Lake Country Hydro-Tech 3 x 1.25 Inch Foam Pads
Lake Country Hydro-Tech 3 x 1.25 Inch Foam Pads are designed to absorb less car polish and wax as you detail with your polisher. European pre-polymer foam prolongs the working time so you have more time to create a flawless finish. Small 3 Inch Hydro-Tech Foam Pads are perfect for detailing small spaces with your polisher or electric drill.
With Lake Country's Hydro-Tech 3 x 1.25 Inch Foam Pads, you can detail narrow areas on your vehicle, like pillars and bumpers, and use the same quality foam and application method you've used on larger panels. This promotes a uniform finish across the entire vehicle.
Lake Country Hydro-Tech 3 x 1.25 Inch Foam Pads are made of imported European pre-polymer foam. This long-wearing, high quality foam is less absorbent in order to keep the majority of polish on the pad's surface. You'll experience a longer working time with your water-based polishes and compounds, resulting in less product used to achieve the perfect finish.
Water-based polishes can soak into some foam pads like, well, water. That requires you to keep reapplying polish to the pad. With Lake Country Hydro-Tech 3 x 1.25 Inch Foam Pads, water-based polishes work longer and you use less polish. You'll save time and polish!
The Lake Country Hydro-Tech 3 x 1.25 Inch Foam Pads accomplish defect removal, polishing and finishing in fewer steps. 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.
Lake Country Hydro-Tech 3 x 1.25 Inch Foam Pads 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 3 x 1.25 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 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.
Crimson Ultra Finishing Foam - The crimson foam is designed to apply waxes, glazes, and sealants in flawless, even coats without causing swirls. The soft foam has very light polishing ability, making it a great choice for cleaner waxes, too. 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.
Like Lake Country's other premium foam pads, Lake Country Hydro-Tech 3 x 1.25 Inch Foam Pads are made with high quality hook and loop backing. Use the 2 3/4 Inch Hook and Loop Rotary Backing Plate equipped with a Spot Buffs Drill Adapter on a drill. Use the 3 Inch Dual Action Flexible Backing Plate with your dual action polisher.
The flat face of the Lake Country Hydro-Tech 3 x 1.25 Inch Foam Pads also helps to keep water-based polishes on the surface of the pad. The flat pads maintain full contact with the paint, and they have enough flexibility to hug the curves and contours of your vehicle. The thickness of the pads allows you to get into concave areas with less risk of striking the backing plate on paint.
Lake Country Hydro-Tech 3 x 1.25 Inch Foam Pads work with any type of polish but they're pre-polymer composition makes them ideal for water-based polishes. Water-based polishes are used by body shops and paint shops because the oils in silicone-based polishes will interfere with paint. If you want a professional quality finish, water-based polishes applied with applied with Lake Country Hydro-Tech 3 x 1.25 Inch Foam Pads are the way to go. They'll save you time and polish!
