Polish Pads

Foam pads are slightly different from each other on the basis of how they’re constructed. Under a microscope, foam pads look like a bee’s honeycomb, small uniformly shaped cells. The smaller the cells the more densely the construction, this type of foam pad would be considered less aggressive, thus it would be considered a finishing pad. The opposite effect takes place if the foam cells were larger, or less dense. This construction will cause the foam pad to be more aggressive, as in a compounding pad. There are various grades of foam pads on either side of the aggressive or finishing scale. We have several grades of foam pads; each represented by a different color. Early on, foam buffing pad colors were standardized, however, more colors were added to the mix and now there is a broad band or examples. Yellow, black and white are the most common colors across the board; however, our own range of colors has expanded to include orange and blue. We make many different size and configurations of foam buffing pads, ranging from 3” to 8”. Choose from our recognized hex face, waffle or standard flat faced foam pads. No job is too big or to small; we have the right selection and top quality. All of our pads are made of high strength reticulated foam. In other words, the cells are open; this allows air to flow through the foam. Chemical compounds and polishes require the right amount of air flow through the foam. Open cell foam is ideal for this process and provides top quality OEM results.
