The perfect marriage of wool and foam pads.
Foamed Wool 5.5 inch Buffing/Polishing Pads feature patented nanofoam particles that encapsulate the base of the wool fibers to help prevent caking and matting. These manufactured Foamed Wool pads polish like a wool pad but finish like a foam pad, giving your vehicle’s paint the best qualities of each.
Natural wool pads have a tendency to become frayed, matted, and begin linting. The deterioration of a wool pad results in a pad that provides less cushion between the buffer and the paint, and the matted wool poses a greater risk of scratching the paint.
Lake Country’s Foamed Wool is a patented process whereby microscopic polyfoam particles encapsulate the base of the wool pad. You can feel how the wool is tighter and denser than a regular wool pad. This enables the Foamed Wool 5.5 inch Buffing/Polishing Pads to stand up to the stress of polishing better with less caking and matting and better results. The Foamed Wool encapsulation process locks the lambswool fibers in place to significantly reduce linting. The paint surface will stay cleaner as you work with less to clean up when you’re finished detailing.
Foamed Wool also creates tiny air pockets at the base of the wool fibers. This is essentially trapped air that improves the cushioning provided by the pad and the retention of compounds and polishes. Just like the cells of foam absorb products, these minute air pockets retain products so none is wasted.
All these features are great, but we know you’re really concerned about performance. Foamed Wool 7 inch Buffing/Polishing Pads are capable of removing 1500 grit scratches, leaving a smooth finish with no hazing and few, if any, compounding swirls. These pads finish more like a foam pad than a wool pad so you have to do less finishing work to get a perfect shine.
Lake Country’s Foamed Wool 5.5 inch Buffing/Polishing Pads are manufactured for consistency and quality. Natural wool has a lot of variances and this can lead to inconsistent pad performance. That will never be a problem with the Foamed Wool 5.5 inch Buffing/Polishing Pads.
These pads are recommended for dual action and circular (rotary) buffers. We recommend the 4 3/4 inch Hook & Loop Rotary Flexible Backing Plate or Dual Action Hook & Loop Flexible 5 inch Backing Plate for this 5.5 inch pad.
To wash Foamed Wool Pads, dissolve 1 scoop of McKee's 37 Polishing Pad Rejuvenator in 3-4 gallons of water. Soak used pads for up to 15 minutes and use a brush to agitate if needed. Rinse and air dry face down to allow the water to drain away from the hook & loop backing.
Wool encapsulated in nanofoam particles gives you results like you’ve never seen before with a conventional wool pad. Foamed Wool 5.5 inch Buffing/Polishing Pads from Lake Country use the modern technology of foam to bring the wool pad to a whole new level of performance.
