Surbuf R Series 5.5 Inch Buffing Pads 2 Pack

MicroFingers technology produces smooth, flawless results!

Surbuf R Series 5.5 Inch Buffing Pads are the sure way to get uniform results every time. Every Surbuf pad is covered in MicroFingers, tiny vertical fibers that adjust to compensate for all the peaks and valleys of the paint finish. The result is a deeper, more uniform gloss over the entire vehicle. Use Surbuf R Series 5.5 Inch Buffing Pads with your random orbital or dual action polisher to experience the difference!

MicoFingers are independent, non-tufted vertical fibers that move and bend a lot like your fingers. As the pad moves over the paint, the fingers stiffen and flex according to the lay of the paint. It adjusts to the surface so you achieve uniform results. With flat pads, you have one large point of contact with the paint. With Surbuf pads with MicroFingers, the paint is being polished at multiple points of contact, resulting in a deep shine.

Surbuf R Series 5.5 Inch Buffing Pads look similar to wool pads, but that's where the similarities stop. The MicroFingers are unlike wool in the fact that the MicroFingers resist bending and matting. Because the MicroFingers remain separated, less heat builds up, which protects clear coat finishes from burning.

Close-up of SurBuf Microfingers.Plus, MicroFingers trap and hold finishing agents close to the surface as the Surbuf R Series 4 Inch Buffing Pad oscillates. The pad keeps the polish on the work surface, rather than soaking it up, which results in more effective swirl removal and polishing. Product waste is reduced. It takes half as much product on a Surbuf pad to accomplish the same results as other types of pads.

MicroFingers are attached to a flexible base that follows the contours of your vehicle. Surbuf R Series 5.5 Inch Buffing Pads have hook and loop fasteners from edge to edge to provide a secure hold on the backing plate.

Surbuf R Series 5.5 Inch Buffing Pads glide over the paint without snagging, skipping or chattering. Operate them at full speed on a random orbital or dual action polisher. The pads always produce a consistent finish.

Surbuf R Series 5.5 Inch Buffing Pads perform well with a variety of products, but many detailers have reported great success with Meguiars Mirror Glaze #105 Ultra-Cut Compound and #205 Ultra Finishing Polish. These two polishes use super-micro abrasives to remove imperfections without haze or compounding swirls. Surbuf R Series 5.5 Inch Buffing Pads keep the tiny abrasives within the MicroFingers, rather than soaking up the polishes, so the polishes are allowed to perform at their full potential.

Unlike other pad systems that offer various "cuts", Surbuf R Series 5.5 Inch Buffing Pads are suitable for any polishing or waxing application. The Surbuf pad provides a safe, nonabrasive applicator that allows the product to work as intended. If you're used to multiple pads, you'll need to experiment to find the right speed and length of time to work in a polish or cleaner. Follow the product manufacturers' instructions. Once you get the hang of it, Surbuf R Series 5.5 Inch Buffing Pads just might replace all your polishing and finishing pads!

Surbuf R Series 5.5 Inch Buffing Pads are designed specifically for random orbital and dual action polishers. Use a 5 Inch Dual Action Flexible Backing Plate.

Let your MicroFingers do the polishing! Surbuf R Series 5.5 Inch Buffing Pads adjust to the paint finish to deliver smooth, consistent results and a perfect shine every time.

  • Edge-to-edge loop fastening accepts various sizes of backing plates providing full hook-to-loop engagement for maximum holding strength and added peripheral edge stability.

best pads you can buy
these pads work real good, real smooth when using compound ,not like some other pads they get real hot and melt the pads these pads stay real cool when using them, great pad
Prosstay cool doesn't deform the pad like others do
The best of the best
These are my go to pads for any type of correction. They will turn a DA polisher into a beast with the proper technique and compound/polish. Whether it's Megs 105, Menzerna compound and/or polish, or Sonax Perfect Finish, I'm here to tell you that Surbuf pads will bring out the best of these polishes and your paint finish. I've gotten to the point where I prefer them over either foam or microfiber pads. Try it, and see for yourself.
ProsDoes some serious correction, cutting through oxidation, swirls, and scratches.
ConsBecause they have a fiber-like surface, these pads can cake up, but if you use a brush or have some backup pads ready you can either uncake your pad with the brush or slap another pad on your buffer.

love this pads
Love them for compounding or polishing either way a sure bet!!!
I just use the hose to clean them off and put them in the dryer at low temp for 40 min!!!
Fantastic Cutting Pads
These are really great pads when you need something with serious cutting ability. These have become a go-to pad in my arsenal on hard/seriously neglected clear coats.
hard to clean
I used them with the optimum hyper compound and they removed 99% of the defects. You need to follow up with a polish to result in a mirror finish. I cleaned them in dawn dish washing soap and water and cant tell if they are clean or not. A lot of the 'fingers' aren't standing up like they used to. Is that normal?
