A beautiful shine thanks to WALTER buffers and polishers
More sheen for the best price
Dulled surfaces and faded paint require the appropriate tools to bring their shine back to full glory. Use an unsuitable tool and you could end up with unsightly sanding marks or even worse damage than you began with. WALTER has the right buffer and polisher for every need – and all at an unbeatable price!
How does a buffer work?
Using circular movements, a buffer distributes the applied polishing agent onto a surface. The movement allows the polishing grains found in the polish to work on the surface, tackling unevenness, furrows and grooves, and leaving the surface with a smooth, flawless and shiny appearance.
Depending on the finish, accessories such as soft and rough pads or dusters made of various materials can be attached to the polishing disc.
What is the difference between rotary polishers and orbital polishers?
Rotary polishers use rotating movements to make a surface shine. Orbital polishers add oscillation to the circular movements. This means: the polishing disc not only rotates, but also orbits around the centre of the gear pin.
The slower operation of an orbital buffer allows more time for testing your movements out – making this option ideal for anyone working with a buffer for the first time. In addition, the surface does not heat up so much during the polishing process.
A rotary buffer on the other hand scores points with its high polishing power – these polishers are best suited to experienced DIYers and craftsmen.
Which polishing agent do I need?
Choosing a polishing agent depends on what needs to be polished and what type of finish it has. Different paints and surfaces need different polishing agents – including final polishes and mirror finishes. Polishing agents are available in liquid and paste formulas.
Proper polishing – 4 easy steps for using your buffer!
Step 1: Thoroughly clean the area to be polished. This prevents further paint damage from occurring during polishing. Tape off rubber and plastic when polishing vehicles.
Step 2: Apply the polishing agent to the surface evenly with a sponge or towel.
Step 3: Start the buffer on a slow speed. WALTER tip: While polishing, make sure to use large movements and avoid polishing edges and corners for too long.
Step 4: After polishing, use a soft towel to give the surface a finishing touch. Your car will shine like new!
