-6" Foam Face with 5" Velcro Backing.
Buff and Shine's Uro-Tec pads will work great with virtually any polisher, but will be especially favored by those detailing technicians who prefer long-throw or long-stroke DA polishers (RUPES Polishers). Uro-Tec pads are perfectly balanced for these specific types of polishers. This balance reduces vibration and pad "hopping", which leads to superior contact with the polishing surface, which increases polishing efficiency.
Uro-Tec pads are made with high-quality reticulated (open cell) euro foam of a higher density that will reduce the pad softening that some technicians have experienced during heavy use with these machines. This is because the open cell construction helps to disperse heat during use.
The center hole of the Uro-Tec pads also helps with pad heat by providing a cooling chamber for excess heat to escape while the pad is working on the surface. The heat travels up the center hole and then dissipates into the open cells of the foam. This heat transfer action allows longer working time. The center hole of the pads can also help with visually aligning the pad onto backing plates that have a similar center hole.
The dimensions of the Uro-Tec pads are designed to maximize buffing and polishing efficiency. The backing diameter is 5" to fit perfectly onto long-stroke DA polishers. The 1" pad thickness provides a perfect balance between stiffness, providing consistent contact across the pad face with larger flat panels, and flexibility, allowing the technician to maneuver the pad into body contours. Because of their beveled design, the working area is actually 1" larger in diameter than the base and thus provides a larger working area than a squared-off design.
