Purui’s Flannel Buffing Wheels are made of 100% fine-grade bleached double-napped cotton cloth, which is called flannel. Ultra soft characteristics of flannel make the flannel buffing wheel great for final high mirror finishing on jewellers and metals such as Aluminum, brass, alloy and stainless steel. The edge of the flannel buffing wheels are raked, making the buffs softer and holding the polishing compound well.
