All the benefits of CCS Technology packed into low profile 5.5 inch pads.
The CCS Smart Pads™ Dual Action 5.5 inch Professional Foam Pads are smaller versions of our 6.5 inch DA foam pads. The low profile 5.5 inch buffing pads pack the same CCS technology and performance into a compact, highly effective size that works best with dual action polishers and air sanders. These pads are excellent for applying Wolfgang Total Swirl Remover 3.0 and Finishing Glaze 3.0.
CCS stands for Collapsed Cell Structure. CCS Technology is Lake Country’s innovative pad
design that saves product by controlling product release onto the work
surface. Dozens of dimples in the foam collect excess polish and reserve it
until it is needed on the pad’s face (the area that is in contact with the
paint). This design prolongs your working time and reduces product waste.
CCS Smart Pads™ work on every type
of paint, from conventional clear coats to the harder, scratch-resistant
clear coats used by Mercedes Benz and the Ford Motor Company. Lake Country's
range of foam compositions, combined with the right chemicals provides you
with a prescription to correct almost any paint imperfection on any paint
What are the
benefits of CCS Technology?
Slows rate of polish absorption – As discussed above, the pads are slow to absorb products and therefore the
paint benefits from a longer working time. The same is true of liquid waxes
Improves operator control –
CCS pockets gradually release polish as needed by the operator. Since these
areas are not absorbing polish, they serve as little reservoirs until the
excess polish is needed.
Prevents pad skipping – CCS
pockets reduce surface tension allowing the operator to run pad flat on a
working surface. Basically, the CCS pockets break up the smooth surface of
the foam to eliminate the sticking and skipping that occurs when two
perfectly flat surfaces meet.
Creates less heat – CCS
pockets provide several points where the foam is not completely
touching the paint. This reduces friction and therefore heat generated
between the pad and the paint.
OEM approved - OEM tests
confirm CCS pads out-perform convoluted pad designs.
CCS foam pads provide ample surface
contact to effectively work the paint. The CCS pockets are small so they
don't affect the amount of foam continuously touching the paint during
CCS Smart Pads 5.5 inch Professional Foam Pads give you maximum
maneuverability on your dual action polisher. Large foam pads tend to
bog down DA polishers, like the Porter Cable 7424. That’s why 6.5 inch pads
are the recommended size, but we’ve streamlined the dual action buffing pad
even more with the CCS Smart Pads™ Dual Action 5.5 inch Professional Foam
Pads. These compact pads give the dual orbiting head even greater freedom of
motion to help you work efficiently and effectively.
The CCS 5.5 inch Foam Pads are
also a perfect fit on orbital air sanders with a 5 inch backing plate.
Each CCS pad
features VELCRO brand hook and loop fasteners covering the entire back of
each pad to secure to a hook and loop backing p
Low Profile Cutting 5.5 inch Foam 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.
Orange Low Profile
Light Cutting 5.5 inch
Foam Pad - Firm, high density foam for scratch and defect
removal. Use this pad with polishes and swirl removers. It’s an all around
pad that will work on most light to moderate imperfections.
White Low Profile
Polishing 5.5 inch Foam
Pad - Less dense foam formula for the application of waxes,
micro-fine polishes and sealants. This pad has very light cutting power so
its perfect for pre-wax cleaners.
Profile Polishing/Finishing 5.5 inch Foam Pad
- Use this foam to apply one-step cleaner waxes. It is a balance of
polishing and finishing that is perfect for all-in-one product application.
Low Profile Finishing 5.5 inch Foam Pad - Composition is firm
enough to withstand added pressure during final finishing to remove buffer
swirls. It has no cut and will apply thin, even coats of waxes, sealants,
Low Profile Finessing 5.5 inch Foam Pad
– This blue foam pad has soft composition for applying glaze, finishing polish,
sealants, and liquid waxes. The soft pad has no cut, making it perfect for applying nonabrasive products evenly.
Low Profile Ultrasoft Wax/Sealant 5.5 inch Foam Pad - 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.
CCS Technology is the future of foam buffing pads. These
pads are easy to use, they improve operator control, they prevent product waste,
they reduce heat...CCS pads simply do more to improve detailing
To clean all foam pads: Mix a scoop of Wolfgang Polishing Pad Rejuvenator in 3-4 gallons of water before you begin detailing. When you're
finished with each pad, toss it in the mixture to soak. Mild agitation
with a Foam Conditioning Brush will release any polish residue. Rinse the
pads and lay them flat to dry. Lay the pads foam side down. If foam pads are
left to dry with the hook & loop facing down, water will settle where the hook &
loop is glued to the foam and it may affect the glue. For the best results,
