What are the best polishing pads to use?
Being confronted by red, white or yellow pads, coupled with foam, microfiber or wool makes it a difficult decision even before you look to purchase a suitable polishing compound for the job at hand.
A sheepskin or wool pad are highly aggressive pads used for cutting or heavy compounding and are perfect for removing extreme swirls or oxidation on very hard paint. These pads remove heavy oxidation much better than foam pads and generates less heat resulting in a cooler surface. That said, wool is also safer to use on heat sensitive parts of your car such as bumpers and spoilers. Be wary however that heavy handed use or an inexperienced operator can easily produce swirl and burn marks in the paint.
Foam cutting pads are used for non-aggressive cutting (moderate cut compared to wool pads) and are suitable for removing buffing swirls or trails, oxidation and scratches.
Foam polishing pads are used for paint cleaning, remove swirl marks, light scratches, fine sanding scratches, and other defects in your car's paint. Due to their composition and texture they are more forgiving to novice polishers yet still produce great results.
Foam finishing pads provides very little or no cut. They are designed for applying pure polish, wax, glazes, and sealant without marring the paint and produce a high gloss show car shine finish.
When choosing the proper pad for cutting or polishing, always make sure you match the aggressiveness of the compound/polish you are using with the aggressiveness of the pad. A mismatched combination creates unneeded work and waste your time and product, so make sure you have the right pad and polish for the job.
