Types of Wool
4 Ply 100% Twisted Wool
Each strand of high grade wool fiber is tightly twisted, allowing our pad to stay at a consistent level of aggression for longer periods of operation.
50/50 Wool Acrylic
A unique fiber combination for light compounding, comprised of 50% 4 ply twisted wool and 50% single strand wool/acrylic blend. Allows the operator to accomplish a range of light compounding to heavier polishing tasks depending on the compound or polish used.
Electrified White Sheepskin
The electrification process removes the microscopic barbs from the hairs in the wool resulting in a soft and effective compounding material that does not scratch the painted surface.
Twisted Ply 40/60 Wool Acrylic
Each tuft is comprised of 40% wool and 60% acrylic. The result is less load up of compound, less scratching and cooler running temperature.
Constructed of 100% wool knitted into a synthetic backing. This backing is more durable than natural backing material, allowing for more washings. The knitting process also results in a denser pad with a plush appearance.
Wool/Acrylic Blend - Knitted
Constructed of a blend of lambs wool and acrylic fibers knitted into a synthetic backing. Slightly less aggressive than 100% wool. The backing is more durable than natural backing materials, permitting more washings. The knitting process also results in a denser pad with a plush appearance.
What is Foamed Wool?
Patented nanofoam process encapsulates the base of the lambswool fibers with microscopic polyfoam particles.
- Performance - Cuts like natural sheepskin but finishes like a foam pad. Aggresively removes P1500 grit scratches, leaving a lustrous finish with no hazing by reducing compounding swirls.
- Dense Body - Foamed fibers resist caking and matting.Foaming process also creates minute air pockets at the base of the fibers, which improves cushioning and retention of compounds and polishes.
- Consistent Quality - Manufacturing process produces a uniform material, resulting in consistent pad performance ... unlike performance reducing variances that can occur with natural sheepskin pads.
- Minimal Linting - Foaming process locks in the lambswool fibers, significantly reducing linting.
- Appearance - Distinctive color for easy identification.
