Lake Country 6.5 Inch CCS Pads 6 Pack - Your Choice!
Lake Country’s CCS Dual Action 6.5 inch Smart Pads™ Foam Pads are flat full contact buffing pads that work with your dual action orbital polisher to correct automotive paint more easily than ever before. The CCS Smart Pads™’ user-friendly features provide better control, less product waste, and a more successful detail.
Lake Country has improved upon the basic pad design with CCS technology, which actually slows the rate of product absorption and saves polish. With conventional foam pads, polish is absorbed into the foam rather quickly. This reduces the working time with the polish and may give you disappointing results. A build-up of chemicals inside the foam will also cause the pad to dry out more rapidly.
CCS stands for Collapsed Cell Structure. The face of a CCS pad is covered in strategically placed pockets. These pockets are locations where the foam cells have been closed. Polish does not absorb into these closed cell pockets, leaving more product on the pad's surface and on the paint. This polish-saving design gives polishes a longer working time, which results in more successful detailing.
CCS Smart Pads™ work on every type of paint, from conventional clear coats to the harder, scratch-resistant clear coats used by Mercedes Benz and the Ford Motor Company. Lake Country's range of foam compositions, combined with the right chemicals, provides you with a prescription to correct almost any paint imperfection on any paint finish.
What are the benefits of CCS Technology?
Slows rate of polish absorption – As discussed above, the pads are slow to absorb products and therefore the paint benefits from a longer working time. The same is true of liquid waxes and sealants.
Improves operator control – CCS pockets gradually release polish as needed by the operator. Since these areas are not absorbing polish, they
serve as little reservoirs until the excess polish is needed.
Prevents pad skipping – CCS pockets reduce surface tension allowing the operator to run pad flat on a working surface. Basically, the CCS pockets break up the smooth surface of the foam to eliminate the sticking and skipping that occurs when two perfectly flat surfaces meet.
Creates less heat – CCS pockets provide several points where the foam is not completely touching the paint. This reduces friction and therefore heat generated between the pad and the paint.
OEM approved – OEM tests confirm CCS pads out-perform convoluted pad designs.
CCS foam pads provide ample surface contact to effectively work the paint. The CCS pockets are small so they don't affect the amount of foam continuously touching the paint during operation. Each CCS Pad measures 7/8" of an inch thick, perfect for even distribution of heat and product. The CCS Pad's tapered edge was designed to optimize performance, regardless of the type of machine used.
The longer working time afforded by the CCS pads allows you to work problem areas with greater success. The pockets reduce the amount of heat created so even though you're working the paint longer, there is no additional risk to the paint.
Each CCS pad features VELCRO brand hook and loop fasteners covering the entire back of each pad to secure to a hook and loop backing plate.
