Rupes Bigfoot Blue Coarse Wool Pad
The Rupes BigFoot Blue Coarse Wool Pads have been designed to work with all types of machines and provide a noticeably increased cutting ability over foam pads yet still finish down amazingly well.
The Rupes wool pads represent a new generation of highly refined wool that redefines and challenges the perception that wool cannot finish down well on paint. These pads are made from natural wool that undergoes a significant refinement process to produce the finest and shortest strands of wool ever used on polishing pads.
The dual white-and-blue individual wool strands have been specifically engineered to maximise both the pads cutting and finishing qualities, while the rigid-yet-flexible blue backing foam allows the pads to transfer maximum power yet conform to body panels producing a more even and consistent level of paint correction throughout each panel section.
The greatest benefit of these pads is that they can cut or level paint defects almost as well as microfibre pads, yet they do not suffer from the same overheating issues and in fact run cooler than foam pads. They also have reduced drag compared to microfibre pads and will continue spinning on your dual-action polisher well after many microfibre and foam pads begin to bog down.
For best results and performance on free-spinning, dual-action polishers, Rupes recommends using these pads with Rupes Zephir Gloss Coarse Compound, while with forced rotation polishers, Rupes Mille Coarse Compound renders the best results, and with rotary polishers, Rupes Rotary Coarse Compound will best extract the peak performance and gain the greatest results with these pads.
With the ability to remove sanding marks as coarse as 1500 grit as well as correct heavy paint defects such as deeper scratches, water etchings and severe oxidation yet finish down like no other wool pad in the past, the new Rupes Blue Coarse Wools Pads have truly redefined wool as an amazing material to polish automotive paint.
