From Custom to Automation Polishing Defined: In the metal finishing field the word polishing means to remove tool and die marks, parting lines, pits, scratches and other imperfections to acquire a smooth uniform surface. This is done by use of an abrasive belt incorporating different abrasive grit sizes to achieve the desired finish. This technique is used in de-burring of parts or to provide a Grain, Brush, or Satin finish.

Buffing and Color Buffing Defined: In the metal finishing field the word buffing means to produce a uniform high luster surface by means of a high speed flexible buff wheel charged with ultra fine grit bound in a grease base. When applied to the high-speed wheel is melts and distributes evenly over the surface. When a part is introduced into the wheel fine imperfections are removed and blended to provide a luster surface or mirror finish. If a higher luster is required color buffing is employed to brighten the surface.
