The requirements of non-ferrous metal polishing

Ferrous metals, such as steel, stainless steel or chromium cobalt, are mainly alloys of iron and carbon whose characteristics are very variable and directly linked to their composition.

Chromium is frequently added in order to offer a good resistance to oxidation (stainless steel).

MERARD polishing compounds and buffing mops have been specifically developed to optimize manual and robotized polishing processes on these non-ferrous metals and for many markets.

The polishing of aluminum, chrome, titanium or zamak requires a specific know-how, well mastered by the polishers.

The quality of the polishing compound and the regularity of the buffing mop are key elements to obtain a perfect shine, a surface roughness close to zero, and an optimal process productivity.

The composition of MERARD buffing mops and pastes is jointly developed in our workshops in France, according to each surface.
