12 x 5 Inch, Treated Sisal Buffing Wheel - FIRM RED
12 X 5" Bias Sisal Treated Buffing Wheel - Special FIRM RED Treatment
1/4 inch sewn, This wheel comes with a 1-1/4" Centerhole. If you require a different center hole please ask us if we can change it for you.
Each wheel is roughly 3/4 of an inch wide. This is a very popular wheel with our professional polishers. It is one of our best sellers. This wheel will last much longer than untreated wheels (3 X longer). These wheels are used for cut down operations on steel, stainless steel and aluminum. They work well as first step buffs when preparing work for the final high luster step. Use a liquid or bar type "steel cut" buffing compounds like #BP-508, #BP-401, or BP-408 with these buffing wheels. If you need a less firm sisal wheel try our MEDIUM GOLD SISAL. Sisal buffs are designed to take the pressure needed to buff out abrasive belt lines and scratches. These buffs are the same as full disc sisal buffs except the buffs are formed from bias cut strips of sisal and a metal center clinch ring is used same as bias airway buffs. Sisal buffing wheels should only be used when maximum pressure is needed to cut very hard metals.
This type of bias sisal buffing wheel can be made for you in many configurations. Presently we are only stocking this in a few sizes. Please contact us if you are interested in another size or construction.
WARNING Airway Buffs MUST BE used with the proper size Steel End Flanges, Center plates alone will not support the buffing wheel on the shaft. It is very dangerous to try and use Airway Buffing Wheels without the proper size steel end flanges.
