The Auto Finesse Professional Pad System is an extra special selection of 140mm machine polishing pads devised for nothing less than industry-leading results. Developed to tackle every facet of paint correction - from cutting right through to finishing - ProPads are available in three easily identifiable configurations (Cutting - purple pads, Polishing - teal pad and Finishing - grey pad), and packaged in pairs to ensure that you're never without a fresh replacement for your trusty machine polisher. 

The best machine polishing pads for paint restoration and heavy-duty correction, our Professional Series No.36 Heavy Cutting Pads are ideal for use on heavily-weathered paintwork and capable of removing the harshest defects such as deep scratches and heavy swirl marks.

Developed alongside our Professional Series Compounds, and specifically designed to complement their use over multiple paint correction stages, our range of Professional Series Machine Polishing Pads are the culmination of over 3 years of testing and development, both in-house and by over 25 professional detailers around the world.

Each pad is constructed from premium open cell foam which is designed to work abrasive compounds through quickly and effectively, while actively collecting and locking away spent compound residues for more efficient polishing and superior results. This advanced foam material offers the highest tensile strength and increased elasticity for extreme durability, making our Professional Series Machine Polishing Pads tough enough to withstand the rigours of repeated professional use time and time again. These pro-grade pads also feature strong hook and loop fastener backings to suit a professional machine polisher fitted with a 5-inch backing plate.

For increased control when polishing around sensitive trim, each Professional Series Machine Polishing Pad is slightly tapered back and features a chamfered edge to help avoid any unwanted contact. Our Pro Series Pads also benefit from a central recess to help cut out the risk of compound clogging interfering with achieving sublime professional results.

Heavy cutting using an abrasive machine polishing pad and a coarse cutting compound is a process designed to level down the surfaces of paint or clear coat layers around harsh defects and deep blemishes. This is achieved by by cutting away a portion of the entire top layer until the defect disappears, leaving behind a smoother, more level surface that’s ready for further refinement down to flawless. Our Professional Series Heavy Cutting Pad has coarse abrasive characteristics allowing this process to be completed quickly, safely and effectively. For more on the science of machine polishing, including how compounds and pads can be used to achieve a flawless finish, see our article – The Basic Guide To Machine Polishing.

When paired with our Professional Series No.36 Heavy Cutting Compound, our No.36 Heavy Cutting Pad offers the ultimate detailers combo for heavy restoration work. This product can also be used to increase the bite of our Professional Series No.23 Medium Polishing Compound.

Colour coded purple for easy identification in your detailing kit, our Professional Series No.36 Heavy Cutting Pads are supplied in packs of two and form a part of our wider Professional Series range of compounds and machine polishing pads. To find out more about these advanced products, see our article - The Auto Finesse Professional Series Range.

To cater for subsequent machine polishing processes as part of a 3-stage correction detail, our No.23 Medium Polishing Pads and No.15 Fine Finishing Pads are also available, along with a full range of Professional Series Hand Polishing Pucks.
