The Lake Country 5 ½ Inch Thin Foamed Wool Pad is a heavy-cut pad optimized for use on a dual-action polisher. The Thin Foamed Wool Pads feature patented nanofoam particles at the base of the wool fibers allowing for maximum cut throughout the polishing cycle while minimizing heat transfer and preventing matting or tangling. Lake County Thin Foamed Wool Pads work great on rotary polishers as well.
Armed densely-packed, short-nap wool fibers, the Lake Country 5 ½ Inch Thin Foamed Wool Pad gives dual-action polishers such as the FLEX 3401 VRG, Porter Cable 7424 XP, and Rupes LHR 15ES a powerful polishing action that can quickly level severe defects. Wool pads have traditionally been used for heavy-duty polishing on rotary style polishers, but have some drawbacks when used with orbital machines. The wool is often too long and much of the orbital action is absorbed as the wool twists and tangles on itself.
Lake Country Thin Foamed Wool Pads feature a short-nap wool fiber that works perfectly with the orbital action of a dual-action polisher. Instead of laying flat and twisting, the short-nap wool produces an ideal level of cutting action. The densely-packed wool has a large surface area, allowing more polish to work at once, reducing polishing time. The patented nanofoam base works with the short nap, dense design keeps the wool fibers working through out the buffing cycle so you get results, fast.
Aggressive polishing creates friction, which in turn creates heat. Not only can excessive heat damage your paint, but it is the leading cause of backing plate failure. The Lake Country Thin Foamed Wool Pads promote airflow around and in between their wool fibers which whisks heat away and produces a smooth, cool polishing action. Use the Lake Country 5 ½ Thin Foamed Wool Pad on a Lake Country Flexible 5 inch DA Backing Plate and your favorite aggressive polish or compound to make quick work of severe paint defects.
Because the tightly packed, short-nap wool fibers create a cushion between the paint and the machine, rotary polisher users will love these pads as well. The Lake Country 5 ½ Thin Foamed Wool Pad produces an incredibly smooth polishing action that gives the user the ultimate in control. And because there is almost no fiber overhang, these pads allow the user to polish tight areas with complete confidence. Mount these pads to a Lake Country 4 ¾ inch Rotary Flexible Backing Plate or a Flex-Foam HD Rotary Backing Plate.
Unlike rough twisted-wool pads or aggressive open-celled foam pads, the Lake Country Thin Foamed Wool Pads features a soft wool fiber that produces a heavy cutting action while maintaining a high-gloss finish. Combined with the anti-matting ability of the nanofoam particles, the Lake Country Thin Foamed Wool Pads will finish like a foam polishing pad.
