Razor buffs are a specialty buff designed for finishing narrow recessed areas that are inaccessible to most full disc buffs. They are manufactured by sewing various diameters of cloth discs together with the smaller discs in the center, this produces a polishing buff that is thicker in the center and tapers out to a very thin working face. Generally selected for finishing narrow channels or recessed areas, sharp bends, and other difficult-to-reach areas. Razor edge buffs are designed for use on a tapered spindle or mandrel. Available in mill treated cloth for enhanced cut down performance as well as the softer untreated cloth for final finishing.
Muslin is a loosely woven cotton fabric. It’s made using the plain weave technique, which means that a single weft thread alternates over and under a single warp thread. Muslin is known as the material used in fashion prototypes to test patterns before cutting and stitching the final product. Razor edge buffs are made from muslin and are thicker in the middle and taper dowwn to a razor edge.
Aggressive, extremely durable buffs for the toughest polishing jobs. Feature high-tech chemical treatment that makes them last longer and break down slower than conventionally treated buffs. Ideal for production use. Speed up cutting and polishing of hard metals such as platinum and stainless steel. Made of premium-weave muslin with combed edges.
Razor-Edge buffs have multiple concentric rows of stitching which stiffens the buff. Generally, stitched buffs are used for cutting compounds (such as Tripoli) on soft metals. On harder metals like platinum, palladium, steel and stainless steel, Stitched Buffs are used for both cutting compounds and polishing compounds such as rouge.
Loose polishing buffs are much softer and more flexible, follow contours easily, and are generally used for final polishing with rouge or other high-shine compound.
