Premium European-style buffing wheels designed and constructed with soft cotton for the smoothest & cleanest surfaces.

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. Spectrum recommends combining these buffing wheels with Menzerna’s 480BLF Finish, 480W Finish, P275 FinishP126 Finish, P175 Super Finish, and M5 Super Finish compounds (or any of the paint/plastic focused compounds due to the sensitivity of these surfaces). We normally suggest jumping from a heavy/primary cut (orange, yellow) to the 86/82 untreated or from a secondary cut (clear treat) to the 60/60 untreated.

Untreated cotton buffs Made in the USA; Molton flannel buffs made in the European Union! Please note that because European buffs are built to the millimeter, these new buffs may require the use of our updated self-centering safety flanges for best fit. 86/82 and 60/60 untreated (20 ply) being phased out for 24 ply variations.

Additional 24 ply 10″ 86/82 and 60/60 untreated buffs in production and expected to ship week of February 19, 2024.
