Lake Country Flat Pads are the classic foam pads with flat, full contact surface. These are still some of the best pads you can use on your dual action polisher. Lake Country's durable foam compositions minimize heat build-up to protect the paint. The hook and loop backing covers nearly the entire back of each pad with it being "cutback" from the edge, providing a secure hold on the backing plate. The flat pads are excellent for large, flat panels. The foam stays in contact with the paint so you can work efficiently. Lake Country Flat Pads feature a thickness of 7/8" of an inch, as well as a reduced bevel for the perfect balance and control. The smooth feel and performance of these newly refreshed Lake Country Flat Pads allows for the perfect alignment of your backing plate for an overall increased experience.
The Lake Country Flat Pads feature a "Simple 6" idea. This easy-to-understand system keeps your pad colors and uses consistent throughout the CCS and Flat Lake Country Pads.
Yellow Cutting Flat Foam Pad
Use this pad to apply compounds or polishes to remove severe oxidation, swirls, and scratches. It is the most aggressive and should only be used on oxidized and heavily swirled finishes. Always follow this pad with a white or gray pad and a fine polish to refine the paint until it is smooth.
Orange Light Cutting Flat Foam Pad
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 Heavy Polishing Flat Foam Pad
Less dense foam formula for the application of cleaner waxes, one step polishes, or "all in one" type products. This pad has very light cutting power, so it's perfect for pre-wax cleaners.
Green Polishing/AIO Flat Foam Pad
Use this foam to apply one-step cleaner waxes. It is a balance of polishing and finishing that is perfect for all-in-one product application.
Blue Light Polishing Flat Foam Pad
This pad is not as dense as the green polishing pad and provides little cutting ability. Generally used to polish to perfect, this pad will leave a high shine on the surface. Perfect for use with a finishing glaze, last-step polish, and some all-in-one cleaner polishes.
Black Finishing Flat Foam Pad
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.
For optimum results, it's best to own each type of pad. Compounding with a yellow or orange pad may leave a light haze. You will need the white or blue pad to refine the paint to its original shine and texture. The black pad will then give you a uniform wax application.
