Car Polisher Pads | High Profile work with DA or rotary polishers

The car polisher pads designed for high-profile foam pads, can work with rotary and dual action polishers enabled with hook and loop attachment. The high-profile foam pad is distinguished from the low-profile foam pads in the thickness and material construction. The high-pro foam pad is thicker than the low-pro, while the low-pro foam pad uses EVA( Ethylene-vinyl acetate) in the foam pad. The high-profile foam pads use quality material and have a center cut and tapered edge to provide heat dissipation and safe contouring for professionally removing swirls, scratches, and oxidation.

What type of chemical compound should I use for a heavy-cutting?

If you are using the heavy-cutting foam pad, you may use a less abrasive compound since the foam pad offers aggressive cutting power.
