CCS stands for
Collapsed Cell Structure.
Technology is Lake Country’s innovative pad
design that saves product by controlling product release onto the work
surface. Dozens of dimples in the foam collect excess polish and reserve it
until it is needed on the pad’s face (the area that is in contact with the
paint). This design prolongs your working time and reduces product waste.
CCS Smart Pads™ work on every type
of paint, from conventional clear coats to the harder, scratch-resistant
clear coats used by Mercedes Benz and the Ford Motor Company. Lake Country's
range of foam compositions, combined with the right chemicals provides you
with a prescription to correct almost any paint imperfection on any paint
What are the
benefits of CCS Technology?
Slows rate of polish absorption
– As discussed above, the pads are slow to absorb products and therefore the
paint benefits from a longer working time. The same is true of liquid waxes
Improves operator control –
CCS pockets gradually release polish as needed by the operator. Since these
areas are not absorbing polish, they serve as little reservoirs until the
excess polish is needed.
Prevents pad skipping – CCS
pockets reduce surface tension allowing the operator to run pad flat on a
working surface. Basically, the CCS pockets break up the smooth surface of
the foam to eliminate the sticking and skipping that occurs when two
perfectly flat surfaces meet.
Creates less heat – CCS
pockets provide several points where the foam is not completely
touching the paint. This reduces friction and therefore heat generated
between the pad and the paint.
OEM approved - OEM tests
confirm CCS pads out-perform convoluted pad designs.
CCS foam pads provide ample surface
contact to effectively work the paint. The CCS pockets are small so they
don't affect the amount of foam continuously touching the paint during
CCS Smart Pads 5.5 inch Professional Foam Pads give you maximum
maneuverability on your dual action polisher. Large foam pads tend to
bog down DA polishers, like the Porter Cable 7424 XP. That’s why 6.5 inch pads
are the recommended size, but we’ve streamlined the dual action buffing pad
even more with the CCS Smart Pads™ Dual Action 5.5 inch Professional Foam
Pads. These compact pads give the dual orbiting head even greater freedom of
motion to help you work efficiently and effectively.
The CCS 5.5 inch Foam Pads are
also a perfect fit on orbital air sanders with a 5 inch backing plate.
