Single 5 1/2 x 7/8 Inch Hydro-Tech Tangerine Ultra Polishing Foam Pad

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 gray 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.

Favorite Polishing Pad
I have two favorite applications for this pad:

1. One steps, paired with Menzerna PF2500 medium cut polish, I get excellent defect removal, and excellent finish.
2. Final polishing with Menzerna SF4000 fine polish. Easily the best gloss I've ever been able to produce.

The entire Hydrotech line gets excellent rotation this helps keep those abrasives acting on the paint. The closed cell construction works as advertised, keeping the polish on the paint, resisting absorption into the pad.

I find that these pads excel on traditional random orbital tools, lime the Porter Cable 7424xp. They require much less preasure, and less speed. I've never need speed 6 with them.

Because of the closed cell foam they are made of, these pads are more sensitive to how they are being used. Excessive pressure and heat can cause problems. Aggressive cleaning techniques either on the fly, or at the end of the job will also impact longevity. The other problem people run into is using them before they've completely dried. Heat and internal moisture will usually cause the pad to cave in the center.

My suggestion is to practice with the more durable flat pads, then graduate to the Hydrotechs! Well worth the learning curve. I've had some for three years now. I will continue to use them, and recommend them to people who have a similar approach to polishing as I do.


ProsMaximum versatility. Surprising cut. Excellent rotation. Unbelievable gloss.
ConsNone.

Perfect polishing pad for GG6
I've tried a lot of different pads for use with my GG6 DA polisher. This is the best yet. I just ordered 6 more.
ProsThin is in!
STELLAR!
These with Menz PO85rd finished down so well I could not believe my eyes! I thought I might have to do a final once over with the crimson pad, but I ended up sending the red ones back- these finished THAT NICE!!!
