Electric Buffer Types Applications

Giving your car a fantastic glow has been made easy thanks to the electric buffer. A smooth shine can be achieved using two special types of this buffer; the rotary electric buffers which spin the padded disc in a fixed motion at a constant speed and the random orbital buffers that can spin the pad and also oscillate about their central axis to move the pad in different directions.

Both buffers are simple to use and apply the same rules to wax and polish your car.

Before the buffing job begins a few things will be needed that go together with using the electric buffer. You will need a pair of goggle for eye protection, the automotive wax for the car, masculine tape with weak adhesive properties, a damp sponge and some clean rags.

The first step is to secure the car in a shaded area before buffing; it ensures that the wax does not get dried up on the car due to the sun heat. Hard and dried up wax gives the electric buffer a tough to impossible job in your shining your car. You might need to wash and dry the car first before the buffing procedure is started.

The next step is to use the tape to seal off all raised parts, seams, headlights and windows of the car. It takes a lot of time trying to haze of the wax in these areas with the electric buffer. Additionally, the crevices or seams of the car should not come into contact with the car, hazing off the wax won’t be an easy task.

That noted you can now apply the wax evenly on the areas that need buffing with the dump sponge. You can divide the waxing job into areas of two by two feet for a quicker wax application. The even distribution of wax can alternatively be done using a waxing pad fixed on the electric buffer. Whether you are using a damp sponge or a waxing pad, always ensure the wax is applied in a circular motion being gentle on the straight strokes so you may not scrape off the car paint.

When the wax is evenly distributed, give it a two minute span to become indistinct before powering up the electric buffer. To be more accurate with the waiting period, it is more reasonable to base the estimation on the present weather conditions and how evenly the wax was distributed.

When the wax completely thins off, plug in the electric buffer and put on your eye protection. If you used waxing pads to apply the wax, switch them with clean polishing pads. When the electric buffer is powered up, give it time to gain speed then place it on the surface to polish. Move the buffer in a semicircular motion making sure the polishing pad lays flat on the surface. The rotational speed can be adjusted depending on the state of the car’s paint and the type of automotive wax you use.

Work the buffer on the surface until all the wax completely disappears and you are left with a smooth and shiny looking car. When this is achieved, switch off the electric buffer and unplug its cord. Take off the tape from the car and the pads from the buffer.

You now have a lustrous looking car!
