Lake Country Hydro-Tech Pad Aggressiveness Chart

Lake Country Hydro-Tech Foam Pads

Lake Country' s Hydro-Tech Foam Pads were designed specifically for the application of water-based polishes and compounds. However they work exceptionally well with traditional, oil based polishing liquids as well! With Lake Country Hydro-Tech Foam Pads, any polish will work longer and you use less.

Lake Country Hydro-Tech Foam Pads are made of imported European pre-polymer foam that features a closed cell construction. This long-wearing, high quality foam is less absorbent in order to keep the majority of polish on the pad's surface. The Lake Country Hydro-Tech Foam Pads accomplish defect removal and finishing in just one step. Each foam delivers a great finish for the amount of paint correction it can achieve! You could almost think of these pads as all-in-one polishing and finishing pads.

  • SLOW RATE OF POLISH ABSORPTION- Closed cell foam reduces polish absorption into the pad.
  • REDUCED NUMBER OF PADS- Polish stays on the surface of the pad for easy and quick clean-up of polish residue.
  • REDUCED TYPE OF PADS- Each Hydro-Tech Pad leaves an excellent finish for the amount of cut produced. offers Lake Country Hydro-Tech pads in all three foam types:
  • Cyan Advanced Cutting Foam - The pale blue colored cyan foam is designed for compounding and swirl removal. This closed cell pre-polymer foam restores oxidized and heavily swirled paint. Looks can be deceiving; the cyan pad looks coarse but actually finishes with little-to-no marring.
  • Tangerine Ultra Polishing Foam - The tangerine foam is made for light to moderate defect removal and polishing. It has the cutting power just below that of the Lake Country orange light cutting pad, and the tangerine pad leaves a finish like you'd achieve with a gray finishing pad.
  • Crimson Finishing Foam - The crimson foam is designed to apply waxes, glazes, and sealants in flawless, even coats without causing swirls. The soft foam has very light polishing ability, making it a great choice for cleaner waxes, too. Since the crimson pad is made of Hydro-Tech foam, it does not soak up liquid waxes and paint sealants like some finishing pads can. You'll be able to cover more paint with less product.
