Quality foam pads from one of the oldest names in automotive care.
Even though dual-action polishers are relatively easy to use and produce
beautiful results, they fall short of completely removing deep scratches and
swirls. For that you have to use a circular polisher. The high-speed,
concentrated motion wears down the clear coat to the lowest point of the blemish
so that it is level with the surrounding area. Novice detailers beware.
Because the use of circular polishers is limited to professionals and very
skilled hobbyists, accessories are often few and far between. Fortunately,
Meguiar’s makes a line of professional Soft Buff pads exclusively for
circular polishers. These pads come in three varieties to tackle every step of
the compounding process. Your circular polisher can be as gentle or as
aggressive as you prefer by just changing the pad.
All of the Meguiar’s Soft Buff Pads are made with an exclusive foam cell
structure that improves air flow. Heat generated by the friction of the pad can
escape through this porous structure, lessening the chance of burning the paint.
Great care should still be taken to prevent this permanent problem. These pads
also feature a quick-change Hook & Loop backing system that holds the pad
securely in place until you are ready to change it.
Burgundy Cutting Pad 8”- This pad is the most aggressive with moderate
cutting power. It will remove moderate swirls, scratches, and oxidation
without creating swirl marks like wool pads. Use with a swirl remover or
paint cleaner. This dense foam is safe for clear coats if properly used.
Yellow Polishing Pad 8”- This pad has mild cutting action and should be
used to apply polishes to newer vehicles. It removes minor surface
imperfections and restores an attractive luster to your paint. Use with a
mild swirl remover or fine polish. You can also use
it for wax application, but do not use the same pad for different products. This
pad is safe for clear coats.
Beige Finishing Pad 8”- This pad has no cutting or cleaning power
and is used to apply the final coat of protective wax or sealant. This soft
foam is gentle on paint and clear coats, and creates a high gloss shine without
swirl marks. Use with Wolfgang Deep Gloss Paint Protectant for a brilliant
While these pads attempt to minimize the risk involved with circular
polishers, you should still be an experienced operator or in the company of an
experienced detailer when using a circular polisher.
Use the Meguiar’s 6” backing plate with these pads.
