Default RPMs for Buffing and Polishing

What speeds (rpm) should be used for buffing and polishing with your products using a rotary buffer and the shurhold dual action polisher?


I have a wool pad for oxidation removal and the shurhold pads for oxidation and polishing.


Please list the proper speeds for each tool using:
  • Heavy Duty Oxidation Remover
  • Buff Magic
  • Pro Polish
Thanks,
Ralph

For a rotary tool, we suggest 1800 RPM, which is pretty much industry standard. That's for using both your heavy oxidation remover and Buff Magic.

If your using Buff Magic with our Dual Action Polisher, run it at 5500 OPM (5 on the dial setting)
For applying Pro Polish, run it at 3900 OPM (3 on the speed setting)
