Technical Information

For our very wide range of polishing compounds we are using the highest quality of abrasives such as aluminum oxide, corundum, emery or tripoli. Our polishing compounds are suitable for polishing of all surfaces such as stainless steel, aluminum, brass, alloys, iron and also for other special fields of application, for example, plastic, jewelry, etc. The strong emulsions of the compounds and the quality of the production process guarantee the longest possible life of the compound itself without separation between the heavy and the light particles.

Advantages of Liquid Compounds

  • Degreasing without problems
  • Low consumption provides an economical use
  • High cooling effect ensures longer life of the buffs
  • Holding on the buff strongly provides a better polishing quality
  • Less polishing time helps to increase efficiency
  • Wide range helps to find the best surface solution

    Liquid polishing compound production technologies and consumption conditions are more complicated than those of solid compounds. There are lots of factors to be taken into consideration during the production process and at the end product. These factors need to be optimized. On the contrary, below mentioned problems occur and customer dissatisfaction comes together.

    Low Viscosity
    In case of low viscosity the liquid compound consumption increases by 25% - 35%. Liquid compound can’t hold on the buff and thus the buff remains dry. Liquid compound drops down from the spray guns. In case of low viscosity, Liquid compound separates and the compound can’t be used anymore. Even if it is mixed very well the desired result can’t be obtained.

    Too high viscosity
    In case of too high viscosity, the compound can’t move freely in the transmission channels and the spray guns can’t feed the buffs efficiently. Therefore, viscosity optimization is a must. Keeping the viscosity at optimum levels needs experience and expertise.

    Inability in Obtaining The Homogeneity

    During the production process obtaining homogeneity is a must. Unfit particle sizes of raw materials that are used in the production of liquid compound might cause clogging of the spray guns. Besides, the lubricants that constitute the liquid compound must be chosen correctly. The perfect homogeneity can only be achieved through selection of the chemicals that constitute the liquid compound according to the correct parameters and through processing these chemicals properly. In the liquid compound usage, the other factors that should be taken into account are choosing the right spray guns and using them with correct angles. The distances between the buffs and the spray guns and spray gun pressures are also important factors. Inability in choosing the revolution speed of the buffs is a frequently encountered problem in the sector. In case of desregarding this matter many problems arises during and after the polishing process. These problems are listed as following.

  • If the revolution speed of the buffs is too high, accordingly the liquid compound can’t hold on the buffs and it is scattered around. In this situation the consumption rate increases by 15% - 35%.
  • Due to the high speed of the buffs, the compound can not hold on the buffs and thus the buff consumption rate increases excessively and ignition risk of the buffs arises. Accordingly the polishing quality declines. Buff scratches are seen on the surface.
    Buff revolution speeds are indicated on a chart on the last page of this catalogue.
