Premium European-style semi-firm buffing wheels designed and constructed 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 removing heavy-cut scratches from your surface and put colour into the metal before completing that “wet” look with finishing buffs and Super Finish compounds. Spectrum recommends combining these buffs with Menzerna’s P14F, P164, and 333 medium cut compounds and/or P275, P126, 480W, and 480BLF finishing compounds.

Made in the USA! 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.
