Lake Country CCS Foam Pads are flat buffing pads that can be used with:circular polisher, dual-action polisher or even an electric drill.
What is CCS?
CCS pads utilize the latest in innovation and are very user friendly providing better control, less product waste, more accurate results and overall a better job.
CCS Foam Pads help reduce product waste. Lake Country has improved upon the basic pad design with CCS technology, which slows the rate of product absorption and saves polish. With conventional foam pads, polish is absorbed into the foam rather quickly. This reduces the working time with the polish and may give you disappointing results. A build-up of chemicals inside the foam will also cause the pad to dry out more rapidly.
|CCS stands for Collapsed Cell Structure. The face of a CCS pad is covered in strategically placed pockets. These pockets are locations where the foam cells have been closed. Polish does not absorb into these closed cell pockets, leaving more product on the pad's surface and on the paint. This polish-saving design gives polishes a longer working time, which results in more successful detailing.
CCS foam pads work on every type of paint, from conventional clear coats to the harder, scratch-resistant clear coats used by Mercedes Benz and the Ford Motor Company. Lake Country's range of foam compositions, combined with the right chemicals, provide you with a prescription to correct almost any paint imperfection on any paint finish.
What are the benefits of CCS Technology?
Slows rate of polish absorption As discussed above, the pads are slow to absorb products and therefore the paint benefits from a longer working time. The same is true of liquid waxes and sealants.
Improves operator control CCS pockets gradually release polish as needed by the operator. Since these areas are not absorbing polish, they serve as little reservoirs until the excess polish is needed.
Prevents pad skipping CCS pockets reduce surface tension allowing the operator to run pad flat on a working surface. Basically, the CCS pockets break up the smooth surface of the foam to eliminate the sticking and skipping that occurs when two perfectly flat surfaces meet.
Creates less heat CCS pockets provide several points where the foam is not completely touching the paint. This reduces friction and therefore heat generated between the pad and the paint.
OEM approved OEM tests confirm CCS pads out-perform convoluted pad designs.
