Foam™ 6.5 inch Buffing Pads maximize your detailing efforts to create shinier, smoother
paint with less work! The Cross Groove design provides smoother, neater
application of polishes and waxes to achieve flawless results on all types of
paint. Eliminate splatter, reduce product waste, reduce heat build-up, and enjoy

|With the innovative Cross Groove
design, Cobra Cross Groove Flex Foam™ 6.5 inch Buffing Pads work hard to
eliminate paint imperfections while maximizing gloss. The polishing
pads’ groove design reduces surface tension, retains more product,
minimizes heat buildup, and overall maximizes your polishing results.
Cobra Cross Groove Flex Foam™ 6.5 inch Buffing Pads
are precision made for use with a dual action polisher. The German foam
compositions are each engineered to tackle specific paint imperfections
using just the right balance of “cut” and finesse to remove
imperfections and maximize gloss.
The Cross Groove design
channels excess polish into the grooves until it is needed on the work
All Cobra Cross Groove™ 6.5 Inch
Flex Foam Buffing Pads have these user-friendly features:
Tough reticulated German foam
– Not all foam is made equal. This imported German polyurethane foam holds
up better to the rigors of polishing and swirl removal than typical domestic
foam compositions. The dense, open cell foam resists tearing and minimizes
the transfer of heat from the polisher to the paint.
Breaks surface tension – One
flat surface pressed against another flat surface produces a phenomenon
known as surface tension. The cross groove pattern breaks this surface
tension which allows the pad to glide easily over the paint without
skipping. This smooth performance ensures uniform product coverage and
minimizes the risk of holograms.
Foam” surface – The Cross Groove Flex Foam™ design creates hills and
valleys in the foam. On the curves and contours of your vehicle, the
“hills” provide more point of contact with the paint than a flat pad.
Each of the peaks of foam adjusts individually to your vehicle’s surface
to provide maximum surface contact on all body panels, not just the flat
The dense foam bends to
conform to the curves of your vehicle.
Reduces product waste – The
foam pad’s grooves serve as reservoirs for excess polish. This benefits you
in two ways: First, the grooves hold extra polish to prevent splatter.
Second, the grooves minimize product waste by holding the excess polish
until you need it. When more polish is needed, simply press lightly on the
Beveled Edge – Unlike
perfectly flat pads, the Cobra Cross Groove Flex Foam™ Pads have a beveled edge
that allows you to work the polisher at a slight angle if needed. For
example, you can cut in close to mirrors using the polisher at a subtle tilt
or you can carefully polish concave panels. * Attempt this only if you’re
using a 5 inch backing plate.
build-up – The Cross Groove design allows air to flow through the
pad as it orbits on the polisher. The grooves are cut from one side of
the pad to the other, allowing heat to escape from underneath the pad.
This self-cooling feature virtually eliminates the risk of burning the
paint with the polisher.
storage bags – Each Cross Groove Foam Buffing Pad comes in its own
reusable plastic storage bag. To keep foam pads clean and dry, we
recommend storing the clean pads in these bags when not in use.
The Cross Groove design
allows air to flow through the pad, thereby reducing heat build-up.
Cobra Cross Groove™ 6.5 Inch Flex
Foam Buffing Pads should be used with a 5 inch Dual Action Hook & Loop
Flexible Backing Plate to provide a margin of protection around the edge of
the plate. If you tilt the polisher, the ¾ inch edge of foam will help
buffer the paint against accidental contact with the backing plate.
The Cobra Cross Groove™ 6.5 Inch
Flex Foam Buffing Pads are available in five foam varieties:
Light Cutting 6.5 inch Foam Pad
This orange pad is
designed for polishes, swirl removers, and micro fine compounds. It is
suitable for repair or swirl marks, water spots, light to moderate oxidation
and minor scratches.
Polishing 6.5 inch Foam Pad
This white pad
polishes the paint using pre-wax cleaners, cleaner waxes, and finishing
polishes. This dense pad provides even product application and very light
cleaning ability The white foam lightly polishes the paint without abrading
clear coat or single stages.
Finishing 6.5 inch Foam Pad
This gray pad is
designed for applying glazes, waxes and sealants. The composition is firm
enough to remove buffer swirls but soft enough to gently apply nonabrasive
products on all types of paint.
Final Finishing 6.5 inch Foam Pad
This blue pad is
designed for applying liquid waxes, sealants, and finishing glazes. The
soft, absorbent foam will not scratch clear coated or single stage paint
LSP Finishing 6.5 inch Foam Pad
pad is ideal for applying the final coat of wax or sealant. The foam works
particularly well when applying liquid waxes or sealants because it is firm
enough to keep the majority of the product on the paint, rather than soaking
it up. The red foam has no cut or cleaning ability.
All Cobra Cross Groove
Flex Foam™ 6.5 Inch Buffing Pads work with hook and loop backing plates. Hook and
loop fasteners cover the backside of each pad from edge to edge to provide
maximum surface contact with your backing plate. This firm hold will prevent
the pad flying off or shifting during operation. We recommend using a 5
inch Flexible Backing Plate with the 6.5 inch pads.
Cobra Cross Groove Flex
Foam™ 6.5 Inch Buffing Pads give you performance, precision, and flexibility to tackle
your toughest detailing challenges. Compare them to standard flat polishing
pads and see why the Cross Groove™ is simply better.
Pad Care: Wash foam pads in a
mixture of DP Polishing Pad Rejuvenator and water. Soak the pads for up to 15
minutes and agitate with a Foam Conditioning Brush if needed. Rinse and lay
flat to dry. Lay the pads foam down on a clean surface to allow water to
drain away from the hook and loop adhesive. Store pads in their resealable

I bought these pads because I needed some "white" polishing pads. I initially used them with a 6" backing plate, but found that they actually work best with a 5" backing plate in order to put pressure on them when used with the DA.
These pads have beveled edges as well as cross grooves, which allow them to work EXTREMELY well with the rotary. There's virtually no pad hopping or jumping when used with the rotary. These pads work better on the rotary than on the DA. Period. I wonder why Autogeek hasn't list this item on their rotary pads sales page.
Be warned, however, that these pads are not of the same foam material as the Lake Country pads.
