Buffing Wheels

As the delivery mechanism for compounds, selecting the right buffing wheel is an important factor in successful finishing. To this end, Matchless supplies full disk buffs, bias airway buffs, sisal (both bias and full disk), and cloth/sisal constructions. These buffs are available in a wide variety of cloths, sewing arrangements, diameters, face widths, arbor sizes, and dip treatments. Just like our compounds, our buffing wheels are constructed to your specific requirements and quantities.

Bias buff wheel

Bias Airway Buffs

Since the advent of automatic buffing equipment, bias airway buffs have become the industry standard for buffing wheels. Although the buffing equipment will establish some parameters (similar to full disk sewn buffs) bias airway buffs may be constructed in a wide variety of fabrics and treatments.

The advantages of bias airway buffs over conventional buffs include durability, firmness and cooler running temperatures.
