All in one buffing componentFebruary 1, 2017
Q. Hi, I am looking for an all in one buffing component for all metals. Can we create a component which can be used for polishing all metals? Please guide for the same.Mosam Shah

A. Hi Mosam. We have many threads here about the difficulties of buffing stainless steel even with a carefully chosen sequence of compounds specific to stainless steel. We also have many threads about the difficulties of buffing aluminum even with a sequence of compounds tailored to aluminum. Good luck, but the idea of a single buffing compound to polish all metals in one step doesn't sound even remotely plausible to me.

Q. Ok, Can we prepare buffing component for stainless steel with sodium tripolyphosphate? Is there any product better than calcined alumina for preparing the buffing component for stainless steel?mosam shah [returning]

A. Ted gave you good advice; however, an aluminum oxide compound product seems to be a good general purpose product (usually white in color). Meaning it will work on all metals to improve surface finishes, but it may not get the best results on any or all materials.
