Buffing Wheel Speed Chart

Buff wheel speed and buff pressure are two elements that must work together to produce best finish, safety and economy. The proper pressure must be applied to the work piece to produce the friction that allows the compound to buff.

  • Inadequate pressure gives NO buffing action.
  • Excess pressure will cause the buff wheel speed to be reduced and/or the buff to collapse and the operation to be LESS EFFICIENT or EVEN CAUSE A FIRE!

To assist you in determining the proper buffing speed you require, we have created a speed chart to help you determine the proper buff wheel speed.
