The natural fiber of the Agave plant, grown in South Africa and South America, is a cost-effective and robust natural fiber for metal-polishing, which has become material of choice due to it’s qualities in the polishing process. By using only first class, long sisal fibers for matting and braid, the quality of the sisal polishing tools is exceptional and guarantees a long life. Sisal buffing with the appropriate compounds would be the next step of the polishing process, after grinding with abrasive belt grits of 240 for non-ferrous metals and grit 280 for stainless steel: pure cotton buffs would be hard pressed to do this. This conversion from abrasive belt grinding to sisal buffing at an early stage is economical and cost effective; a good industrial finish will be achieved but no mirror finish without refinement. Sisal buffing wheels are frequently impregnated with special treatments to increase the longevity of the buff, enhance the polishing effect, and enhance compound retention – resulting in savings on both polishing buffs and compounds.
Buff will need to be raked prior to initial use. Does not include a center reducer plate. Requires the use of a set or standard end flanges in conjunction with a center reducer plate for proper mounting and safe operation. Industrial grade.
