|Small foam pads that attach to your electric drill- perfect for spot polishing!|
At 1.25 inches thick, CCS Spot Buffs 4 Inch Foam Pads are a full 30% thicker than the Low Profile Spot Buffs. The thicker foam provides a larger cushion between the backing plate and your paint when using a polisher or drill for paint correction.
You’ve babied your vehicle from the day you drove it away from the dealership…monthly waxes, weekly washes. But eventually it will get a scratch. Your perfect vehicle ruined by one little blemish! You try to remove it by hand, but it’s just too deep. You need to use a polisher, but you’re afraid of abrading the paint around the scratch. The pads on your polisher are 6.5” and the scratch is only about 3”. What can you do to spare the rest of your paint?
Lake Country’s CCS 4 inch Foam Pads are flat full contact buffing pads that work with your circular polisher, dual-action polisher or electric drill to correct problem areas in automotive paint more easily than ever before.
The smaller polishing surface means you’re only attacking the blemish, not the surrounding paint. Scratches and oxidation often occur in particular spots on your vehicle. Rarely is your whole vehicle covered in blemishes. If the majority of your vehicle looks like new, there’s no need to compound the whole thing. In fact you might cause swirls if you use an overly abrasive pad on perfectly good paint. With Spot Buffs, you are only addressing the problem, not creating new ones.
CCS stands for Collapsed Cell Structure. The face of a CCS pad is covered in strategically placed pockets. These pockets are locations where the foam cells have been closed. Polish does not absorb into these closed cell pockets, leaving more product on the pad's surface and on the paint. This polish-saving design gives polishes a longer working time, which results in more successful detailing.
All pads feature Velcro® brand hook & loop fasteners to secure the pad to the backing plate.
The beauty of Spot Buffs is that you don’t even need a polisher to polish out small swirls and scratches. A special drill adapter screws into your drill and your 2 ¾” backing plate. The plate has hook & loop for quick pad changes, just like standard backing plates. Spot Buffs are recommended for 12 or 18V electric and cordless drills with an output no greater than 3000 rpm. Because those rpm’s are concentrated into such a small surface, too many rpm’s will increase the risk of burning paint. On a low speed, this is extremely unlikely.
Likewise, when using Spot Buffs on a circular polisher, do not use them in excess of 1000 rpm. A dual-action polisher has a varied motion so you can afford to set it slightly higher, between 3 and 4.
CCS Spot Buffs come in the same varieties as our other varied contact foam pads and are just as effective. Read below to see what types of foam will work best for your vehicle.
Spot Buffs are a great value. They work like the bigger pads, but they are made to handle individual blemishes. If you only have a few isolated scratches, there’s no need to buy an expensive polisher and over-sized pads. Spot Buffs attach to your electric drill using the special adapter so you get powerful polishing action at a reasonable price. Plus these pads are concave in the middle to prevent splatter. You don’t waste products!
CCS Yellow Cutting Foam 4” Pad -
Use this pad to
apply compounds or polishes to remove severe oxidation, swirls, and
scratches. It is the most aggressive and should only be used on oxidized and
older finishes. Always follow this pad with an orange or white pad and a
fine polish to refine the paint until it is smooth.
CCS Orange Light Cutting Foam 4" Pad
- This is an excellent, high density foam with
light cutting power. It works well for applying microfine compounds and
smoothing scratches and swirls. You’ll want to try this pad first before
using the yellow pad; you always want to use the least abrasive pad
necessary for the job.
Polishing Foam 4" Pad - This pad features high absorption foam
for the application of waxes, polishes and sealants. This pad has very
little cutting power and works well for application purposes. It’s made of
soft, porous foam so it’s gentle on your paint. They’re also perfect for
polishing metal wheels, bumpers, and mirror covers.
CCS Gray Finishing Foam 4" Pad -
Composition is firm enough to withstand added pressure during final
finishing to remove buffer swirls, but it is gentle enough to buff your
vehicle to an attractive luster. Use with machine glaze or finishing polish.
All Purpose Foam 4” Pad – This is a multi-purpose pad used for
applying glazes, polishes, and waxes. It’s made of closed-cell foam that
will distribute a thin, even layer. The foam has no cut and is dense enough
to spread paste waxes.
CCS Red Ultrasoft Wax/Sealant Foam 4” - This soft, imported foam is ideal for applying the
final coat of wax or sealant. The foam works especially well when applying
liquid waxes or sealants because it is firm enough to keep the majority of
the product on the paint, rather than soaking it up. The red foam has no cut
or cleaning ability.
If you already own a circular or dual-action polisher, Spot Buffs allow you to tackle small blemishes without abrading the surrounding paint.
If your paint looks good, don’t put it through unnecessary polishing or compounding. Save time and effort by addressing only the problem area with 4” Spot Buffs.
