We recommend applying minimal pressure and dialing the polisher speed to 3 as a start before you progress with higher speeds for effective cutting. What we love about the microfibre pads is its versatility. This enables it to be used for both cutting and polishing. One of its other advantage over cutting foam pads is the ability to remove fine swirls more effectively where the foam pad struggles to reach the embedded swirls unless done with multiple passes.
A combination of both foam and Microfibre pads will give you the flexibility and resource to call upon when tackling different situations. Our Microfibre pads comprise a layer of our German foam which acts to contour to the surface of your vehicle as your pass the polisher over the panel with the microfibre component sitting on top that layer. Our pads come in 5.5' and 6.5' diameters to suit the 5' and 6' backing pads respectively.
