Q. How many kinds of buffing pads are there?
A. Chemical Guys manufactures two types of buffing pads. Within
these two groups are sub groups of buffing pads that are different
in respect to their composition, size and design. The two main
buffing pad groups are
wool and foam pads.
Q. What are wool pads?
A. One category are buffing pads are made from wool. There are
also blended pads, that is pads that have a mix of wool and
synthetic materials. Depending on the purpose, wool can be spun into
various yarns, some are twisted, Some are not. For example, if a
customer needs a buffing pad that is aggressive, we can offer
him/her a buffing pad that is 100% twisted wool. Twisted wool is
considered aggressive in terms of cutting ability. On the other
hand, if a customer wants a buffing pad for final finishing or
non-aggressive polishing, we can provide yarns that are non-twisted
or made with a mixture of synthetic materials.
Q. What’s the difference between American Foams and European Foams?
A. The main difference between American made foam pads and
European foam pads was the size, density and firmness of the foams.
Euro foams are generally smaller, approximately 6” diameter on
average. In Europe, detail shops are a rare find; most buffing is
done on small panel repair at the body shop level. However, this is
changing with the rising popularity of independent service stations
offering detailing. Furthermore, European paint has traditionally
been high solid low solvent compositions; their foam pads worked
well under their physically restrictive conditions. The transition
to conform to the new and ever changing environmental laws here was
difficult at first, but technology caught up and eventually the
impact on us was the discovery our wool pads worked wonderfully on
the new paint, better than European foams, especially with the
