Polisher Buffer for Detailing
What buffing does and its benefits
If you’ve never gotten your car detailed before, or even if you have, you may not be aware of what buffing is. Some people believe that it’s nothing more than another word for polishing. While it does share similarities, buffing actually refers to a process that removes a minute layer of a vehicle’s paint. Doing so has a number of advantages, such as:
- Fresh layer revealed — This is the primary effect of buffing your car. Under the layer of paint that has been exposed to the elements for years is a fresh layer just waiting to bust out. When done correctly and with the right type of compound, this can be a great way to make your vehicle look almost new again.
- Longer lasting finish — The best way to prolong the appearance of your vehicle is to take good care of it. Buffing is one way to do this. By treating its exterior with care, your car’s finish can last quite a bit longer.
- Removes minor scratches — No matter how careful you are, scratches to your vehicle’s clear coat are bound to happen. Buffing your car will often remove these blemishes, as long as they aren’t too deep.
Three types of buffing techniques
Buffing your car definitely has some great benefits. Once you decide to get it done, you’ll need to choose the way in which it’s handled. There are three types of techniques to choose from, each with their own pros and cons:
- Manual — If you enjoy taking a hands-on approach, you can do the buffing of your car manually. The best part is that it doesn’t take as much work on your part. Unfortunately, the results often aren’t even throughout your vehicle and they will end up being more temporary than other methods.
- High Speed — This is the best choice when it comes to buffing, but it must be done by a professional who has been well-trained in its use. If you do it yourself, you may end up damaging your vehicle. If your car has scratches that you’d like to have removed, a high speed buffer is definitely the way to go.
