Uncover sparkling metal with Wolfgang’s premium wool pads!
Aluminum and other bare metals are tough contenders for any polishing pad! That’s why Wolfgang partnered with Lake Country to develop top quality wool pads to maximize the performance of Wolfgang MetallWerk™ Metal Polishes. Wolfgang MetallWerk™ Wool Metal Polishing Pads
power through oxidation to restore even the oldest, most neglected, bare metals.Lake Country has made three distinct types of wool pads to maximize the effectiveness of our Wolfgang MetallWerk™ metal polishes.
Two pads here are made with twisted wool, which is a compounding material. Among twisted wool pads, pads with shorter threads are more aggressive than those with longer twisted threads. Therefore our 4 Ply 100% Twisted Wool Compounding Pad has shorter threads than the 50/50 Acrylic Polishing Pad. The Final Polishing Pad is made of soft, fluffy, electrified wool. This wool is not twisted at all and is therefore gentler on the paint. The Final Polishing Pad is a gloss-enhancing pad.All three pads have recessed, sturdy backing where the backing plate sits.
This recessed area prevents contact between the backing plate and the work surface. High grade wool is permanently adhered to the backing to prevent separation during operation.4 Ply 100% Twisted Wool Compounding Pad
Each strand of high grade wool is tightly twisted to maintain a consistent level of cut for longer periods of operation. The thick yarns remove heavy oxidation and stains from neglected or never-before-polished metal surfaces. The pad a 1 inch long threads. This pad was developed for aluminum but it is effective on all bare metals. Use the twisted wool pad with Wolfgang MetallWerk™ Aluminum Compound. Available in 7.5 and 8.5 inches.50/50 Wool Acrylic Polishing Pad
This wool pad has 50% 4 ply wool and 50% single strand wool/acrylic blend. This combination makes a light compounding/polishing wool that removes minor oxidation, haze, dullness, and spots. The 50/50 pad has 1 ½ inch twisted threads, which are less aggressive than the shorter twisted threads found on the compounding pad. Use this pad with Wolfgang MetallWerk™ Fine Aluminum Polish. Available in 7.5 and 8.5 inches.Electrified White Sheepskin Final Polishing Pad
The Electrified Sheepskin Final Polishing Pad is made by electrifying the wool to remove microscopic barbs naturally found in wool. The resulting wool is soft enough for final polishing with a shine enhancing polish. This wool pad has 1 inch threads which are not twisted, resulting in a less aggressive type of wool. Use this pad with Wolfgang MetallWerk™ Aluminum Concours Polish. Available in 7.5 and 8.5 inches.Wool Metal Polishing Pads are available in 7.5 and 8.5 inches.
The 8.5 inch pads are for use with a circular polisher equipped with a 7 inch rotary backing plate. The 7.5 inch pads can be used on your Porter Cable 7424XP
, FLEX XC 3401 VRG
or other dual action polisher, with a 6 inch DA backing plate, or on a rotary with a 6 inch rotary backing plate. All pads have Velcro® brand hook and loop fasteners.Caution!
Wool pads should not be used on plated, painted, coated, or anodized metals.Detailing tip:
When using a wool pad, do not use a pad conditioner as you would on a foam pad. Dry wool will cut through oxidation more effectively than damp wool.
Wool pads wear differently from foam pads. Here’s what to expect: the wool will lint. Linting allows the pad surface to constantly renew itself. Wear protective glasses while you work to keep this lint out of your eyes. Also, wool will flatten out or cake with polish. When this happens, stop the polisher and turn it pad side up. Hold a sturdy brush against the wool and spin the pad for a few seconds. It’s best to do this on the ground so you can stay clear of the spinning pad.
Polishing aluminum and other bare metals generates a lot of black residue. Fluffing your wool pad will help prolong its usefulness, but it’s a good idea to have one or two more pads on hand. When one seems to be losing effectiveness, you can switch to a clean pad and keep working. As you finish with each pad, toss it in a bucket of Wolfgang Polishing Pad Rejuvenator
and water. This cleaning solution will start breaking up the black residue and polish immediately to make the pads easier to clean.For specific directions on using each pad, refer to the directions of each Wolfgang MetallWerk™ metal polish.
