Buff and Shine 5.5" Orange Euro Foam Pad
Buff and Shine European Foam Pads
Playing a minor role in the foam pad mix are the Euro foam pads, at least here in the USA. The main difference between American made foam pads and European foam pads was the size, density and firmness of the foams. Euro foams are generally smaller, approximately 6 diameter on average.
In Europe, detail shops are a rare find; most buffing is done on small panel repair at the body shop level. However, this is changing with the rising popularity of independent service stations offering detailing. Furthermore, European paint has traditionally been high solid low solvent compositions; their foam pads worked well under their physically restrictive conditions.
The transition to conform to the new and ever changing environmental laws here was difficult at first, but technology caught up and eventually the impact on us was the discovery our wool pads worked wonderfully on the new paint, better than European foams, especially with the initial cut.
Buff and Shine foam polishing pads are perfect for Dual Action polishers. Buff and Shine buffing pads are superior in quality and craftsmanship.
The velcro loop is evenly trimmed back from the outer edge of the pad to prevent accidental contact with the paint that could cause damage.
The pads are consistently crisp and cleanly cut. The side walls of the pad are perfectly straight down on every pad. Check your current stock and you will find inconsistent concaved sidewalls. This is due to incorrect cutting procedures. You will find every pad will look different.
A common problem with velcro pads is the velcro peeling off. These pads use an adhesive that will never come off ever. It is heat resistant, chemical resistant and 100% fully washable over and over again.
All of our pads are made of high strength reticulated foam. In other words, the cells are open; this allows air to flow through the foam. Chemical compounds and polishes require the right amount of air flow through the foam. Open cell foam is ideal for this process to succeed. Not only is closed cell foam not ideal, it is weaker structurally.
