About Hex-Logic Polishing Pads
Professional detailers and hardcore enthusiasts love Hex-Logic polishing pads for their ease of use and superior results. The Hex-Logic Quantum Buffing Pad Sampler Kit comes with the most popular Hex-Logic Quantum pads used for full polishing detail jobs. Choose between the fan-favorite cutting, polishing, and finishing pads for the best result on any paint finish, then clean the pads 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 clean polishing results. Every paint finish is different, and one pad can rarely work on any given car. The Hex-Logic Quantum Buffing Pad Sampler Kit covers cutting, polishing, and finishing jobs for most enthusiast and professional detailers. Cut away swirls and scratches with the Orange Quantum Pad and abrasive compound, restore gloss and shine with the White Quantum Pad and finishing polish, then spread the perfect coat of wax or sealant with the Black Quantum Pad.
The unique sloped pad profile and center-cut vent hole 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 in less time and with less product waste. 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 and releases old polishing abrasives that clog buffing pads to keep the foam in prime cutting condition. The standard 5.5’’ / 125mm polishing pads are best suited for use with traditional 8mm throw orbital machines, and any 5’’ / 125mm dual-action or rotary backing plate.
Get familiar with the refined working action of the Hex-Logic Quantum buffing pad lineup, and take on any polishing job with the 5.5’’ / 125mm Hex-Logic Quantum Buffing Pad Sampler 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 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.
Hex-Logic Backing Material
Hex-Logic 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 every machine polisher backing plate sold by Chemical Guys. Cool pads last longer and produce more consistent and even polishing results. This backing pad is a perfect fit for every standard backing plate, and leaves a quarter of an inch of the buffing pad to hang over all around. This beveled edge helps ensure that the backing plate and machine housing can never rub against the paintwork or the surface being polished. Hex-Logic 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 Hex-Logic pads are patented and produced only with the highest grade foams, durable adhesives, and backing pad materials. While cheaper foam pads melt and pull apart during polishing jobs, Hex-Logic Pads last and last for dependable detailing use on even the most intense polishing jobs.
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.
