The benefits of microfiber pads versus foam pads for compounding and polishing? It’s quite simple, actually. Microfiber pads are constructed of thousands of strands of microfiber and these fibers provide more cut because they’re actually a form of abrasive. Lake Country Ultra-Fiber Microfiber Pads take this concept a step further by utilizing microfiber loops that are more plush and more dense compared to other microfiber pads. These fibers are sewn closer together which means the Ultra-Fiber Microfiber Pads cut more, finish nicer, and more importantly, last longer.
