Foam Polishing Pads | 5″/6″ Low Profile for cutting, finishing

These foam polishing pads are designed for low-profile foam pads, meeting the specific needs of long-throw dual-action polishers. The EVA ( Ethylene-vinyl acetate), a rubber foam inserted in the pad, provides heat and pressure absorption, further assisted by the center cut and tapered edge, allowing for heat dissipation while providing smooth contouring on small areas and curves. The foam polishing pads are color-coded for specific detailing tasks: Cutting (Green), Polishing (Yellow), and Finishing (Red), designed for professionally removing heavy swirl marks, scratches, and any chemical oxidation remaining on the car surfaces. You can clean, wash, and reuse them.
