2" Lake Country Hydrotech Tangerine Polishing Pad

For years the smallest widely available polishing pad on the market has been 3"...  Today that changes with the release of the Lake Country 2" diameter polishing pads. Designed utilizing the same proven foam system from the Hydrotech series, these miniature polishing pads may be used to reach into areas you only dreamed of in the past!  The 2" pad system includes the 2" Diameter Crimson (finishing), 2" Diameter Tangerine (polishing), 2" Diameter Cyan (cutting), and the 2" Microfiber pad.
 
The Tangerine Hydrotech Polishing Pad is ideal for use with any type of polish and offers great cut for a polishing pad while easily finishing lsp ready with a high gloss finish.  If you need compounding level cut then move to the CarPro Flash Pad, the Lake Country 2" Microfiber pad, the CarPro Hybrid pad, or the Hydrotech Cyan pad.  
 
Lake Country's HydroTech Foam Pads are magical when paired with a dual action polisher and work great with rotary as well.  The unique closed cell european pre-polymer foam reduces polish absorption and allows polishes to stay on the paint without getting soaked into the pad which provides the best performance possible from both the polish and the pad.  The flat polishing surface allows full surface contact for consistent cut and finish which is what we recommend when using a Dual Action polisher to achieve the highest level and most consistent gloss possible.

Polishing Directions:
  • Fasten pad to machine taking care to securely center it on your backing plate
  • Follow polish dependant tips regarding speed, pressure, amount of polish, and priming a clean pad with some products
  • When polishing clean your pad after each section with your Foam Pad Brush before applying a couple more drops of polish for the next section.
Wax or Sealant Directions:
  • Fasten pad to machine taking care to securely center it on your backing plate
  • Apply a few drops of wax or sealant to a clean dry finishing pad.  For paste waxes simply twist the pad across the paste one or two turns to apply some wax to pad.
  • Turn D/A on 1-3 or rotary on 600 rpm and spread across the surface.  No pressure is needed with most waxes or sealants
  • Continue across panels until more product is needed
Aftercare:
  • Mix APC, or Dawn Detergent in a bucket of water.
  • Allow the pad to soak at least 15 minutes or until vehicle is complete.
  • When you are ready to clean, squeeze the solution into the pads and back out a couple times before thoroughly rinsing the pad with clean water.  I like to use the pressure of a hose or under a tap for the rinsing stage.
  • Place pads on sides with ventilation between or face down on a clean surface.  I recommend a device similar to that which dishes dry on.
Note:
  • After washing: Due to the closed cell foam hydrotech pads should be allowed to completely dry before next use to avoid any possibility of steam affecting the bond with the velcro backing material.
