Will a regular buffer work with Alumabuff?


Curtis Gormley asked:

Will a regular buffer work with Alumabuff to keep the cost down on cleaning my pontoons?

No. Rotary and orbital buffers and grinders will cut away the surface metal and change the appearance to chrome. Chrome finished aluminum takes 10 times more labor to achieve. Linear buffers move back and forth, parallel to the grain of the aluminum so there is much less cutting of the surface metal and the original silver mill finish is maintained.

You can find more information about buffing your pontoons in the Alumabuff FAQ section, or in the FAQ section of other related products.

Thanks for your question,
