Mechanical Polishing

Mechanical Polishing is a manual process where the part is sanded, and then buffed on a set of abrasive wheels or rouges to achieve the desired surface finish. This is a subtractive process that removes defects from parts, including scratches, pits, and burrs. Polishing is suitable for seal performance, boosting the aesthetics of a part and other aesthetic applications.
