QUALITY CONTROL: Changing your foam pad is quick and easy with the hook and loop backing (like Velcro). This backing is permanently attached to the foam side of the pad with adhesive that is both heat and chemical resistant.

PROTECTIVE DESIGN: This Buffing Pad has a tapered edge that provides optimal performance, balance, durability and better surface contact.
