Rotary polishers, also known as circular polishers, provide more power and can therefore accommodate larger pads, allowing you to cover more area with each pass. These pads are compatible with most rotary buffers including the Makita 9227C, DeWalt Variable Speed Polisher, Craftsman Professional Sander/Polisher 11506, Vector WaxxPro Circular Polisher VEC-236, and the Coleman Powermate 7 Inch Sander/Polisher PMB7284.
Lake Country offers a wide variety of pad compositions in both 7.5 inch and 8.5 inch sizes for your rotary polisher. The 7.5 inch pads should be used with a 6 inch hook and loop rotary backing plates, and the 8.5 inch pads should be used with a 7 inch hook and loop rotary backing plate. When the proper pad and backing plate combination is used to polish your vehicle, you will notice a protective lip of foam that hangs over the edge of the backing plate. This offers added protection against accidental contact between your paint and your backing plate. For spot polishing, use Spot Buffs 4 Inch Pads or Lake Country 4 Inch Low Profile Pads. These pads should be used with a 2 ¾ inch rotary backing plate or 3 ¾ inch rotary backing plate.
The many foam compositions available for your rotary polisher ensure that you will have the perfect pad for any polishing project. The dimpled faces of Lake Country’s most popular CCS pads help dissipate heat, providing you with more consistent results with decreased risk of accidental burn through. For added value, consider purchasing your pads in one of our foam pad kits, like the Advanced Curved Edge 7.5” CCS Foam Pad Kit at a significant savings.
