Premium European-style semi-firm buffing wheels designed and constructed with a specialty textile for cut & colour buffing on metal.

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!

Many polishers subscribe to a two-step polishing process, but this is how maximum depth, colour, and clarity are achieved. By utilizing these secondary cut/colouring buffs (combined with medium cut & finishing compounds), you can more efficiently remove heavy-cut scratches from your surface and put colour into the metal before completing that "wet" look with finishing buffs and Super Finish compounds. These unique buffs sport a specialty heavy-weight, lightly treated textile. The lower thread count with with an almost 40% heavier, thicker yarn allows for even greater compound retention, more buffing action than a standard weight textile, and a cleaner finish than standard 86/82 fabrics.

Pairs with: Menzerna 333, Menzerna P14F, Menzerna P164, Menzerna P275, Menzerna P126, Menzerna 480W, Menzerna 480BLF

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 in conjunction with a center reducer plate for proper mounting and safe operation. Industrial grade.

Hilzinger Max RPM: 14" 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.
