EFFEKTA buffing wheels are high-performance tools for finish-buffing. They are constructed of multiple pleated plies of raw cotton fabric, which ensures a good cooling effect with a very high finish-buffing performance. The soft pleats perfectly adapt to complex surface geometries and provide for random contact patterns. Therefore, EFFEKTA buffing wheels produce particularly uniform surface qualities.

For our professional polishing discs, we only use Oeko-Tex® certified fabrics made from raw cotton from controlled cultivation areas. All our cotton cretonnes in plain weave are 100% free from synthetic fibers. For this reason, our polishing discs wear out evenly and are particularly low in dust.
N2550 is a firm raw cotton plain weave fabric with a specific weight of approx. 230 g / m². Buffing discs made of N2550 are used in particular for general buffing of non-iron, steel and stainless steel.
We manufacture your desired bore individually for you. We cover every known bore diameter for industrial polishing machines *
If you need other bore diameters or special adapters (e.g. for hexagonal shafts, with keyways, etc.), we will be happy to manufacture them on request **
* Polishing discs drilled individually at the customer's request are excluded from exchange or return in accordance with our Terms of Cancellation.
EFFEKTA high-performance buffing wheels with extra soft pleats are particularly suitable for high-end finishing of complex surface geometries of sensitive painted surfaces, including non-ferrous metals and stainless steel.
The very soft, single-layer folds adapt flexibly to any surface geometry, allowing to deeply immerse the workpieces into the disc. Even with extended contact zones, thanks to the EFFEKTA pleats a performant airstream and thus very effective cooling is ensured.
EFFEKTA buffing wheels offer a particularly even high gloss, especially in combination with our 100% seams-free technology.
Heat Development of EFFEKTA Buffing Wheels
Due to their large contact surface, EFFEKTA buffing wheels develop significant frictional heat. With its powerful air flow, EFFEKTA can efficiently remove this excess heat from the work piece
Materials with low thermal conductivity (e.g. plastics, wood, etc.) tend to quickly overheat. This can be avoided by carefully dosing the immersion depth and polishing time
Trimming Cotton Buffing Wheels
Careful preparation of the buffing / polishing tool is a prerequisite for an optimal surface result. Please follow our recommendations for trimming cotton buffing wheels
Used buffing discs should also be dressed again on a regular basis. This is especially true if residues of polishing paste have solidified on the working surface or the buffing wheels are heavily contaminated with material abrasion
