Lake Country buffing pads is at the top of their game! If you know anything about foam polishing pads, you’re no doubt familiar with this company. They’ve been designing and manufacturing polisher accessories since 1977 and we’d be willing to bet they know a thing or two about car care. In fact, we’re so confident in their expertise, Max enlisted their help to design pads for Palm Beach Motoring Accessories.
Smart Pads™ Professional Foam Pads are a combination of premium materials and intelligent design. The foam is imported from Germany, where surface enhancement technology is flourishing. It’s smart because it compensates for some of the common pitfalls of machine polishing, i.e. pad separation, burning, and gauging. These pads stay firmly bonded to the VELCRO® brand fasteners to ensure your pad stays put as you polish. The density of the foam minimizes the transfer of heat and friction while features like a raised lip and curved edge help prevent contact between the paint and the backing plate.
In the fall of 2006, Lake Country manufacturing introduced CCS Technology. CCS stands for Closed Cell Structures. These are pockets of closed foam, where products are less apt to soak into the foam. The CCS pockets act like small reservoirs for excess polish or wax. When more product is needed on the pad’s work surface, it is drawn up a center column of open-cell foam within each pocket and distributed back onto the work surface. CCS Technology prevents polishing foam pads from drying out and reduces product waste. We incorporated the Lake Country Mfg. CCS Technology into Smart Pads™ to create the best combination of pad design and foam composition available.
Lake Country Smart Pads™ are available in 4 inch, 5.5 inch, 6.5 inch dual action pads for dual action polishers, and 7.5 inch and 8.5 inch curved edge pads for rotary polishers. The 7.5 inch pads may also be used with dual action polisher with a 6” backing plate. Choose from five different “cuts”, referring to the ability of the pad to level the clear coat. More aggressive pads will be able to remove or diminish swirls and scratches while softer foam is suitable for wax or sealant application. Access your vehicle’s needs before selecting pads.
