Utilizing a higher thread count textile with roughly 30% more heft than domestic Domet flannel, these ultra-soft buffing wheels provide an unparalleled final finish, especially paired with Menzerna Super Finish compounds. The additional weight and density provide more efficient buffing action and heat generation than domestic materials, allowing for quicker work, slower buffing speeds, and finer finishes even when using dry, dense compounds with higher melting points. Made with extra plys for longer life and better blending. Please note doubled up 24 ply Molton flannels may require an arbor extension to mount initially; they tend to compress left on the double flanges for a bit and should mount normally afterwards. Assembled in the United States!
Regular price $49.49 CAD

Premium European-style buffing wheels designed and constructed with heavy, ultra-soft brushed Molton flannel for finest mirror finishes.

After a long wait, we're proud to introduce Spectrum Professional Series buffing wheels made by Hilzinger America. These buffing wheels sport higher grades of raw material than are regularly available in North America, and come combined with exceptional construction and clinch ring strength. Though they come at a greater cost, they more than make up for it through enhanced durability, efficiency, retained firmness throughout their lifespan, and - more importantly - finer finishes in less time/fewer steps. Please note that the cotton used in these buffs tends to hold compound much better than domestic fabrics - as a result, particularly after a break-in period, it's easier to accidentally overload your compound. A little goes a long way!

At this point, you will not be accomplishing any cutting action - you will simply be minimizing (and ideally, eliminating) any buff trails and fine scratches from previous stages. Soft and flexible buffing wheels allow you to apply the finest compounds gently and evenly, resulting in a beautiful, flawless mirror finish. Utilizing a higher thread count textile with roughly 30% more heft than domestic Domet flannel, these ultra-soft buffing wheels provide an unparalleled final finish, especially paired with Menzerna Super Finish compounds. The additional weight and density provide more efficient buffing action and heat generation than domestic materials, allowing for quicker work, slower buffing speeds, and finer finishes even when using dry, dense compounds with higher melting points.

Assembled in the United States! Please note doubled up 24 ply Molton flannels may require an arbor extension to mount initially; they tend to compress left on the double flanges for a bit and should mount normally afterwards. 

Pairs with: Menzerna 480BLF, Menzerna 480W, Menzerna P126, Menzerna P175, Menzerna M5

Buff will need to be raked prior to initial use. Does not include a center reducer plate. Requires the use of a self-centering safety flange set or standard end flanges (ideally) in conjunction with a center reducer plate for proper mounting and safe operation. Industrial grade.

Hilzinger Max RPM: 12" x 5" = 1,700 RPM

Please note that while these buffs are being used without issue at 5k, 6k, and even 8.5k RPM, Hilzinger-Thum/Hilzinger America will not warranty buffing wheels run at excessive speeds. Do so at your own risk. Because Hilzinger has pushed their production machinery to its limits (at our request) to produce these buffs, you may notice small gaps between the material and clinch rings on some individual buffs. Rest assured that this simply because the material has become, effectively, incompressible, and that is it still well-secured in the ring. Keep in mind also that European-style clinch rings leave these gaps more visible than other clinch ring styles, which also have hidden gaps.

Hilzinger-Thum has been making buffing and grinding tools for over 120 years and is one of the few companies recommended by Menzerna for buffing wheels. Using the highest quality raw materials available, Hilzinger America in Ohio continues their tradition by producing customized buffing wheels for Spectrum.
