The ultimate machine polishing pads for paint restoration and correction, our Professional Series No.23 Medium Polishing Pads are capable of removing the most common defects found in detailing such as scratches, light-medium swirl marks and heavy paint oxidation.
Paintwork correction using an abrasive machine polishing pad and a medium cutting compound is a process designed to level down the surfaces of paint or clear coat layers around defects and blemishes. This is achieved 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 Medium Polishing Pad has medium abrasive characteristics to complement your compound and allow this process to be completed quickly, safely and more 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.
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 daily professional use. These pro-grade pads also feature strong hook and loop fastener backings to suit all professional machine polishers fitted with a 5-inch backing plate, including our DPX Machine Polisher and MPX Dual Action Machine Polisher.
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 which may stop you achieving the best professional results.
When paired with our Professional Series No.23 Medium Polishing Compound, our Professional Series No.23 Medium Polishing Pads offer the ultimate detailers combo for paint correction and common defect removal.
