BUFFING COMPOUND FOR COPPER, BRASS, ALUMINUM AND ZINC DIE CASTINGS
The familiar brown or chocolate colored cakes of Tripoli Buffing Compound are one of the oldest and most widely used buffing compositions for cutting down and bringing out a high luster on non-ferrous metals. Its fast cutting and bright coloring action on such metals have created its wide use on all types of zinc die castings, sheet and cast brass, copper-plated work and aluminum castings and stampings.
For buffing down castings and stampings, a greasy grade is most generally selected because the extra percentage of grease binders keeps the compound on the buff face longer and hence the cutting action is greater. A second buffing operation using a drier grade of Tripoli Compound, can be used if a smoother and brighter finish is required. Practical with any type of buffing wheel but generally used on a tight, spiral sewed buff, pocket type buff or bias type buff.
