For Copper, Brass, Aluminum and Zinc Die Castings. The familiar brown or chocolate colored cakes of Tripoli Buffing Compound are one of the oldest and most widely used buffing compositions for cutting down and bringing out a high luster on non-ferrous metals. Its fast cutting and bright coloring action on such metals have created its wide use on all types of zinc die castings, sheet and cast brass, copper-plated work and aluminum castings and stampings.

When Perfection Counts – Turn To The Experts!

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.

I believe the Formax Mfg. Micro Fine Green Honing compound is the best to use on a hand held leather strop. The compound works brilliantly. It's easy to apply, lasts forever and produces exceptional results even for buyers who have never used before. Good stuff! Kind regards, Graeme -   Razorsharpshop and Aussie Strops
