4" Hydrotech Crimson Finishing Pad

The Crimson Hydrotech Finishing Pad is ideal for use with a polish or finishing polish to bring the gloss to an incredible level while still maintaining some minor cutting ability.  You can also use this pad for application of a wax or sealant.  When it comes to cut/finish ratio nothing comes close to the Hydrotech and Hybrid pads.  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.  They also feature a slight radius on the polishing surface edge and a velcro offset 5/16" from the edge of the pad to center it on the backing plate and to keep the velcro safely away from your paint. Hydro Tech Pads come with three different levels of cut from the cyan cutting pad to the tangerine polishing pad to the crimson finishing pad.

Polishing Directions:

  • Fasten pad to machine taking care to securely center it on your backing plate
  • Follow polish dependent 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


  • 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.


  • 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.
