Use a clean buffing pad every time!
The Lake Country 1-Pad Polishing System eliminates the use of dirty, worn-out buffing pads and cross-contamination. That's because Lake Country 1-Pads are single-use pads. The special backing plate has many of the features you'd normally find in the pad, which allows the changeable pads to be thinner and more economical. So throw them out! For every detail job, use a fresh, new pad.
Lake Country 1-Pads are thin, bowl-shaped foam "skins" that attach to the Tri-Density Backing Plate. With most pad systems, the pad itself absorbs heat and buffers the vibration of the polisher with thick foam. With the Lake Country 1-Pad System, the backing plate does all that. The 1-Pad just has the job of polishing or waxing. Since each pad is only intended for one use, it can be thinner and you won't sacrifice any performance.
Each 1-Pad uses 65% less material than most conventional foam pads. Therefore, they're less expensive. You can toss them in the trash and start fresh with every new detail.
The patented Tri-Density Backing Plate has a curved bottom that sits inside of the bowl-shaped 1-Pad buffing pads. The Tri-Density Backing Plate is very flexible. The cushioned backing plate is made almost entirely of flexible materials. When you transition from a flat surface to a vertical surface with your buffer, the Tri-Density Backing Plate flexes so the pad can maintain contact with the paint. The rounded backing plate and pad allows the pad to travel over curved and concave panels safely. Plus, the backing plate won't break down because it is never in contact with the paint.
Lake Country 1-Pads are self-centering. They attach to the backing plate with hook and loop fasteners. The foam pads feature CCS (Collapsed Cell Structure) technology to evenly distribute polish over the working surface of the pad and reduce product waste. The wool pads are the same high quality as Lake Country's 8 inch wool pads.
The Lake Country 1-Pad Polishing System consists of:
Tri-Density Rotary Backing Plate - This ultra flexible, cushioned backing plate makes it easy to transition from flat to vertical panels. The Tri-Density Backing Plate is specially designed to provide added cushioning and flexibility to 1-Pads. It centers itself perfectly in each 1-Pad.
1-Pad 4 Ply 100% Twisted Wool Compounding Pad - High grade wool strands are tightly twisted to maintain a consistent level of cut for longer periods of operation. The thick, 1 inch yarns remove heavy oxidation and stains from neglected or never-before-polished surfaces.
1-Pad 50/50 Wool Acrylic Polishing Pad - This wool pad has 50% 4 ply wool and 50% single strand wool/acrylic blend. This combination makes a light compounding/polishing wool that removes minor oxidation, haze, and dullness.
1-Pad Cyan Advanced Cutting Foam - The cyan foam is designed for compounding and swirl removal. This closed cell pre-polymer foam restores oxidized and heavily swirled paint. The cyan pad finishes with no marring and achieves an almost wax-ready finish in one step.
1-Pad Yellow Cutting Foam- Use the yellow pad to apply compounds or polishes to remove severe oxidation, swirls, and scratches. It should only be used on oxidized and older finishes. Always follow this pad with a less aggressive pad and a fine polish to refine the paint until it is smooth.
1-Pad Orange Light Cutting Foam- The orange pad is made of firm, high density foam for scratch and defect removal. Use this pad with polishes and swirl removers. This multi-purpose pad will work on most light to moderate imperfections.
1-Pad 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 orange light cutting pad, and it performs similarly to a black finishing pad.
1-Pad White Polishing Foam- The white pad is designed for the application of micro-fine polishes, prewax cleaners, and cleaner waxes.
1-Pad Black Finishing Foam- The black pad's 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.
