TRIPOLI BUFFING WHEEL BAR COMPOUNDS

Description

BUFFING COMPOUND 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.

For buffing down castings and stampings, a greasy grade is most generally selected because the extra percentage of grease binders keeps the compound on the buff face longer and hence the cutting action is greater. A second buffing operation using a drier grade of Tripoli Compound, can be used if a smoother and brighter finish is required. Practical with any type of buffing wheel but generally used on a tight, spiral sewed buff, pocket type buff or bias type buff.  (Bar color: Brown)

PRODUCT NO. GRADE DESCRIPTION
515-6101 T-2 TRIPOLI COMPOUND (VERY DRY)
This is a very dry grade recommended for use on light work that requires very little surface cutting down. Excellent for sheet brass or aluminum stampings, small zinc or brass die-cast parts or for “color buffing” copper plated articles to a bright, clear finish. Leaves the work very clean and does not pack down in recesses or crevices.
515-6102 T-3 TRIPOLI COMPOUND (DRY)
Classed as a dry grade of Tripoli Compound, T-3 is used extensively on small work of brass, aluminum, zinc die castings and copper plated articles. Has a faster cutting action than T-2, listed above, because the bar contains a larger percentage of grease binders; however, it does leave the work clean and free from a dirty or greasy film.
515-6103 T-6 CUT AND COLOR TRIPOLI (ALL PURPOSE)
T-6 is a medium dry type of compound often referred to as “Double Duty Tripoli” because it cuts down and colors the work in one buffing operation on many applications. The grease binders have a high melting point making the Tripoli bar quite hard. Recommended for buffing copper plated articles, brass, bronze, aluminum and zinc die castings in all forms.
515-6104 T-8 TRIPOLI COMPOUND (MEDIUM GREASY)
A medium greasy grade which has proven to be a popular all-around grade. Has very good cutting and coloring qualities making it an ideal compound for shops running a variety of work.
515-6105 T-12 TRIPOLI COMPOUND FAST CUT (GREASY)
This is a greasy, extra fast cutting grade of Tripoli containing a high percentage of aggressive abrasives combined with Tripoli Powder, which produces a faster cutting action. Used extensively on heavy buffing work and all types of automatic buffing machines.
515-6106 T-523 TRIPOLI COMPOUND (EXTRA GREASY)
This is an extra greasy, fast cutting grade developed for heavy duty work on brass, bronze, aluminum and zinc die castings in all forms.
