|High quality metal compounding pads by Lake Country.|
BLACKFIRE’s wool pads have been developed over the last decade by Lake Country Manufacturing for polishing and finishing bare metals, specifically aluminum. These innovative pads are widely used in the general aviation, aerospace, marine and RV industries at the OEM level. They are made to three different levels of "cut" or abrasiveness for use with BLACKFIRE metal polishes.
Level One Pads are BLACKFIRE’s most aggressive cutting pads. They are 50% twisted wool and 50% 60/40, twisted wool/acrylic blend. Twisting the fibers increases the pad’s cutting power. Use this pad with a pre-polish or heavy cut polish, such as BLACKFIRE Heavy Cut Aluminum Compound, to take weathered, oxidized, white-stained and spotted metal to a uniform, satin finish.
For the best results, this pad should be used with a rotary polisher with a 5 inch backing plate. Wool pads produce lint. Proper eye and clothing protection should be worn when polishing metals.
