Service...
Love the new purple rouge it’s magic
Best cutting compound
It did a great job polishing my tarnished brass house numbers.
Great bar . Great shine
You can see the quality in first cut renegade products are on fire I wouldn't use any other products
Works good but I don’t use it much just when I do nicer wheels sometimes it does help with the color
Works great I use it with the yellow and white pad I barely ever use the purple bar I just rake the pad good and use more or less polish depending on what stage I’m at
