To ensure your project has the perfect finish, we offer a range of edge polishing facilities including Diamond Polishing, Flame Polishing, Buff Polishing, and Hand Polishing.
The material to be polished is loaded onto the feed track of the machine. The feed system guides it over a rotating diamond tipped cutter hub, which removes a small amount from the edge of the material. The combination of machine accuracy and cutter geometry can convert a sawn edge to a mirror polish in one operation.
Flame polishing units use electrolyte fluid to generate gas which fuels a flame at the end of a fine nozzle. When the flame comes into contact with a rough thermoplastic surface, it fuses the surface faces together, producing a polished edge.
Buff polishing creates a smooth near-mirror uniform surface for decorative parts. Polishing is done on the edge of a cloth buff wheel, typically about 6" diameter and hence the process can only reach certain surfaces. Edges often become slightly rounded. Buff polishing may not be effective on parts with sharp, intricate, recessed or fragile features. Many plastic materials can be buff polished.
By using a few simple techniques, along with Novus 1; Plastic Clean & Shine, Novus 2; Fine Scratch Remover & Novus 3; Heavy Scratch Remover, you can actually add life to plastic and keep it looking new. Best of all, you don't have to be a pro to get professional results. Try these polishes and you'll see why manufacturers of plastic/acrylic products have used and recommended Novus polishes for years.
