To achieve the best possible finish, we've always recommended that last step products should be applied by hand using a good quality foam applicator pad. Whilst this remains the case for all paste waxes, our opinion has changed with respect to certain liquid sealants and waxes, as their formulas have evolved to become friction activated. Auto Finesse Power Seal is one such product, and it gives maximum protection and performance when it is applied by dual action machine at high speed. Auto Finesse have now made the perfect finishing pad to apply it.
The Auto Finesse 160 mm Supreme Pad is manufactured in the UK using an ultra soft finishing foam, and has been specifically designed for applying Auto Finesse Power Seal. The foam used is thermally reticulated, giving a final cell count of 90 pores per inch, while the recessed hook and loop fastening material is perfectly sized to accept 125 mm backing plates. Whether you are a novice or an expert detailer, this pad will enable you to get the best possible results from Auto Finesse Power Seal.
General usage notes: (i) always select the least aggressive pad you think you will need to achieve the desired result, and step up one grade at a time if more cut is required (ii) always ensure that you centre each pad properly on the backing plate (this can take several attempts to get right, but is vital if the machine is to remain perfectly balanced during use); (iii) always use an appropriate sized pad for the backing plate you are using (the pad should always protrude past the edge of the backing plate, never the other way around); (iv) always ensure that excess polish residue on the face of the pad is brushed off regularly during use using a PB Utility Brush (failure to follow this advice can lead to micromarring of the finish, so don’t be lazy!); (v) after use, soak each pad in a bucket of Lake Country Snappy Pad Cleaner solution for 15 minutes and then rinse under fresh running water (using your fingertips to massage out any remaining polish residue) and allow to dry naturally, and; (vi) whilst not in use, store in a dry, dust-free environment (lidded plastic storage boxes are ideal in this respect).
