TurboBuff Compound Pad and TurboBuff Polishing Pads were designed in conjunction with an automotive restoration professional to meet the buffing needs of the automotive industry. The primary goal was to produce a buffing pad that worked more efficiently while generating less heat.
The solution developed was to add REAR-FACING FINS that force air through the open cell structure of the foam buffing pad. These unique fins aid in cooling the buffing pad thus preventing overheating
BUT AS AN EXTRA BONUS, the fin design also amazingly works compound into the surface while directing compound back to the center of the buffing pad for re-use. This saves on compound use and also greatly reduces buffing time! From customer feedback, we've learned that the TurboBuff Pads are surprisingly long-lasting! For the price per uses, you're getting a high-end buffing bad for a great price!
TurboBuff Compound and Polishing Pad Advantages over Competitors' Pads
► 4X more efficient than competitors' buffing pads
► 2X thicker, so the pad lasts 2X longer
► Fins force air through the pad, keeping it cooler
► Fins allow buffing pad to conform to auto body
► Fins force compound to buffing pad center
► Uses 1/4 the compound as other buffing pads
► Runs flat on the surface with no dishing effect
► Significantly reduces buffing times
► Reusable & long-lasting buffing pad
► Takes less effort and work to hold the buffer
► The high conformability of the pad eliminates the need of taping edge, handles, and other areas.
► Runs 40-50 degrees cooler (see chart below)
*These are actual °F temperature test readings taken after 3 minutes of buffing a 12”x18” area. The buffer ran at 1500 RPM with each buffing pad type receiving the same initial amounts of water, compound & type. (see chart below)
