Tripoli is a cutting compound for general purpose cutting work on copper, aluminium and most metals. It achieves the best results when used with a Stitched Rag Buff. Cutting refers to removing light scratch marks, and it is suggested to follow up with a polishing combination after to refine the finish.
Brumby Tripoli Cutting Compound is best used as a general
purpose cutting compound for copper, brass, aluminium and most metals, and is for use with a Josco Stitched Rag or Loose Leaf Calico Polishing Buff.
It is important to recognise that different metals have varying characteristics which require the correct buff and compound to be used when working on your surface material. For best results, only apply a small amount of compound at a time. It is better to apply small amounts of compound frequently rather than overdressing the buff.

- Size: Standard
- Colour: Brown
Directions for use:
- Most buffs have a tapered centre bore, and
maybe mounted on the left or right of your
grinder using a tapered spindle.
- Select the correct buffs and compounds
for your job. Initial cutting can be done with a
fast-cut compound and either a stitched sisal
or a stitched rag buff followed by a polishing
compound and a loose-leaf buff. For best
results, never use different compounds on
the one buff – keep a separate buff for each
- Apply the compound across the face of the
rotating buff for a few seconds, taking care
not to apply too much compound which will
overload the buff. It is far better to apply a little
compound more frequently than to overdress
- After applying the compound to the buff,
bring the workpiece into contact with the buff
and with light pressure, move back and forth
across the job.
- After polishing, remove any compound
the residue left on the workpiece with mineral
turpentine or methylated spirits, or warm soapy
