Osborn – Medium Dip-Treated Sisal Airway Wheel
Industrial grade medium treated open face sisal buff for use in heavy cut down operations on stainless steel.
Open face sisal buffs feature a pleated design that allows for cooler operation and increased flexibility than full disc sisal wheels; they also provide some oscillation on the face to help prevent rippling and streaking. Medium firmness dip treatment adds to cut aggressiveness and buff life. Spectrum recommends combining this wheel with Menzerna’s 439T Heavy Cut, 456G Heavy Cut, or 333 Medium Cut compound. Osborn has substituted the Matchless dip-treatment of this buff for one of their own with similar properties to maximize cost-effectiveness. Wider buffs such as this may rub against the body of the polisher and may need spacers/arbor extenders to fit more easily on short-arbor machines (e.g., Makita).
Please note: Matchless was recently purchased by Osborn (Jackson Lea). Osborn has not yet been able to fully commission Matchless’ original buff production machinery; as a result, Osborn has continued supplying airways produced with Matchless’ cloth but manufactured on their own buffing wheel production equipment. As a result, buff appearance may vary from those pictured – this is, however, a temporary solution as they work to start up Matchless’ equipment and bring all their equipment to the same specifications.
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.
