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. 

Foam polishing pads are most commonly used in the detailing industry. They come in many different grades, colours, and sizes to fit every type of machine polisher out there. A coarse or heavy cut pad is able to refine deep to medium scratches in the surface of your paintwork. A medium cut pad will work on medium scratches whilst a fine cut pad will work on fine scratches. A micro-cut or ultra-fine cut pad will work on super fine scratches as well as holograms on the surface. We recommend always starting with a medium or fine pad, you will then know whether a coarser pad is needed.
