NON-FERROUS COLORING
BUFFING WHEEL BAR COMPOUNDS

Sometimes referred to as White or Black Diamond Buffing Compound. Intended for buffing non-ferrous metals where the work surface is in good condition, free of deep tool or die marks. When heavy marks are present, Tripoli Buffing Compound is generally used to first cut down the surface and then a second buffing operation is performed using a “Coloring” Compound to produce a mirror-bright finish.

Description
515-6132 D-20 CUT AND COLOR COMPOUND
(Medium Dry)

A medium dry grade of a light brown color, resulting from the fact that Tripoli abrasive powder has been blended into the formula to increase the cutting action over that normally produced by a White Coloring Compound. The double-duty action resulting from this combination makes it a very popular grade for general all- around job shop work, on non-ferrous metals.

Description
515-6133 D-35 COLORING COMPOUND
(Medium Greasy)
Our most popular grade because it is adaptable for cutting down and coloring the average run of aluminum, brass, and die cast metals. Also used extensively for buffing copper plated articles, particularly where a regular Tripoli Compound is too severe and removes too much of the copper-plate. Contains a sufficient amount of grease binders to be used on most automatic buffing applications.

Description
515-6134 D-38 HIGH COLOR COMPOUND (Extra Dry)
An extra dry grade developed for “coloring out” operations on brass and sheet aluminum. Its light cutting action minimizes the danger of cutting too aggressively on the metal. Also recommended on recessed or indented surfaces that ordinarily would pack up with a greasier grade, giving difficult cleaning problems. Leaves a clear bright finish, free of dirt.
