NEXT… Choosing the correct pads…

Pads for Random Orbital & Gear Driven polishers

The newest offering from RUPES is the high performance D-A series which is compatible with both Random Orbital and Gear Driven polishers. They feature a reduced pad height for more effective defect removal and a contoured profile to maintain safe operation near edges.

Benefits: The coarse pad can remove mild to severe defects while being less aggressive than wool on surfaces. A higher gloss finish can be achieved with the fine & ultra-fine pads.

Formats: D-A Coarse, D-A Fine & D-A Ultra-Fine

Sizes: 100mm, 150mm & 180mm

Compatible with: LHR21ES, LHR21 III, LHR75E & LK900

Wool pads are often the pad of choice for marine polishing as they offer moderate (medium) to severe (coarse) defect removal and increased cutting power over foam pads. This is especially important while working with large surfaces and can reduce the time spent on each area.

Benefits: The coarse pad can remove severe defects more efficiently than foam pads. The medium pad offers a more flexible backing and longer fibres for a better finish while still be effective on moderate defects.

Formats: Coarse Wool & Medium Wool

Sizes: 100mm, 150mm & 180mm (also available in 40mm & 70mm for intricate detailing with the iBrid Nano)

Compatible with: LHR21ES, LHR21 III, LHR75E & LK900

Formats: Rotary Coarse, Rotary Fine & Rotary Ultra-Fine

Sizes: 150mm, 180mm & 200mm
