    7.5″ Euro White 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.

    6.5″ Green Extreme Cutting Low Pro Foam Grip Pad™

    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.
