Our very popular waffle style 150mm red foam finishing pad, with 'hook and loop' velcro backing, made from 90ppi foam. The waffle (or 'eggshell') design reduces the chance of pad ‘sling’ (splatter), increases polish distribution on the panel and can also help lower polishing temperatures.
If you're unsure what light polishing or finishing foam to get, this is a great starting point. The Peak Finish pad offers great performance and great value for money - plus you'll never go wrong opting for a softer pad (it's better to have too little cut than too much!).
Suits 120mm-130mm (5 inch) backing plates, to allow for a safe overhang (to keep the backing plate edge away from paintwork during polishing).
For orbital and rotary machine polishers.
Always run pads with suitable polishes/compounds; never overwork them by running them too dry, too long or with a polish doing too much or too little work.
Please note that pads should never be run at excessive temperatures (either panel or machine temps), they should always be stopped/started on the panel if an orbital is used to avoid undue stress, and they should always be removed gently from the backing plate and washed carefully with mild detergent (NEVER left to soak). Failure to do so may cause premature delamination of the hook and loop backing from the pad.
To maintain, simply massage neat washing up liquid into the foam pad cutting face under a running tap, then rinse thoroughly and allow to air dry.
