Meguiars 8 Inch Soft Buff Pads

Meguiars 8 Inch Soft Buff PadsTake the guesswork out of choosing foam pads – trust Meguiar’s!

Polishing pads come in all sorts of varieties, sizes, and colors. It can be tough to choose one to suit your vehicle’s needs and your particular polisher. Meguiar’s makes the choice easy with their Soft Buff Pads, exclusively for circular polishers. These pads come in three varieties to tackle every step of the compounding process. Your circular polisher can be as gentle or as aggressive as you prefer by just changing the pad.

All of the Meguiar’s Soft Buff Pads are made with an exclusive foam cell structure that improves air flow. Heat generated by the friction of the pad can escape through this porous structure, lessening the chance of burning the paint. Great care should still be taken to prevent this permanent problem. These pads also feature a quick-change Velcro backing system that holds the pad securely in place until you are ready to change it.

Burgundy Cutting Pad 8.5”- This pad is the most aggressive with moderate cutting power. It will remove moderate swirls, scratches, and oxidation without creating swirl marks like wool pads. Use with a swirl remover or paint cleaner. This dense foam is safe for clear coats if properly used.

Yellow Polishing Pad 8.5”- This pad has mild cutting action and should be used to apply polishes to newer vehicles. It removes minor surface imperfections and restores an attractive luster to your paint. Use with a mild swirl remover or fine polish. You can also use it for wax application, but do not use the same pad for different products. This pad is safe for clear coats.

This soft foam is gentle on paint and clear coats, and creates a high gloss shine without swirl marks. Use with Wolfgang Deep Gloss Paint Protectant for a brilliant finish.

While these pads attempt to minimize the risk involved with circular polishers, you should still be an experienced operator or in the company of an experienced detailer when using a circular polisher.

Use the Meguiar’s 6” backing plate with these pads.

For those who swear by circular polishers, Meguiar’s pads offer performance and great value. Buy one of each color to eliminate the full spectrum of imperfections on your vehicle, restoring it to a flawless shine.

To clean pads by hand use DP Polishing Pad Rejuvenator. Mix one scoopful of this citrus cleaner with 3-4 gallons of water. Allow the pads to soak for up to 15 minutes. Agitate them using a Foam Pad Conditioning Brush. When the pads appear clean, rinse them in clean water and allow them to air dry.
