About this deal
Versatility : Versatility is what ultimately sets this buffing pad kit apart from its competitors. From heavy-cut to fine-cut pads, this kit includes everything you could possibly need for buffing and polishing a car. The kit even includes a finishing pad and a woolen polishing pad. The least abrasive of them all, finishing pads are great for finer details and provide light touches to a car that doesn’t need more substantial work (or already had it). This type of buffing pad is made for applying sealants and waxes and is soft enough to not cause any sanding, scraping, or even light scratches to the paint surface, but strong enough to buff these layers in.
Each year, we test over 350 auto products on vehicles and in our testing lab. Our team of product testers thoroughly researches top products, unboxes and puts our hands on each component, and tests the items on real vehicles before making recommendations to readers. Durability : While we had little to no concerns about durability during and after the testing process, these pads were just shy of obtaining a perfect score for this testing category. The inclusion of buffing pad-specific cleaner is the only reason why these buffing pads don’t have a 5-star durability score. These pads are machine washable but should be air-dried. What Customers Are Saying Versatility : This buffing pad kit was one of the most versatile that we researched or tested. With seven different pads to choose from, our review team was able to do everything professional detailers would be able to do – from removing severe scratches and oxidation to spreading glazes and sealant across a sensitive paint finish. Since they’re microfiber pads, scratching, swirls, streaks, and smudges won’t be a concern. This is also a safe bet for buyers in need of interior polishing pads, as they can be used to apply other cleansers and conditioners inside of a car and work great for dusting as well.
We have a comprehensive range of car polishing pads for use on dual action, rotary polishers & by hand from the worlds leading manufactures. Keeping your car exterior clean is a great way to take care of the aesthetic of your car as well as its longevity. Follow our step by step guide. Durability : By design, polishing pads will be less durable than buffing pads. Buffing pads are meant to be rough and abrasive, to an extent, while polishing pads are all about softness and light touches. We experienced some loss of wool fibers throughout our testing process. What Customers Are Saying Quality : This buffing pad kit has some of the highest quality pads that we tested, second only to Chemical Guys buffing pads. We don’t think you’ll have any complaints about the quality and effectiveness of these buffing pads.
Versatility : This buffing kit is certainly versatile, and the pads included will undoubtedly allow you to fully and effectively complete the buffing process. The only reason this kit doesn’t have a perfect score for this testing category is because there are a few more comprehensive options available. Of the many power tools responsible for buffing, sanding, and cleaning a car, polishing pads are an essential part of the relevant tools functioning properly. Even without a dual-action polisher or rotary polisher, manual jobs still need some kind of disc or microfiber finishing pad to ensure an appearance that’s shiny and free of swirl marks and scratches. Polishing pads are crucial for buffing, waxing, and sanding cars
Viking’s soft foam pads are meant to be used manually for applying wax and polish. The squishy, moldable texture makes them great buffing pads that can conform to the surface that the sealant or coating is being rubbed and are safe enough to use on a pain surface or clear coat that doesn’t need to be polished down. Versatility : One of the most important characteristics of a buffing pad is how much of the buffing process it can effectively work for. Kits with numerous different applicator pads for buffing, cutting, and polishing scored highest in this category. Choosing your car polishing pads can be a little daunting if you haven't used any before. To keep things simple, we would say 2 or 3 pads from the same manufacturer with different "cut levels". This will give you everything you need to remove 80% of car swirls and light scratches in an easy 2/3 step process. If they have matching compounds, even better. Don't worry about the different brands colours or shapes at this time, personal preference depending on the paintwork you are working on will come into play once you hone in your skill. A team member used each buffing pad with a cordless drill and an orbital polisher, specifically the TORQX Random Orbital Polisher . During the testing process, our review team took note of each buffing pad’s performance against the following criteria:Great quality as you would expect from Lake country,” wrote a reviewer. “I researched countless hours to make sure my money went to the right place for my business and these orange polishing pads no doubt take the top prize. You'll waste your money on anything else.” I have been detailing cars for many years and had heard of the system and finally bought it,” began one reviewer. “It is flawless, no swirls or hologram effects, and I use Collinite Insulator Wax #845 afterward for protection… I’ve never seen anything like this; I’m still amazed by the fifth car. I totally recommend this system.”
