What happens when you combine the lean, mean, paint-polishing machine known as the Flex XC3401 with the versatile Lake Country Hydro-Tech pads? Perfect paint – that’s what! The Flex XC3401 Hydro-Tech Essentials Pad Kit is the result of countless hours listening and taking notes from fellow Auto Geeks via phone, live support, email, and of course our online discussion forum – AutogeekOnline.net - gathering input for what our loyal customers would consider to be the perfect Flex XC3401 polishing kit. By combining Lake Country Hydro-Tech pads with Wolfgang Pad Werks pad care products and a host of other essential buffing and polishing accessories, we’re confident the Flex XC3401 Hydro-Tech Essentials Pad Kit will fulfill all your paint-polishing needs.
What’s the big deal about Lake Country Hydro-Tech pads? Simply put, Hydro-Tech pads cut more while finishing better than conventional open-cell foam pads. This is made possible by the closed-cell European foam that keeps the product on the face of the pad, where it belongs. While Lake Country Hydro-Tech pads were primarily designed for water-based polishes, they work equally well with liquid and paste waxes, sealants, cleaner waxes, and anything else that can be machine-applied to make your paint gleam!
The FLEX XC3401 Hydro-Tech Essentials Pad Kit includes:
|FLEX XC3401 VRG Orbital Polisher Variable Speed Polisher - The orbital rotation of the FLEX Polisher simulates the circular movement of the human hand while polishing. This motion is less likely to cause holograms than a rotary buffer. At the same time, the polisher's highly smooth running facilitates a careful, precise finish and allows for hologram-free polishing. The positive drive ensures a uniform movement, even under load, thanks to constant lift. Taken in conjunction with the large stroke length the FLEX can remove existing holograms from black finishes. The large stroke length refers to the size of the orbit. On many dual action polishers, this is a very small distance and therefore you feel a jiggling motion. On the FLEX polisher, the stroke length is 8 mm, a huge distance in terms of orbital polishers! The FLEX Dual-Action Polisher has a true dual action motion that reduces vibration. The FLEX Orbital Polisher’s smooth acceleration and uniform, controlled motion make this DA machine ideal for novices and pros alike. The FLEX XC3401 dual action polisher comes with a 5.5 Inch Hook & Loop Backing Plate and a 1 year manufacturer warranty.|
|FLEX XC3401 Mini 4 3/8 Backing Plate - The FLEX XC 3401 VRG Mini Backing Plate is 4 3/8 inches in diameter and allows you to use 5 or 5.5 inch pads with your FLEX XC3401 polisher. The plate is designed specifically for this polisher, and creates the forced rotation that sets the FLEX apart from other dual action buffers. The included 5 1/2 x 7/8 inch Hydro-Tech pads are a perfect match for this backing plate.|
|How To Properly Use Flex Polishers DVD - Learn how to master the complete line of Flex polishers with the How to Properly Use Flex Polishers DVD! Learn from the expert himself, Mike Phillips, as he goes over the various dual action and rotary polishers manufactured by Flex Power Tools. Mike Phillips provides an in-depth look at all three Flex polishers while providing you with invaluable tips and techniques on how to achieve flawless paint with your newfound favorite Flex dual action or rotary polisher.|
|(2) 5 1/2 x 7/8 inch Cyan Advanced Cutting Foam - The blue foam is designed for compounding and swirl removal. This closed cell pre-polymer foam restores oxidized and heavily swirled paint. Looks can be deceiving; the blue pad looks coarse but actually finishes with no marring. You'll achieve an almost wax-ready finish in one step. That's another way the Lake Country Hydro-Tech 5.5 Inch Foam Pads save you time.|
|(2) 5 1/2 x 7/8 inch Tangerine Ultra Polishing Foam - The tangerine foam is made for light to moderate defect removal and polishing. It has the cutting power just below that of the Lake Country orange light cutting pad, and the tangerine pad leaves a finish like you'd achieve with a gray finishing pad.|
|(1) 5 1/2 x 7/8 inch Crimson Finishing Foam - The crimson foam is designed to apply waxes, glazes, and sealants in flawless, even coats without causing swirls. The soft foam has very light polishing ability, making it a great choice for cleaner waxes, too. Since the crimson pad is made of Hydro-Tech foam, it does not soak up liquid waxes and paint sealants like some finishing pads can. You'll be able to cover more paint with less product.|
|(2) Microfiber Bonnets - Each bonnet is made of the softest blend of microfiber available! Strong, durable polyester makes up 70 percent while soft, silky polyamide makes up the other 30 percent. Incredibly small fibers are woven together in a split weave that softer, thicker, and plusher than flat weave microfibers. These bonnets fit comfortably over any of the included 5 1/2 inch Hydro-Tech foam pads.|
|16 oz. Wolfgang Pad Werks Polishing Pad Cleaner - Cleaning your pads removes all kinds of chemicals that have been embedded into them during the buffing process. This can include all types of solvents, carrying agents, abrasives, petroleum distillates, silicones, chemical cleaners and other nasty substances. Removing the liquids and the solids that build up both on and inside of your buffing pads preserves their integrity.|
|16 oz. Wolfgang Pad Werks Polishing Pad Conditioner - Brand new pads and dry, clean used pads tend to be more stiff and coarse until they break-in. Wolfgang Pad Werks Polishing Pad Conditioner accelerates the break-in time to bring the pad up to maximum buffing performance. Using Wolfgang Pad Werks Polishing Pad Conditioner on a fresh pad ensures maximum performance from the pad and the polish or compound. Its advanced lubricating agents enable compounds to work longer and polish to wipe off easier.|
|Foam Pad Conditioning Brush - The Edge Foam Pad Conditioning Brush removes excess, caked polish and restores the usable texture to your foam pads in seconds. An angled handle and textured grip give you excellent leverage as you press the brush against a spinning pad. Don’t stop working – clean the pad and keep polishing!|
|2 Microfiber Detailing Towels, 16 x 16 inches - These versatile microfiber towels are great for any variety of detailing tasks, from general washing and scrubbing off road contaminants, to applying and buffing off wax and all-in-one protectants. All the Cobra Detailing Towels boast an 80/20 polyester/polyamide blend in a special “feather” weave that increases their absorption properties, guaranteeing high performance and durability.|
