    8" US Yellow Med. Cut/Polishing Hex Faced Foam Grip Pad™ with Center Ring Backing

    8″ US Yellow Med. Cut/Polishing 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.

    4″ Yellow Foam Grip Pad™ for Dual Headed Polisher

    Buff and Shine Mfg. is now manufacturing a full line of 4″ foam pads that fit the Cyclo dual head polisher. The quality and craftsmanship of these new pads is far superior to anything on the market. Here is why.

    VELCRO TRIM – We have taken the extra step to evenly trim the Velcro loop back from the outer edge of the pad to prevent accidental contact with the paint that could cause $100s or possibly $1000s in damages.

    CRAFTSMANSHIP – Our pads our consistently crisply and cleanly cut. The side walls of the pad are perfectly straight down on every pad. Check your current stock and you will find inconsistent concaved sidewalls. This is due to incorrect cutting procedures. You will find every pad will look different.

    ADHESIVE – A common problem with Velcro pads is the Velcro peeling off. We are using an adhesive that will never come off ever. It is heat resistant, chemical resistant and 100% fully washable over and over again. Remember when you buy Buff and Shine products we stand behind our products with a 100% guarantee.

    When used with our backing plate number 350Y you get a numerous benefits aside from safety of the no exposed sharp edge you get a flexible backing plate foam pad combo which glides over automotive body style lines with ease.

    3" Xtra Soft Backing Plate with 5/8" threads

    3″ Xtra Soft Backing Plate with 5/8″ threads

    It’s a new buffing world out there, even for the classic simple rotary (high-speed) machine. Some technicians have transitioned to the use of thinner buffing pads, like our Micro Fiber and Low-Pro Pads. Buff and Shine’s new Thick Flexible Backing Plate is an ideal match for these and other pads. Available in three sizes for all your buffing needs. Constructed with an 1″ thick polyurethane layer, the Thick Flexible Backing Plate can offer dramatically increased flexibility that can make up for the loss of flexibility that is sometimes experienced with thin buffing pads. This allows the technician who loves the performance of thin pads to also enjoy the capability of working contours in the vehicle surface that are otherwise more difficult to reach with traditional backing plates.

    You will find that the Thick Flexible Backing Plate allows superior control and distribution of pressure over body style lines. It provides virtually 100% surface contact across contours while reducing the potential for damage to protruding body style edges. The highly-beveled pad edge allows for “working into” the deepest body line recesses.

    The 7″ diameter size is great for use with a traditional rotary buffer on larger open surface areas or vehicle painted panels like hoods and trunk lids. The 5″ diameter size is great for smaller panels and those with heavy contouring. The 3″ size is perfect for buffing tight areas with your favorite smaller rotary polisher (but it also works even with traditional-sized rotary buffers!). Use the 3″ size for working on headlight lens restoration.

    As with all Buff and Shine backing plates, the Thick Flexible Backing Plate is constructed with the highest quality materials and designed to provide countless hours of use, even with the abuse that a rotary polisher can dish out!

    2″ Uro-Fiber™ Pad

    Buff and Shine Uro-Fiber Pads are designed to fully maximize the detailing potential already seen in microfiber pads. With a 25% lower pile than traditional microfiber pads, Buff and Shine Uro-Fiber Pads also feature a blend of two different microfiber grades into just one pad. These two features, never before seen in a microfiber pad, allow you to cut, polish and finish in just one step!

    While the black and white fibers found in the Buff and Shine Uro-Fiber Pads lead to an overall attractive appearance, they are for so much more than just looks. With both cutting fibers and polishing fibers blended together into one pad, you are now able to remove light to moderate scratches and swirls, polish to perfection, and buff to a high shine in just one pad! Although, of course, you will need a clean pad for each step.

    Use 2 inch Buff and Shine Uro-Fiber Pad with a 2 inch backing plate.

    The most robust foam pads ever created!

    Buff & Shine Low-Pro Large Throw Foam Pads will forever change your expectations for how long a foam pad should last. Constructed out of state-of-the-art foam formulations (Buff & Shine’s specialty), Buff & shine Low-Pro Large Throw Foam Pads were designed to withstand the massive orbit of large-throw polishers. If you’re sick and tired of going through a set of pads after each detail, Buff & Shine Low-Pro Large Throw Foam Pads will save you time and money.

    Buff & Shine, an innovator in the car care foam technology industry, pulled out all the stops when developing their new line of Low-Pro Foam Pads. It’s apparent right away that Buff & Shine spent a great amount of time meticulously testing and redesigning each foam pad until it was absolutely perfect. These lightweight, robust foam pads utilize a new foam formulation that promises to outlast and outperform conventional foam pads on a large-throw random orbital polisher.

    Benefits of Buff & Shine Low-Pro Large Throw Foam Pads:

    Made in USA
    New foam formulation prevents pad collapsing
    Custom foam grades for quick defect removal
    High heat resistant rubber interface
    Engineered for perfect balance
    Buff & shine Low-Pro Large Throw Foam Pads have an engineered rubber interface which is flame, fuel and oil resistant. This unique interface is what enables Buff & shine Low-Pro Large Throw Foam Pads to withstand the immense amount of heat created by large throw polishers. The interface also provides constant pressure to the surface being polished for consistent results.

    Buff & shine Low-Pro Large Throw Foam Pads are available in the following configurations for all your buffing and polishing applications.

    Green Extreme Cutting

    The GREEN foam pad is constructed of a very coarse, dense sharp foam that is able to level severe defects on hard paint systems. Heavy swirl marks, scratches, type 3water spots and other paint imperfections will be effortlessly removed with this pad. Always follow this pad with a less aggressive pad/polish combination to maximize gloss and surface smoothness.

    Orange Medium Cut/Polishing

    The ORANGE foam pad is constructed out of a dense, sharp foam that is able to level moderate to heavy defects on hard paint systems. Swirls, light scratches, type 2 water spots and other paint imperfections will easily be removed with this pad. This pad is aggressive enough for most applications on factory clear coat systems. Always follow this pad with a less aggressive pad/polish combination to maximize gloss and surface smoothness.

    Maroon Polishing

    The MAROON foam pad is almost as dense as the orange foam pad, but it’s constructed out of a less aggressive foam that is perfect for refining a soft paint system to an extremely high gloss. The Maroon foam pad removes light swirl marks, holograms, clay-induced marring, and other light paint imperfections. This pad finishes exceptionally well considering the mechanical polishing ability that it provides.

    Red Finishing

    The RED foam pad is the softest foam pad in the Low-Pro system. It is designed for applying ultra-fine polishes, glazes, waxes and synthetic sealants. The Red foam pad will finish flawlessly on any paint system, creating an exceptionally glossy finish worthy of a show car.
