Why CCS Technology? CCS (Collapsed Cell Structure) pads were developed for automakers and polishing companies. The result of this development was the patented Collapsed Cell Structure technology. The basis of this technology is a pattern of strategically placed pockets on the surface of the pad. In these areas the cells of the pad have been closed. As a result polish does not soak into the pad like conventional pads, meaning the polish is able to work for longer.
