Cobra Cross Groove Flex Foam 6.5 Inch Buffing Pads

Cobra Cross Groove Flex Foam 6.5 Inch Buffing PadsCross-cut grooves give foam greater flexibility!

Flat foam pads were fine for the boxy cars of the past, but today's cars are sleek and curvy. Buffing pads have to be flexible. Cobra Cross Groove Flex Foam 6.5 Inch Buffing Pads have cross-cut grooves that allow the pads more flexibility against curved fenders.

The Cross Groove design allows air to pass through the pad. The benefits are two fold: heat buildup is reduced and surface tension is reduced. The pad glides over the paint more easily. Heat does not build up under the pad, which all but eliminates the risk of burning the paint.

The grooves also serve as polish holders. Polish can sometimes sling off of a flat pad. On the Cobra Cross Groove Flex Foam 6.5 Inch Buffing Pads, excess polish is channeled into the grooves. As the raised foam runs low on polish, it pulls more polish from the channels.

You'll never miss a spot with the Cobra Cross Groove Flex Foam 6.5 Inch Buffing Pads. The channels allow the foam to collapse slightly in the middle when pressed against a curved surface. This flexibility provides full contact between the paint and the paint.

Cobra Cross Groove Flex Foam 6.5 Inch Buffing Pads all have curved edges to protect the paint from cookie-cutting. You can approach a raised slops on the vehicle body without gauging the paint with a sharp foam edge. The gently curved foam is safer on your vehicle's curves.

All Cobra Cross Groove Flex Foam 6.5 Inch Buffing Pads have hook and loop fasteners from edge to edge. The fasteners provide a secure hold on the backing plate during operation, even at high speeds. Pad changes are quick and easy.

Cobra Cross Groove Flex Foam 6.5 Inch Buffing Pads are designed for a dual action polisher, such as the Porter Cable 7424XP or Meguiars G110 DA Polisher. A 5 inch backing plate should be used to provide ample distance between the edge of the plate and the edge of the foam. This margin will provide an extra level of protection for the paint.

The Cobra Cross Groove Flex Foam 6.5 Inch Buffing Pads are available in five professional grade foam compositions:
Orange Light Cutting Foam - This orange pad is designed for polishes, swirl removers, and micro fine compounds. It is suitable for repair or swirl marks, water spots, light to moderate oxidation and minor scratches.

White Polishing Foam - This white pad polishes the paint using pre-wax cleaners, cleaner waxes, and finishing polishes. This dense pad provides even product application and very light cleaning ability The white foam lightly polishes the paint without abrading clear coat or single stages.

Gray Finishing Foam - This gray pad is designed for applying glazes, waxes and sealants. The composition is firm enough to remove buffer swirls but soft enough to gently apply nonabrasive products on all types of paint.

Blue Final Finishing Foam - This blue pad is designed for applying liquid waxes, sealants, and finishing glazes. The soft, absorbent foam will not scratch clear coated or single stage paint finishes.

Red LSP Finishing Foam - This red pad is ideal for applying the final coat of wax or sealant. The foam works particularly well when applying liquids because it is firm enough to keep the majority of the product on the paint, rather than soaking it up. The red foam has no cut or cleaning ability.


Wash pads in a mixture of Detailer's Pro Series Polishing Pad Rejuvenator and water. Soak the pads and rinse well. Air dry.
