The Skinny on Buffing Wheels for Metal Polish Application
Here’s the skinny on buffers they were created to eliminate the elbow grease, the rubbing and buffing and all the effort the majority of polishes and application require in order to restore and polish the metal(s). Ever wonder why? Metals are porous and the build up can be severe, applying abrasives you’re literally scratching the build up. It’s a manual method of removal. Buffers just help the polisher apply more effort because they’re able to use more applied pressure than by a hand application.
Which brings us to the difference that makes the difference. Sheen Genie is for one of many reasons utilizes a non-abrasive formula. With 30 specialized and designed especially for today’s problematic areas and applications in metal polishing there’s simply no requirement for the use of a buffer. Further more the level of gloss is much higher because fine layers of the metal aren’t being scratched away, in turn leaving the finish smoother and ultimately a higher gloss/shine. However, many customers who’ve been so use to polishing being such a job ask if they can use Sheen Genie with their buffer or wheel. The answer is yes! Sheen Genie can absolutely be used with any type of buffer.
