Buffing

As an extension to Rubberlite’s expertise for converting tight thickness-specification materials, our buffing process utilizes an industrial abrasive cylinder to produce a clean and accurate surface profile. When dimensional tolerances are critical for precision parts, this value-added service affords repeatable and reliable conformance to your specification.
