Work Horse Wool  And Foam Buffing Pads

Work-Horse Finishing Pad -a dense foam that provides a protective cushion allowing foam compression to maintain constant surface pressure while lessening machine vibration. This black engineered foam is imported from Europe and is specifically designed for polishing and buffing and is used at an OEM level worldwide.

This Black Finishing Pad can be used with pre-wax cleaners, finishing polishes and even more course polishes. This dense pad provides even product application and professional polishing ability The white foam polishes the paint without abrading clear coat or single stages.

Use With:

  • Composition is firm enough to withstand added pressure during final finishing to remove buffer swirls.

  • It has no cut and will apply thin, even coats of waxes, sealants, and glazes.

  • Tested and approved at OEM levels, these pads using strategic patterns of partially closed cells reduce the rate of polish absorption, improves operator control whilst at the same time reducing heat.

  • The best and easiest to use pad to restore and enhance shine and gloss. Ideal for regular paint care with minor surface imperfections.

New Micro-pore Technology Micro-Pore foam ensures that every pore exactly the same size as the one next to it, this way CG-Specializing pads can assure a perfect finish every time on a PC or Rotary. You will notice when you squeeze our pads that they are very dense and 2" inches thick, Micro-Pore pads are dense to keep the product in the pad for even spreading, cutting, polishing and finishing. Utilizing Dense Micro-Pore Technology (MPT) also allows CG-Specializing pads to be used at a higher speed setting to deliver a truly perfect finish by reducing, slinging and waste and increasing coverage area.

Understanding Wool Pads:

For years body shops and professional detailers have used wood pads. Just like Foam pads have different colors to symbolize the level of cut, so do wool pads. Wool Pads come in a variety of blends to accommodate your every need. One category are buffing pads made from wool.

For simplicity reasons the Chemical Guys Work-Horse line uses 3 different wool pads.

  • Heavy Cut

  • Medium Cut

  • Light Cut / Polish

Follow these general rules for better results from your wool pads:

  • Make it a practice to periodically check the pad during the buffing process.

  • Clean the pad when the pad surface begins to glaze over from compound/polish build up.

  • Wash Pads well after use with PAD WASHER .

  • After washing, do not dry pads with high heat as this promotes wool shrinkage.

  • Let pads air dry or spin them out inside the Pad Washer.

  • Keep pads in a clean and dry location when not being used. This will minimize foreign particles from coming in contact with the buffing surface the next time you use the pad.
