Lake Country Flat Dual Action Foam Pads were the original D.A. pads before the introduction of CCS technology. These flat pads provide full surface contact with the paint, and the same advanced foam compositions as all Lake Country pads. If you’re a fan of the original Lake Country Flat 6.5 inch Pads, take advantage of this very limited opportunity to stock up.
The Lake Country Mfg design team came
up with a way of improving upon the 6.5” foam pad – add more Velcro® brand
fasteners! The material goes almost the way to the edges of the pad to ensure
the most contact between the backing plate and the pad. This gives you the best
hold on the pad as you polish. Plus, the increased Velcro® brand hook & loop
material means you can use the 6.5” pads with 5” or 6” backing plate. You
can even use these pads on your rotary polisher because they accommodate a 6”
rotary plate. Our dual action pads are now suitable for both rotary and dual action buffers!
An advanced bonding system permanently attaches the hook & loop material to the
pad to prevent slipping and detachment. Advanced foam compositions and
user-friendly design will make your polishing experience safer for your vehicle
and easier for you.
Lake Country Flat Foam Pads are made of
imported German foam, and these 6.5” pads have been improved to feature a flat
surface. Lake Country pads reduce heat build-up and spontaneous heat transfer
between the machine and the pad. More pad-to-paint contact allows you to work
more efficiently than you could with variable contact pads. The old pads
required the user to apply more pressure in order to flatten the pad against the
paint. These new flat pads allow the machine to do all the work for you.
The Lake Country Dual Action 6.5” Pads are available in four types of foam:
Orange Light Cutting Foam 6.5"- Firm, high density foam for scratch and defect
removal. Use this pad with polishes and swirl removers. It’s an all around pad
that will work on most light to moderate imperfections.
White Flat Polishing Foam 6.5"- High absorption foam formula for the application
of waxes, micro-fine polishes and sealants. This pad has very light cutting
power so its perfect for pre-wax cleaners.
Black Finishing Foam 6.5" - Composition is firm enough to withstand added
pressure during final finishing to remove buffer swirls. It has no cut and will
apply thin, even coats of waxes, sealants, and glazes.
Blue Finessing Foam 6.5” – Flat pad has soft composition for applying glaze,
finishing polish, sealants, and liquid waxes. Flat pad provides full contact
with paint surface to minimize the pressure applied by the user. Use the blue
pad to remove products or for final buffing.
You can also choose from Lake Country' s Hydro-Tech Foam Pads. These flat 6.5 inch pads are designed specifically for the application of water-based polishes and compounds. European pre-polymer foam prolongs the working time so you have more time to create a flawless finish. Hydro-Tech 6.5 Inch Foam Pads are ideal for professional, body shop-safe polishes.
The Lake Country Hydro-Tech 6.5 Inch Foam Pads accomplish defect removal and finishing in just one step. This special foam composition leaves no marring so, even after compounding with the blue cutting pad, the finish is nearly wax-ready. Think of these pads as all-in-one polishing and finishing pads. They are available in three varieties:
Cyan Advanced Cutting Foam - The blue foam is designed for compounding and swirl removal. This closed cell pre-polymer foam restores oxidized and heavily swirled paint. Looks can be deceiving; the blue pad looks coarse but actually finishes with no marring. You'll achieve an almost wax-ready finish in one step. That's another way the Lake Country Hydro-Tech 6.5 Inch Foam Pads save you time.
The blue cutting foam works well with Menzerna Power Finish PO 203 and Meguiars Ultra-Cut Compound. Both polishes have great cutting power and a clean, glossy finish. Use either polish/pad combo on neglected finishes and watch the paint come to life!
Tangerine Ultra Polishing Foam - The tangerine foam is made for light to moderate defect removal and polishing. It has the cutting power just below that of the Lake Country orange light cutting pad, and the tangerine pad leaves a finish like you'd achieve with a black finishing pad.
Use a finishing polish or fine swirl remover to create a deep gloss. Menzerna Super Finish or Wolfgang Finishing Glaze are two excellent choices for this pad.
Crimson Finishing Foam - The crimson foam is designed to apply waxes, glazes, and sealants in flawless, even coats without causing swirls. The soft foam has no cutting ability. It simply serves as an applicator pad. Since the crimson pad is made of Hydro-Tech foam, it does not soak up liquid waxes and paint sealants like some finishing pads can. You'll be able to cover more paint with less product. The crimson pad is a great choice to apply Wolfgang Deep Gloss Paint Sealant 3.0.
For optimum results, it’s best to own each type of pad. Compounding with a
yellow or orange pad may slightly rough up the paint. You will need the white
pad to refine the paint to its original shine and texture. The black pad will
then give you a uniform wax application.
Proper Cleaning- Wash pads by hand using McKee's 37 Polishing Pad Rejuvenator or Snappy
Clean Pad Cleaning Powder mixed in 3-4 gallons of water. Agitate foam using a
Duo-Spur Pad Cleaning Tool and soak pad for up to 15 minutes. Rinse thoroughly
and allow to air dry.
I had just purchased an older boat which had not seen wax in many years and wanted to try the foam pads vs. the traditional method of wool wheel for the ruff cut with Flitz followed by a seal coat with the cloth buffer. I watched several videos on using foam pads (most are on cars) and still wasn't 100% sure on the correct way to use the pads so I only purchased the finishing pads because I wasn't confident the cutting pads would hold up to the heavy chalking a fiberglass. After numerous hours of working with several styles of working with the pads I was very pleased and ready to try the cutting pads. I used a light Dawn/water solution to clean the pads and after rinsing several times I found that I needed to roll the pads in a towel to get as much moisture out as possible. You will also need to let them to sit longer to fully dry.
Hold up very well and easy to use.
