Choosing the Best Buffing Pads for the Job in Auto Detailing

 It is critical to use the proper backing plate and buffer pad. You should be able to obtain a strong Velcro backing plate, as well as Velcro foam padding and wool pads. Look for a backing plate with holes in it to help disperse heat from the paint's surface. Another cool design is the three-leaf clover, which has excellent gripping power as well as cooling qualities.

Make sure to buy foam pads that correspond to the holes on the backing plates. Look for a backing plate with a harder outer ring that is slightly beveled. This feature strengthens the plate and allows flexibility when buffing on the exterior step ribs of the hull. You will find that air circulation is much better on these types of pads than on 'waffle' type pads which tend to fling more product.

This is inefficient and creates a mess, resulting in more tape, clean-up, and a minor environmental issue if working on a yacht in a slip. These pads have a 'tight' hook and loop mechanism that can over-grab the Velcro on the back of the pad. If you're not cautious, you'll pull the felt back off the pad. As a result, we propose a backing plate with a looser or more spread-out pattern.

Unlike vehicles, which have a transparent coat that is 1 to 3 microns thick, a gel coat on a boat is 10 to 15 times thicker, and on more costly boats, it may be up to twenty times thicker. Read more:
