4 Pack: Uber Foam Pad 4 inch

We have been selling foam buffing pads for some time now as well as using them on our personal and customers' cars. Even though I detail cars quite often I find myself asking: what pad, what color, and what product from time to time.

In an effort to better the product and more aptly serve my clients I added the following guidelines to the back of the pads.

The Uber Foam Pads now have the step (medium polish/polish/final polish/wax/sealant) stamped on the back of it.

Orange pad = medium polish (European Foam)

Green pad = polish (60 PPI)

Blue pad = glaze or final polish (70 PPI)

The other benefits to the Uber Foam Pads are highlighted below.

VELCRO TRIM

We have taken the extra step to evenly trim the Velcro loop back from the outer edge of the pad to prevent accidentalcontact with the paint that could cause $100's or possibly $1000's in damages. Check our enclosed sample againstyour current stock.

CRAFTSMANSHIP

Our pads our consistently crisply and cleanly cut. The side walls of the pad are perfectly straight down on every pad.Check your current pads and you will find inconsistent concaved sidewalls. This is due to incorrect cuttingprocedures. You will find every pad will look different.CONSISTENT QUALITY!

ADHESIVEA common problem with Velcro pads is the Velcro peeling off. We are using an adhesive that will never come off -ever. It is heat resistant, chemical resistant and 100% fully washable for multiple uses. There is no better value!

Helpful Hints and Tips:

Unlike wool pads, there are no blended foam buffing pads. Foam pads are 100% foam, but they performslightly different from each other on the basis of how they're constructed. Under a microscope, foam padslook like a bee's honeycomb, small uniformly shaped cells. The smaller the cells the more densely theconstruction, this type of foam pad would be considered less aggressive, thus it would be considered afinishing pad. The opposite effect takes place if the foam cells were larger, or less dense. This construction will causethe foam pad to be more aggressive, as in a compounding pad.

There are various grades of foam pads on either side of the aggressive or finishing scale. We make up to 4 gradesof foam pads; each represented by a different color. Early on, foam buffing pad colors were standardized, however,more colors were added to the mix and now there is a broad band or examples.

All of our pads are made of high strength reticulated foam. In other words, the cells are open; this allowsair to flow through the foam. Chemical compounds and polishes require the right amount of air flow through thefoam. Open cell foam is ideal for this process to succeed. Not only is closed cell foam not ideal, it is weaker structurally.

Customer Reviews
Great little pads!
  These are just as good as the 5.5"s and was kind of disappointed that they didn't have the black foam pad. This just means I'll have to get an extra blue one for now. Great for small areas too.

Exceeded my expectations
  Everything is great exceeded my expectation. Just makes everything much more easy. I need to order some more pads since my dog somehow only destroyed us

Perfect for small, tight panels
  Same great pads as the 5.5" Ubers but in a smaller version. They are prefect for tight areas where the 5.5" pads cant get to. I use them to correct B and C pillars as well under door handles, side mirrors around emblems, etc.
