Lake Country 140 mm Rotary H-T Pads are designed specifically with rotary machine polishing in mind, and offer a number of distinct advantages over regular pads. Firstly, they comprise foams with a closed cell structure, which prevents compounds and polishes from being absorbed into them during use. By ensuring that the product stays sandwiched between the pad and the panel being polished, cutting efficiency is maximised and full product breakdown is more readily achieved. Secondly, and even more importantly in our opinion, all of the pads in the line are formed more thinly than regular pads, meaning that they offer excellent comfort and control during use. Being able to feel precisely what is happening between the pad and the panel is critical when using a rotary machine polisher, and in this respect Lake Country 140 mm Rotary H-T Pads outperform every other type of pad we stock. For rotary use on all modern paint types these pads are nigh on perfect in every way.
Lake Country 140 mm Rotary H-T Pads are manufactured using ultra high quality foams, and are ideal for compounding, polishing and finishing all forms of modern paint systems using rotary machine polishers. All of the pads in the range utilise dense, pre-polymer, non-reticulated foams with a closed cell structure, which helps to prevent compounds and polishes from being absorbed into the pad. As a result, all of the pads in the range hold product where it is needed most, i.e. between the pad and the panel being polished, and therefore maximise cutting efficiency. All of the Lake Country 140 mm Rotary H-T Pads feature a durable hook and loop backing that enables quick and easy pad changes. This backing material is also neatly chamfered for safety and complete peace of mind. Furthermore, all of the pads are formed more thinly than regular pads in order to ensure maximum feel and comfort during use. Three different grades of pad are currently available in the range.
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).
