5 Pack Uber Foam Buffing Pads 5.5 inch

Uber Foam Buffing Pads

We have been selling foam buffing pads for some time now as well as using them on our personal and customers' cars. Even though I detail cars quite often I find myself asking: what pad, what color, and what product from time to time.

In an effort to better the product and more aptly serve my clients I added the following guidelines to the back of the pads.

The Uber Foam Pads now have the step (medium polish/polish/final polish/wax/sealant) stamped on the back of it.

Orange pad = medium polish (European Foam)

Green pad = polish (60 PPI)

Blue pad = glaze or final polish (70 PPI)

Black pad = glaze/wax/sealant (80 PPI)

The other benefits to the Uber Foam Pads are highlighted below.

VELCRO TRIM

We have taken the extra step to evenly trim the Velcro loop back from the outer edge of the pad to prevent accidental contact with the paint that could cause $100's or possibly $1000's in damages. Check our enclosed sample against your current stock.

CRAFTSMANSHIP

Our pads our consistently crisply and cleanly cut. The side walls of the pad are perfectly straight down on every pad.Check your current pads and you will find inconsistent concave sidewalls. This is due to incorrect cutting procedures. You will find every pad will look different.  CONSISTENT QUALITY!

ADHESIVE

A common problem with Velcro pads is the Velcro peeling off. We are using an adhesive that will never come off -ever. It is heat resistant, chemical resistant and 100% fully washable for multiple uses. There is no better value!

Helpful Hints and Tips:

Unlike wool pads, there are no blended foam buffing pads. Foam pads are 100% foam, but they perform slightly different from each other on the basis of how they're constructed. Under a microscope, foam pads look like a bee's honeycomb, small uniformly shaped cells. The smaller the cells the more densely the construction, this type of foam pad would be considered less aggressive, thus it would be considered a finishing pad. The opposite effect takes place if the foam cells were larger, or less dense. This construction will cause the foam pad to be more aggressive, as in a compounding pad.

There are various grades of foam pads on either side of the aggressive or finishing scale. We make up to 4 grades of foam pads; each represented by a different color. Early on, foam buffing pad colors were standardized, however,more colors were added to the mix and now there is a broad band or examples.

All of our pads are made of high strength reticulated foam. In other words, the cells are open; this allows air to flow through the foam. Chemical compounds and polishes require the right amount of air flow through the foam. Open cell foam is ideal for this process to succeed. Not only is closed cell foam not ideal, it is weaker structurally.

Outstanding
  These pads are outstanding. I purposefully changed the backing plate on my polisher to accommodate 5.5" pads. These pads are the perfect size, they last through multiple uses, and are the only ones I buy.

great product
  I have two sets of these for my PC and I absolutely love these pads. I can't compare to much as I'm really new to paint correction, but these work well and clean up easily.

Great pads & Great pricing
  I can't find anything bad to say about these pads. They are cut perfectly and the velcro backing is recessed just enough to make sure your pads are centered correctly and keep the velcro from touching the paint. The labeling on the back is a nice touch as well, so that you don't forget which pad is for what. Durability seems to be pretty good as well, i've used some of these pads over 10 times with no obvious signs of wear.

Great Pads
  These Uber pads work extremely well with my PC7424 (old version).My PC7424 seems works so much better with these verses the 6" or 6.5" pads I had before. Great pads, easy to clean, am very impressed. I can see why so many folks like these pads so much!

Awesome deal!
  I have to be honest and say these are actually the only pads I've ever used, so I don't have much to compare them to. The orange ones seemed to have some slight torsional tearing along the lip where it attaches to the hook'n'loop pad after one use, but the rest of the pads held up really well. I plan on buying these until I hear about something else that is worth trying, or these fail to perform to my expectations.
