What is Buffing?
“Buffing” refers to the removal of thin layers of paint (or clear coat) from an (automotive) finish, with the goal of defect removal. Buffing is synonymous with compounding and cutting. Buffing is the first machining step in a proper 3-Stage Cut & Polish service. Buffing differs from polishing, in the way that buffing is used to fix more heavy paint defects such as scratches, heavy swirl marks, etching, oxidization, etc, where as polishing is used for dialing in the last percentiles of perfection. By precisely removing thin layers of clear or paint, we are able to reveal a uniform defect free finish. The science of buffing is similar to the process of cutting grass. The mechanism that actually “cuts“ paint is a a variation of chemicals, particle abrasives, pad, and machine rotation speed and force. Buffing must always be followed up by a polish in order to produce a hologram free result.

16 Hour 3-Stage Cut & Polish
This is one of our recent paint correction jobs. It required a heavy buffing in order to reduce orange peel and deep scratches that would not have been removed with polishing alone. We used a combination of wool and foam pads paired with aggressive cutting compounds.
