About This Kit
Professional detailers and hardcore enthusiasts love Hex-Logic polishing pads for their ease of use and superior results. The Hex-Logic Quantum Polishing Pad Kit comes with everything you need for full polishing detail jobs. The traditional 5.5?? size strikes the best balance of coverage and focused cutting power, and fits all standard 5? rotary and dual action hook and loop backing plates. Pick from the full lineup of Hex-Logic Quantum Pads for the best result on any paint finish, then keep the pads clean between passes with Chemical Guys Polishing Pad Cleaner. Old-school wool pads leave holograms in modern water-based paints and clear coat finishes. Modern Quantum Hex-Logic foam pads use premium high-density foams and cutting-edge pad designs for perfect results. Every paint finish is different, and one pad can rarely work on any given car. Choose from the full Hex-Logic color-coded system to find the best pad for the job. The unique sloped pad profile, center-cut vent hole, and breathable backing pad design ensure full pad contact with the surface and reduces friction wear and tear. Hex-Logic grooves in the face of the pad spread product evenly for fine finishing with less waste in less time. Professionals understand the importance of clean buffing pads, so they remove old polish and paint residue with Chemical Guys Polishing Pad Cleaner. The citrus-based formula breaks down old undesirable products, and keeps polishing pads in prime cutting condition. Take down scratches and swirls, restore gloss, and spread the perfect coat of wax with the 5.5?? Hex-Logic Quantum Polishing Pad Kit.
Quantum Hex-Logic Buffing Pads
Quantum Hex-Logic polishing pads represent the great leap forward in machine polishing design. Traditional buffing pad designs can?t take the physical stresses from polishing. Regular foam pads are prone to failures in the hook and loop backing system, internal foam breakdown, and burning and melting from high speed rotation. While old school rotary polishers spin on one axis and create even stresses across a buffing pad, modern dual action machines spin and oscillate and create extra stresses and strain. With dual action mechanisms oscillating between 2mm and 26mm, extra friction and torque strain on the foam can be immense. The pad?s center experiences the most torque stress and heat buildup, so venting the pad there eliminates the greatest tearing forces and heat that destroys pads and machines. Quantum engineers designed the new buffing pads with a Precision Port center-cut hole to reduce stresses and heat buildup in the center of the pad. New hook and loop backing material channels in fresh air through vented TORQ backing plates, and cools the polishing foam and machine polisher at the same time. Traditional foam pads have a recessed step-down profile from backing pad to foam buffing side; this design ensures the backing plate never touches the vehicle, but it is prone to wear from heavy-handed user input on the buffing machine. Quantum pads use a gradual Race Face tapered profile for one unbroken line from backing pad to foam buffing surface; this design spreads out any forces from the user pressing down on the machine and saves the pad from excess wear and tear. Quantum buffing pads are designed to be the best polishing pads for any professional or enthusiast detailer.
Polishing Pad Cleaner
Chemical Guys Polishing Pad Cleaner restores all types of machine polishing pads to brand-new cutting and polishing power. Without proper cleaning, buffing and polishing pads can cake up with dry polish and paint residue. Residue clogs polishing pads, which reduces their cutting ability and causes them to produce sub-par results. No matter the pad, chemical, or machine, use Chemical Guys Polishing Pad Cleaner to remove polish and paint residue, and restore pads to a like-new condition. Different polishing jobs require different combinations of machine polisher, polishing pad, and polishing compound. Body shop wet-sanding marks typically require heavy compound and wool cutting pads. Light swirls and scratches are removed with a foam cutting pad and swirl remover polish. Hard paint finishes may only be cut with microfiber cutting pads and a medium compound. Polishing Pad Cleaner works on all foam, microfiber, and wool buffing and polishing pads. Pad Cleaner rinses clean, leaves pads refreshed, and extends their useful life.
Hex-Logic Backing Material
Quantum buffing and polishing pads are designed, engineered, and manufactured in the United States. Every pad uses a hook-and-loop interface backing pad to attach to any machine polisher backing plate that uses the hook-and-loop material. This unique breathable backing material helps wick heat away through the attachment side and advanced vented backing plates like the TORQ R5 DA series and the TORQ22D vented backing plate. Cool pads last longer and produce more consistent and even polishing results. This backing pad is a perfect fit for any standard 5? backing plate, and leaves a quarter of an inch of the buffing pad to hang over all around. This recessed mounting system helps ensure that the backing plate and machine housing can never rub against the paintwork or the surface being polished. Quantum Pads help restore paintwork with a scratch-free shine, seal it with durable protection of a wax coating, and protect against scrapes and knocks with the machine polisher itself. Beware of cheap knockoffs and imitation buffing pad designs! Chemical Guys Quantum pads are patented and produced only with the highest grade foams, adhesives, and breathable backing pad materials. While cheaper foam pads melt and pull apart during polishing jobs, Quantum Pads last and last for dependable detailing use on even the most intense polishing jobs.
Color Coordinated Problem Solvers
Quantum polishing pads are made from the same high quality, even-cutting, and extremely durable foam as the classic Hex-Logic buffing pads. This tried-and-true material has given detailers around the world fast and consistent polishing results for years, and now they are given new shape and purpose with Quantum polishing pads. Follow the same color coding scheme to find the best Quantum polishing pad for every polishing job.
Clean Pads Work Better
Polishing pads fill up with spent polish abrasives and removed paint residues as the job wears on. This residue and removed paint clogs pads and causes inconsistent polishing work during a job. All these residues can also turn into a hard cement-like mass inside foam, microfiber, and wool buffing and polishing pads if left to dry, which ruins the polishing abilities of the pad. The secret to maintaining polishing pads for years of reliable use is in keeping them clean. Clean out old compound, particle abrasives, and removed paint residues to keep pads soft, flexible, and ready for controlled paint removal. Keep one set of polishing pads and clean then during the job to maintain maximum effect and shorter polishing times, or change out between several sets of pads for nonstop polishing and clean them all at the end of the day for faster turnaround time. Keep a bottle of Chemical Guys Polishing Pad Cleaner and Rejuvenator on hand to clean, restore and prolong your buffing and polishing pads. The ergonomically designed Foam Pad Cleaning Brush scrubs wax and polishes out of the foam and restores its original texture. Professionals polishing lots of cars in a shop setting benefit from the fast and thorough action of the Grit Guard Universal Pad Washer, which cleans and dries all types of buffing pads on virtually any machine in seconds.
