Title (EN) FOAM BUFFING PAD AND METHOD OF MANUFACTURE THEREOF
(FR) TAMPON DE LUSTRAGE EN MOUSSE ET PROCEDE DE FABRICATION
Abstract:
(EN) A rotary foam buffing pad (10) is provided with a concave working face which allows the operator to provide true graduated surface contact in applying polish, buffing or glazing compounds, while containing the polishing compound against centrifugal force which would otherwise result in splattering of the compound. The manner in which the concave working face (17) is formed and in which the edge face (20) is formed and dressed results in dynamic balancing of the pad and reducing vibration and operator fatigue. The working surface forming and pad finishing operations further provide a velvetized texture to the pad working surfaces (17) which further enhances the polishing or finishing process.
(FR) Cette invention concerne un tampon de lustrage (10) rotatif et en mousse, lequel possède une surface de travail concave qui permet à l'opérateur d'obtenir un contact de surface véritablement progressif lors de l'application de composés de polissage, de lustrage ou de vitrification. Ce tampon permet également de retenir le composé de polissage contre la force centrifuge de manière à éviter tout éclaboussement. La manière dont la surface de travail concave (17) est formée et dont la face latérale (20) est formée et habillée permet d'équilibrer le tampon de manière dynamique, et de réduire ainsi les vibrations ainsi que la fatigue de l'opérateur. Les opérations de mise en forme de la surface de travail et de finition du tampon confèrent en outre une texture veloutée auxdites surfaces de travail (17), ce qui permet d'améliorer les processus de polissage et de finition.
