Item Description:

CarPro continues their reputation for innovation with the CarPro Denim Orange Peel Removal Pad. Orange Peel is used to describe paint that has a bumpy texture which resembles the skin of an orange. Removing orange peel previously required an aggressive sanding of the paint using several grits of sandpaper followed by multiple polishing steps to remove the sanding scratches and restore gloss. The CarPro Denim Orange Peel Removal Pad combines the leveling ability of sandpaper with the polishing ability of a compound. It eliminates the bumpy texture from paint while polishing at the same time.

The CarPro Denim Orange Peel Removal Pad is one of two new pads designed to remove orange peel. The other pad- The CarPro Velvet Orange Peel Removal Pad- is less aggressive and ideal for thin, factory applied paint jobs. This pad, the Car Pro Denim Orange Peel Removal Pad, is rated at 2000 grit and quickly removes severe orange peel common on refinished paints. Either pad will polish the paint as it removes orange peel requiring only one or two additional polishing steps to create level paint that reflects accurately.

Achieving maximum gloss and having sharp reflections is a factory of the paint's smoothness. Orange peel greatly reduces your paint's ability to shine by deflecting, instead of reflecting, light. Your paint's reflections will appear dull, lifeless and blurry. Traditional orange peel removal requires sawing away the bumps with various grades of sand paper which creates a smooth matte finish riddled with scratches This requires many steps of compounding and polishing to restore gloss. When sanding paint you move backwards to move forward. The CarPro Denim Orange Peel Removal pad flattens orange peel without creating the need for additional sanding steps and multiple polishing steps. It allows you to continue to move forward towards a perfect shine.

Use the CarPro Denim Orange Peel Removal Pad with your favorite polishing compound on severely textured aftermarket paint jobs. This is an aggressive, professional grade tool which requires knowledge of paint systems and advanced paint correction techniques to use effectively. CarPro Denim Orange Peel Removal Pads measure 5.25 inches in diameter and feature a hook and loop backing for fast attachment to 5 inch backing plates. They are designed for rotary use only.

Works with multiple passes using DA
May 4, 2013
My car has an aftermarket paint job so orange peel was prevalent, some spots worse than others. I decided to try these Denim pads out on the trunk first, which had "medium" orange peel. Working half the trunk area so I could compare, it took me about three attempts with Menzerna 400 FG to start to see the leveling. I also tried it using Sonus Restore Polish and it seemed to wipe off easier and cut about the same. All this was on a DA as well. Bottom line, I didn't get it show room flat, but it's a definite improvement. Will continue on it later. Also, you'll need to clean the pads out about every two passes or so to keep it cutting like it's supposed to.
Pros:
Definitely cuts the orange peel down Probably faster on a rotary, but a DA will get it done
Cons:
Cakes up pretty fast, but it's workable

Don't expect miracles!

If you are attempting to remove some orange peel from, say, a two stage, base coat /clear coat paint job from a home job or a discount auto painter then these may be the ticket. However, if you are attempting to remove severe orange peel from a spray gun calibrated incorrectly or from cured, single-stage urethane paint then you had better prepare to sand. This pad, although described as "aggressive" is rated as equivalent to 2000 grit but it cuts more similar to 3000 grit used by hand. It may serve as a cutting tool as it may be the equal of a wool pad but if you purchase this thinking that it will totally eliminate wet sanding orange peel in every instance, then you are setting your sights far too highly.
Pros:
The pads seem to be durable and they are a hook and loop system. It can be used as a cutting pad in lieu of a foam bonnet as its cutting action/aggressiveness falls somewhere between a wool and foam pad.
Cons:
The "2000 grit" rating is a bit ambitious.
