Lake Country 3 inch Flat Foam Pads are constructed of unique urethane foam formulations that outperform and outlast other foam pads on the market. These flat foam pads provide full surface contact with the paint to ensure optimum coverage of products.
Each pad has a curved edge to allow an easier transition from flat to vertical surfaces. Hook and loop fasteners cover the entire back of each pad to provide a secure hold on the backing plate.
Lake Country 3 inch Flat Foam Pads are smaller and thinner than the typical 4, 5.5 and 6.5 inch dual action foam pads. The compact size of these pads is preferred by some users who want more correction ability on harder paints. Slimmer, smaller pads are more agile on a dual action polisher and can give the operator more control.
We suggest using these smaller pads with a dual action polisher equipped with a 3 inch flexible backing plate.
|Yellow Cutting 3 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 older finishes. Always follow this pad with an orange or white pad and a fine polish to refine the paint until it is smooth.
|Orange Light Cutting 3 inch Foam Pad
Firm, high density foam for scratch and defect removal. Use this pad with polishes and swirl removers. It’s an all around pad that will work on most light to moderate imperfections.
|Pink Cutting/Polishing 3 inch Foam Pad
This foam is of medium density with the ability to level very fine scratches and very light oxidation. Use light swirl removers with this pad.
|White Polishing 3 inch Foam Pad
Less dense foam formula for the application of waxes, micro-fine polishes and sealants. This pad has very light cutting power so its perfect for pre-wax cleaners.
|Black Finishing 3 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 3 inch Foam Pad
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.
|Red Ultrasoft Wax/Sealant 3 inch Foam Pad
This soft, imported foam is ideal for applying the final coat of wax or sealant. The foam works especially well when applying liquid waxes or sealants because it is firm enough to keep the majority of the product on the paint, rather than soaking it up. The red foam has no cut or cleaning ability.
Clean pads using McKee's 37 Polishing Pad Rejuvenator. It's a concentrate that breaks up residues in the pad and rinses clean.
