    7.5" US Black Finishing Hex Faced Foam Grip Pad™ with Center Ring Backing

    7.5″ US Black Finishing Hex Faced Foam Grip Pad™ with Center Ring Backing

    Finding a simple to use self centering system has been the subject of many ideas and innovations in the reconditioning industry. The results have been scattered, until now. The benefits of finding a solution are clear: instant centering achieves vibration free buffing with less fatigue and a better result.

    Our patent pending “Ring Pad” system does all this and more. Along with the centering benefit we have shaped the front of the pad with a hex design and engineered a flexible backing plate that will accept air, rotary and random orbit buffers; the hex face will help dissipate polish or compounds evenly, minimizing grabbing and reducing heat while the backing plate helps reduce pad stiffness. Each of our colored foam buffs has a measured cell structure that provides a different level of cutting or finishing. Used in conjunction with your favorite buffing medium, this is the ultimate buffing solution.
