Lake Country 5 1/2 inch Flat Foam Pads
A curved edge rounds out the features of these pads!
Lake Country 5 1/2 x 7/8 inch Flat Foam Pads are a new take on a classic buffing pad. Lake Country's flat 6.5 inch foam pads set the standard for dual action buffing pads. Now they're available in these smaller, slimmer 5 1/2 x 7/8 inch pads. Lake Country 5 1/2 x 7/8 inch Flat Foam Pads have the flat, full contact face and curved edge that made the original pads so popular but their slim size opens up new possibilities.
Since the advent of hard, scratch-resistant clear coats, a growing number of detailers prefer to use smaller 5 1/2 inch pads on their dual action polishers. The thinner, compact pads allow the polisher to work more efficiently by keeping the pad moving under pressure. The thinner pads can also give the operator more of a feel for the pad's motion. The size of Lake Country 5 1/2 x 7/8 inch Flat Foam Pads make them an ideal choice for swirl removal on all paints, particularly hard clear coats.
Lake Country 5 1/2 x 7/8 inch Flat Foam Pads are made of imported German foam that reduces heat build-up and spontaneous heat transfer between the machine and the pad. More pad-to-paint contact allows you to work more efficiently to get the desired results. The beveled edge lessens the risk of cookie-cutting because there are no stiff edges to dig into the paint if you accidentally tilt the polisher. Polish safely and effectively with Lake Country 5 1/2 x 7/8 inch Flat Foam Pads.
Lake Country 5 1/2 x 7/8 inch Flat Foam Pads are available in the following varieties:
Yellow Cutting Flat 5.5 inch Foam Pad - Use this pad to apply compounds or polishes to remove severe oxidation, swirls, and scratches. It is the most aggressive and should only be used on oxidized and heavily swirled finishes. Always follow this pad with a white or gray pad and a fine polish to refine the paint until it is smooth.
Orange Light Cutting Flat 5.5 inch Foam Pad - Firm, high density foam for scratch and defect removal. Use this pad with polishes and swirl removers. Itís an all around pad that will work on most light to moderate imperfections.
White Polishing Flat 5.5 inch Foam Pad - Less dense foam formula for the application of cleaner waxes, one step polishes, or "all in one" type products. This pad has very light cutting power, so it's perfect for pre-wax cleaners.
Black Finishing Flat 5.5 inch Foam Pad - Composition is firm enough to withstand added pressure during final finishing to remove buffer swirls. It has no cut and will apply thin, even coats of waxes, sealants, and glazes.
Blue Finessing Flat 5.5 inch Foam Pad Ė Flat pad has soft composition for applying glaze, finishing polish, sealants, and liquid waxes. Flat pad provides full contact with paint surface to minimize the pressure applied by the user.
For optimum results, itís best to own each type of pad. Compounding with a yellow or orange pad may leave a light haze. You will need the white or black pad to refine the paint to its original shine and texture. The blue pad will then give you a uniform wax application.
We suggest using these smaller pads with a dual action polisher equipped with a 5 inch flexible backing plate for safe yet effective polishing.
With their curved edges and flat, full contact surface, Lake Country 5 1/2 x 7/8 inch Flat Foam Pads give you the size and maneuverability to bring out the best in your paint finish.
