Polishing pads are designed to be used in conjunction with a machine polisher in order to apply liquid compound to a surface. When machine polishing your paintwork, choosing the right car polishing pads is key. The stiffness of a foam polishing pad will have a different effect on the paintwork surface, the heavier the cut, the more abrasive the pad will be. We have a range of pads from coarse to ultra fine as well as wool pads and those specifically made for glass surfaces. 

After multiple use, polishing pads can get very dirty. They can become full of polish residue, oils, small paint particles, and often dirt particles and mineral deposits. It is important to clean polishing pads properly in order to maintain them and keep their performance levels high. In order to maintain your pads and get the most out of them, we have a range of polishing pad accessories. From pad brushes to claw pad tools that help you to remove a polishing pad from its backing plate safely and quickly. 

The Slim’s Pad Conditioning Brush For Foam Pads is a cleverly designed brush that allows you to clean and recondition foam buffing pads, keeping your pads in premium shape. Designed specifically to clean and preserve foam pads, the ergonomic shape makes it easy to apply to any high-quality pad whilst tough construction helps stand up to constant use in your busy shop.

The Rupes Bigfoot Claw Pad Tool is a must-have pad cleaning and removal tool for any detailing pro or enthusiast. An innovative design, it features two separate functional ends: The brush head and the wedge. The brush head can be used to clean foam, microfiber or short pile wool pads while still on the machine. Its semi-rigid nylon bristles are designed to dislodge dried compound residues from the pads without causing damage. This ensures that operators can maintain optimal efficiency in their buffing process. The other end, features an innovative wedge, used to create separation between the hook and loop attachment point for pad removal, thus eliminating the occurrence of accidental tears and damage to pads - when pulling them from the backing plate.
