Celebrating 80 Years of Manufacturing Excellence!
Since 1938, Formax has been a leader in manufacturing superior-grade Buffing Compounds and Buffing Wheels for the finishing industry. Over the decades, we have developed many grades and styles of Buffing Compounds, Buffing Wheels and Polishing Accessories that have become standards in the finishing industry.
SATIN-GLO® GREASELESS POLISHING COMPOUND
The descriptive word “greaseless” is applied to this type of polishing compound because it is made completely free of grease, oil or wax. The formulations are composed of abrasive grits blended into a mixture of glue and water, which serves as the adhesive binder.
When the solid tube of Satin-Glo® compound is applied to a revolving buffing wheel, frictional heat softens the compound, transferring a coating to the wheel face. This coating dries immediately, forming a flexible and resilient abrasive cutting surface that is ready for instant use. When the abrasive head is worn down, polishing action is renewed again by applying compound over the worn head. The work surface is left dry requiring no cleaning should a subsequent painting or plating operation follow.
