Uro-Tec™ Foam Pads

Automotive paint has changed dramatically in the last few years. Buff and Shine have responded by creating Uro-Tec™, a line of buffing pads made with euro foam and specifically designed for the use of DA polishers.

Euro foam is imported from Europe and was specifically designed years ago for use on automotive surfaces.  Its design was driven by the OEM auto manufacturers who demanded highly durable foam pads that can quickly produce great results in the factory’s intensive buffing environment where it is common to find dozens of buffing technicians working non-stop every day, all day long to perfect the fresh paint of hundreds of newly manufactured vehicles coming off the assembly line.

Buff and Shine have positioned themselves to be at the forefront of euro foam technology with the introduction of their Uro-Tec™ foam pads constructed with the finest available imported European foam.  If you use standard dual-action and random orbital machines, gear-driven DAs, or rotary (high-speed) polishers, then Buff and Shine’s Uro-Tec™ Foam Pads are just what you need.

Although Buff and Shine’s Uro-Tec pads will work great with virtually any polisher, they will be especially favoured by those detailing technicians who prefer long-throw or long-stroke DA polishers. Uro-Tec pads are perfectly balanced for these specific types of polishers.  This balance reduces vibration and pad “hopping”, which leads to superior contact with the polishing surface, which increases polishing efficiency and less user fatigue.

Uro-Tec™ pads are made with high-quality reticulated (open cell) euro foam of a higher density that will reduce the pad softening that some technicians have experienced during heavy use with these machines.  This is because the open cell construction helps to disperse heat during use.

The centre hole of the Uro-Tec™ pads also helps with pad heat by providing a cooling chamber for excess heat to escape while the pad is working on the surface.  The heat travels up the centre hole and then dissipates into the open cells of the foam.  This heat transfer action allows longer working time. The centre hole of the pads can also help with visually aligning the pad onto backing plates that have a similar centre hole.

By nature of their manufacture, all Uro-Tec™ foam pads have supreme tear resistance.  You will find that these pads last longer than other pads you might have used.  And, of course, because Buff and Shine’s uses only high-performance adhesives, separation of the foam from the hook-and-loop backing material is not likely, even with extended use and multiple washing.

The dimensions of the Uro-Tec™ pads are designed to maximize buffing and polishing efficiency.  The backing diameter is 5″ to fit perfectly onto long-stroke DA polishers.  The 1″ pad thickness provides a perfect balance between stiffness, providing consistent contact across the pad face with larger flat panels, and flexibility, allowing the technician to maneuver the pad into body contours.  Because of their bevelled design, the working area is actually 1″ larger in diameter than the base and thus provides a larger working area than a squared-off design.
