Buffing with Solid Bar Compound
To achieve a high gloss finish it is first necessary to sand the surface so it is perfectly flat with all of the imperfections and orange peel removed. Depending on the type of coating, start with a medium grit sandpaper, then continue with progressively finer grits ultimately finishing with 600-1000 grit before beginning the buffing process. Keep in mind that the purpose of buffing is to remove sanding scratches and not to level the surface.
We offer a wide variety of solid bar buffing compounds that range from coarse to extremely fine, and with different properties from dry to greasy for the appropriate level of lubrication and heat reduction. In addition, our compounds are designed specifically for the material being buffed which will result in better finish quality and greater efficiency. Compounds for buffing metal will never perform as well on wood coatings as our compounds formulated for lacquer, polyurethane and polyester coating.
