Constant Pressure Technology helps ensure uniform results with your polisher.
Lake Country Constant Pressure Technology Flat Pads make it easier to achieve a smooth, even paint finish with your polisher. With Constant Pressure Technology, the pad compensates for off-axis movements. The pad stays parallel to the paint, even if the polisher is not. Lake Country Constant Pressure Technology Flat Pads are terrific for beginners and enjoyed by many seasoned detailers.
Many detailers like using the 5.5 inch pads on dual action polishers because they are thinner and less bulky than the 6.5 pads. They can also be used for small repair areas with a rotary polisher.
Lake Country Constant Pressure Technology Flat Pads have these benefits:
Constant Pressure foam. The blue foam layer on each pad is specially designed to absorb off-axis movements of the polisher to allow the pad to maintain constant pressure on the paint. If you tilt your polisher slightly, the pad adjusts to spread the uneven pressure evenly over the whole pad. The blue layer of each pad is made of instant rebound foam. The blue Constant Pressure foam is behind the work surface foam, so it doesn't affect the cut of the pad.
Flat foam. The Constant Pressure Flat Pads are designed to provide maximum contact with the paint. Each pad has a flat, smooth work surface intended to rest flat against the paint.
Curved outer edge. The edge of each pad is rounded which allows easy transitions over seams and inclines of vehicles without snagging. If you tilt the polisher, you'll touch the paint with a gentle curved edge as opposed to a blunt edge. The curved edge helps prevent marring on curves and concave panels.
Recessed hook and loop backing. Many pads feature hook and loop fasteners from edge to edge to ensure a secure hold. On Constant Pressure Pads, the backing material is 3/8 inch from the edge of the pad. The hook and loop fastener material is coarse and could mar the paint if the user cuts in too close by a vertical panel. For less experienced users, the recessed hook and loop backing is an added safety measure to prevent scratching.
Choose from many different foam compositions to get the desired results. Lake Country manufactures some of the industry's finest foams.
To use the Lake Country Constant Pressure Technology 5.5 Inch Flat Pads, you will need a 5 Inch Dual Action Flexible Backing Plate for dual action polishers or a 4 3/4 Inch Rotary Backing Plate.
