The short version as to why we like the Lake Country Hydro-Tech Cutting Pad so much is as follows; it is easy to use, works well with all types of compounds and delivers excellent results on all paint types. However, there's a couple of technical features underpinning this, which are worth saying a little more about. Firstly, the Lake Country Hydro-Tech Cutting Pad comprises a soft dense foam with a closed cell structure, which prevents the compound from being absorbed into the pad. By ensuring that the compound stays sandwiched between the pad and the panel being polished, cutting efficiency is maximised. Secondly, the Lake Country Hydro-Tech Cutting Pad eschews complexity and features a flat unpatterned face, which prevents unspent product from being unwittingly stored and released with variable pressure inputs. In simple terms, this makes it quicker and easier to achieve full product break down (with diminishing compounds) and thus perfect mar-free results.
