|7.5 inch Hook & Loop DuroWool 100% Twisted Wool Cutting Pad|
A 7.5 inch 100% wool pad for your 6 inch rotary backing plate.
Wool pads were the original polishing pads and they’re still the choice of many professional detailers to correct paint with rotary polishers. Lake Country’s 7.5 inch Hook & Loop DuroWool 100% Wool Pads are made with a unique, heat-resistant polymer backing that creates a safer polishing experience. Use them with your 6 inch rotary hook & loop backing plate.
Because wool pads typically transfer more heat to the paint than foam pads, we recommend that you begin with a dual action polisher and foam pads before using a wool pad and rotary polisher. If you are an experienced rotary user, you’ll find Lake Country wool pads are superior to any wool pads you’ve used in the past.
To lessen the risk, Lake Country’s DuroWool pads have a special thermoplastic polymer backing that adds tremendous strength to the pad even when exposed to high temperatures. This material, called SURLYN, allows the wool pads to last twice as long as conventionally backed pads. Lake Country promises that their 7.5 inch DuroWool Pads will outlast any wool pads you’ve used before.
Lake Country’s Wool Cutting Pad is made of 100% wool twisted into hundreds of individual strands. The tight twisting allows the pad to operate at a consistent level of aggressiveness for longer periods. With a 1 inch pile, the pad will hold up to many, many uses. The pad has a diameter of 7.5 inches but the thick pile gives it an overall diameter of 8 inches. You’ll be able to cover a lot of paint in a little time with this large wool pad. The Wool Cutting Pad is intended for severe swirls, scratches and heavy oxidation. Because this is a more aggressive pad, you’ll want a compound to get the best results. Optimum Hyper Compound and Meguiars #4 Heavy Cut Cleaner are examples of paint compounds.
Follow up with a foam polishing pad to refine the paint after using a wool pad.
If you’re wool pad becomes caked during use, use a steel brush to fluff up the pile. Turn the polisher off and lay it on the ground with the pad facing up. Turn the polisher on at its lowest setting and hold the brush against the wool as the pad spins. The pad will fluff in a few seconds.
To clean wool pads as you use them, mix a scoop of Snappy Clean with 3-4 gallons of water. Toss the used pads into the bucket and let them soak for up to 15 minutes. Spin them dry on your circular polisher.
The 7.5 inch Hook & Loop DuroWool 100% Wool Pads are suitable for any rotary polisher with a 6 inch backing plate. The SURLYN thermoplastic backing and high quality wool will provide you with excellent results every time.
