New Microfiber Pads

LC Microfiber 1

Thousands of hours of research and countless design changes have led to the production of Lake Country Ultra-Fiber Microfiber Pads! Lake Country Ultra-Fiber Microfiber Pads utilize the latest in microfiber technology to provide a single design that can be used for compounding and polishing! Lake Country Ultra-Fiber Microfiber Pads are manufactured using ultra-bond adhesive technology to ensure the pads don’t delaminate, even after countless uses. Lake Country Ultra-Fiber Microfiber Pads are available in two configurations for dual action and rotary polishers.

What are the benefits of microfiber pads versus foam pads for compounding and polishing? It’s quite simple, actually. Microfiber pads are constructed of thousands of strands of microfiber and these fibers provide more cut because they’re actually a form of abrasive. Lake Country Ultra-Fiber Microfiber Pads take this concept a step further by utilizing microfiber loops that are more plush and more dense compared to other microfiber pads. These fibers are sewn closer together which means the Ultra-Fiber Microfiber Pads cut more, finish nicer, and more importantly, last longer.

Two Designs – Dual Action & Rotary – The rotation of a dual action polisher versus a rotary polisher affects the polishing action of a microfiber pad. To compensate for this difference Ultra-Fiber Microfiber Pads are available in two configurations for both polisher types. Ultra-Fiber Microfiber Pads for dual action polishers are thinner and made with a special cross-linked polyethylene core for maximum cutting and polishing ability, but flexible enough to adapt to curves and contours. Ultra-Fiber Microfiber Pads for rotary polishers are made with a special reticulated foam core designed to disperse heat that occurs with rotary polishing. This thick foam core also provides excellent flexibility for contoured surfaces.

A polisher that gives you the best of both worlds


The Makita BO6040 is one of the most versatile polishers available! With the click of a switch, the BO6040 changes from an orbital polisher to a forced rotation orbital polisher. This means you can use the BO6040 for finish sanding or aggressive swirl and defect removal. The Makita BO6040 6.5 inch Pad Kit takes the versatility of the BO6040 a step further by including a host of Lake Country pads and other essential accessories to get you started.

The Makita BO6040 replaces two machines, making it a great value. If you do not currently own a buffer, or you are not sure if your vehicle’s scratches will come out with an ordinary dual-action polisher, the Makita BO6040 is an excellent choice. Start out with the random orbital setting and a low-cut polish. The general rule is if your fingernail catches the scratch, you’ll need to do some compounding to totally remove it. If the random orbital setting is not working, just turn the machine off, turn the orange knob, and turn the polisher back on. The orbital motion with forced rotation will level the scratch until it is completely eliminated.

New Lake Country Hydro-Tech Crimson Finishing Pad

Hydro-tech Crimson Finishing Pad and DP Poli-Coat

Lake Country has added a new pad to their Hydro-Tech line-up: Crimson Finishing Foam. So far, we have the 6.5 inch pad in stock. It’s perfect for wax, sealant and glaze application using your dual action polisher. Purchase it alone or in our Hydro-Tech 6.5 Inch Foam Pad 3 Pack.

Lake Country Hydro-Tech 6.5 Inch Foam Pads are made of imported European pre-polymer foam. This long-wearing, high quality foam is less absorbent in order to keep the majority of polish on the pad’s surface. You’ll experience a longer working time with your water-based polishes and compounds, resulting in less product used to achieve the perfect finish.

Water-based products can soak into some foam pads like, well, water. That requires you to keep reapplying polish to the pad. With Lake Country Hydro-Tech 6.5 Inch Foam Pads, water-based products work longer and you use less. You’ll save time and polish!

NEW! Lake Country 5 1/2 x 7/8 Inch Flat Foam Pads

Lake Country 5 1/2 x 7/8 inch Flat Foam Pads are a new take on a classic buffing pad. Lake Country’s flat 6.5 inch foam pads set the standard for dual action buffing pads. Now they’re available in these smaller, slimmer 5 1/2 x 7/8 inch pads. These pads have the flat, full contact work surface plus a curved edge. 

A lot of you have told us that you prefer the smaller 5 1/2 inch pads when polishing with the Porter Cable 7424 or 7424XP, especially since automakers are moving towards harder paint. The small pad feels lighter and less cumbersome for a dual action polisher than the thicker 6.5 inch pads. You can work more efficiently to get the results you want.

The difference between these pads and the 6.5 inch pads, besides the size, is the shape. The Lake Country 5 1/2 x 7/8 inch Flat Foam Pads have a beveled edge, more like the 4 inch foam pads. The beveled edge enables you tilt the polisher slightly to cut in close to mirrors or emblems without digging a sharp edge of foam into the paint. Do you see those vehicles on the road with buffer marks down the side? That can happen when you inadvertently put more pressure on one side of the pad. That won’t happen with Lake Country 5 1/2 x 7/8 inch Flat Foam Pads because there’s no real “edge”. You’re getting faster, more efficient pads with an added safety feature when you buy Lake Country 5 1/2 x 7/8 inch Flat Foam Pads.

The pads come in the five varieties you’re familiar with: yellow cutting, orange light cutting, white polishing, black finishing, and blue finessing foam. Buy them individually or in 3 packs. Save even more when you buy the do-it-yourself 6 pack; you choose 6 pads for one low price.
