These are fantastic applicators. I skipped over purchasing these for a very long time because I thought it would be similar to the Dodo Juice finger applicators. I'm happy to say that I was VERY wrong. These are much denser and quite a bit larger. The foam does not soak through as quickly. It holds the product on the face of the pad much better, so that you can actually use liquid products with it.
This foam is very similar if not the same material as the yellow round applicators (which are a favorite). These excel for products that are very sticky upon application and spreading. They help you get a good grip on the applicator without wearing out your thumb and index finger. I have since used them with pinnacle paint sealant and surface coating. For spray on products like the coating they also work very well. Its easy to tell when more product is needed and when the surface gets grippy.
Now, like any other product you really need to use common sense. If you have very large hands and your four fingers dont easily fit inside the applicator dont force them. use 3 fingers instead. If you insist on jamming too much into them you could probably expect the edge to rip. and once that happens the applicator is likely going to come apart. As long as you understand that, you should have no issues. If the applicators were rip proof they probably wouldn't be paint safe on the sides (because of a glued or stitched edge).
