If you have the correct buffing wheel and proper polishing compounds, nearly any metal or hard plastic can be buffed to a high polish finish or a nice satin sheen. This is due to the varying differences in the molecular compositions in metals. The appearance of a metal is as different as its density and luster. 

What does that mean exactly? Well, it means to properly enhance the shine on a piece of jewelry, you may be required to use a completely different set of polishes and buffs to get the best results. Stainless steel, chrome, aluminum, you name it. All those metals are composed of differently, thus need to be treated different when it comes to polishing.

Buffing Process Factors

There is no such thing as a all inclusive polish or buff. There are six factors that need to be considered when starting the buffing process:

  1. Equipment
  2. Buff Selection
  3. Compound Selection
  4. Technique
  5. Knowledge of the Material Being Buffed
  6. Protection of Finished Work

Understanding the steps is the best way to get professional finishes with your buffing and polishing. In the metal and polishing industry, there are typically three terms that are used almost interchangeably: deburring, polishing and buffing.

They are slightly different, as deburring is the removal of all sharp edges, air bubbles and burrs on an item. Polishing is the use of abrasives in order to get the surface finish a more improved and refined look. And buffing is the step to get a smooth, bright and high luster final finish on whatever item you are working on.
