Lake Country Hydro-Tech Hand Pads are designed to make hand polishing a much less arduous task, and will correct minor defects and enhance surface gloss when used in conjunction with light polishing compounds (such as Menzerna 203S) and ultra-fine finishing polishes (such as Menzerna 85RE). When polishing by hand, it's easy to overlook the role of the applicator pad. However, this is a mistake, because quite often you can make any given compound or polish work better simply by using a firmer, denser pad. Lake Country Hydro-Tech Hand Pads fit this bill perfectly, and come in three different grades suited to different paint types and tasks.
Lake Country Hydro-Tech Hand Pads are manufactured using ultra high quality European foams, and have been specifically designed for compounding, polishing and finishing all forms of modern paint systems by hand. All of the pads in the range utilise dense, pre-polymer, non-reticulated foams with a closed cell structure, which prevent water-based 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, therefore maximising cutting efficiency. 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 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!); (iii) 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; (iv) whilst not in use, store in a dry, dust-free environment (lidded plastic storage boxes are ideal in this respect).
