Buff and Blend Disc 8″ (Single Ply)
This type ofÂ Buff/Blend in single ply blueÂ is made of aÂ tightly wovenÂ material. Not to be confused with less dense materials sold in stores. The discÂ measures 1/2″ in thickness in single ply application.Â Sold in single ply but can be used in 2 ply application. 2 ply application will require arbor extension for most models of buffers/grinders. When used in 2 ply application it will stiffen up and create an even more abrasive surface.
BUFF AND BLEND USES:
TheÂ blue disc isÂ often the second step in heavy oxidation removal. It is best to use a green buff/blend disc first.Â It should be followed up with either this single ply or Fibretech Surface Prep Discs (2 ply glued). Followed by the Satin airway toÂ lift the heavy removal lines.Â This product works great for removing heavy oxidation/pitting in a shorter amount of time. Here at Evan’s Detailing and Polishing we use them to remove concrete off of aluminum wheels. In addition, they can be used to remove years of acid or chemical burns in one short application. DiscÂ is a high strength buff and blend material used in heavy removal of product. To achieve that show shine from a heavily oxidized piece of aluminum it will take time and multiple steps. But the Buff/Blend High Strength discs will cut down your sanding and prep time before polishing.
If you are looking for a Show quality finish out of your heavily oxidized aluminum consider purchasing the 3 step kit. AlsoÂ if looking for a higher strength cut check out theÂ Buff and Blend High Strength/ Heavy Cut Green 8â€³ Disc. Comparatively,Â wanting a lighter strength calls forÂ the Satin Airway. Furthermore you could use sandpaperÂ to sand even further toÂ achieve that Show Shine finish. Our recommendation in achieving the show shine finish is as follows: 3 Step Buff/Blend High Strength green, Blue, then Satin Airway. Followed by the 320-400-600 grits of sandpaper. To finish use the 2 step metal polish kit to polish to perfection.
