Waffle buffing and waffle polishing pads have a loyal following thanks to their smooth operation and minimal heat build up. Waffle pads were primarily developed for applications with a circular polisher but they have become increasingly popular with dual action polishers as well. The convoluted waffle design creates a smooth buffing experience, minimizing user fatigue. Since the face of a waffle pad never makes 100% surface contact, they run considerably cooler, reducing the chance of overheating the paint. Having the ability to operate at lower temperatures also makes waffle pads more durable.
Waffle buffing and waffle polishing pads are available from various manufactures, including 3M and Lake Country. From compounding to polishing, you will find a waffle pad for your application on this page.
