Zinc die castings are notorious for porosity and the variety of shapes which call for special buffing considerations.

Zinc should be cut buffed with Tripoli compounds and bias airway or pleated buffing wheels designed with special dip and mill treated products developed by JacksonLea.

A good coloring operation following up cut buffing of zinc helps present the work to the plating operation in the best possible form.
