Uber Foam Buffing Pads

Uber Yellow Pad 6.5 inch cutting compounding pad

We have been selling foam buffing padsfor 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: whatpad, 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 (compound/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)

Black pad = glaze/wax/sealant (80 PPI)

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


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.


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
  My order arrived very quickly, the several items were expertly packaged, and nothing was damaged. I decided to give this pad a try just to make sure I was not missing out on some great product. This yellow foam pad began to tear where the hook and loop meets the pad after polishing one car. I may get one more polishing job out of it before it tears completely. I will stick to using LC / CCS pads from now on.

  I use this pad primarily when I'm doing a full detail involving the use of compound. I find that this more aggressive pad does a better job than the orange pad if there are a good amount of swirls in the clearcoat. I either use Menzerna Super Intensive or Adams Severe and I have good results with both.
