Natural wool fibres have been used as a polishing medium for automotive paint since the 1950s, mostly in the form of bulky dish-style pads designed to be used with traditional rotary polishers. Although it has been proven that such pads offer up to 30% more cut than their polyurethane foams counterparts, they are typically too heavy to be used on modern dual action polishers. However, in recent years, new methods of construction developed in Asia and Europe have resulted in the production of a new breed of ultra-thin wool pads with much lower rotational masses, meaning they can be used on dual action machines without causing any issues. In line with this, the RUPES Nano iBrid Coarse Wool Polishing Pad brings the awesome cutting power of wool to the RUPES line up of pads for the very first time. It is engineered specifically for fast defect removal on all paint types using the RUPES HR81ML BigFoot Nano iBrid, and offers a number of distinct advantages compared to its foam-based equivalents. Firstly, the RUPES Nano iBrid Coarse Wool Polishing Pad has a lower surface area, which means it suffers less drag on sticky paint types and makes polishing them less of a chore. Secondly, it absorbs significantly less waste material as surfaces are compounded, which makes it much better suited for use on high yield surfaces such as OEM gelcoats.
