These foam pads are built for high-speed WIGGLING!

Large-stroke random orbital machines can really run a foam pad through its paces.  Rupes® designed these pads to perform exceptionally well with their wonderful line of BigFoot® large-stroke random orbital machines.

Rupes Foam Pads feature angle-cut sides, so they fit into tight areas with ease.  The sharply angled shape also eliminates mass, which aids in  maintaining backing plate rotational speed.  With the excess foam removed from the pad, both the pad and machine feel more agile during use, particularly during high-speed polishing.

Rupes Foam Pads are available in three sizes:

3" (80mm/100mm)
5" (130mm/150mm)
6" (155mm/180mm)

The  blue  pad is designated by Rupes as being a hard cutting pad.  It is a large-pore, thick-wall design.  This pad initially feels very rigid, but becomes more pliable and comfortable to use as the pad warms and saturates with buffing liquid.  The wide open-cell design of this pad keeps it clog-free longer than traditional foam cutting pads, but it may sling a bit if too much compound is used.  To control slinging, do not oversaturate or use an excess amount of compound with this pad.

The  green  pad is designated as being an intermediate cutting pad.  Compared to the blue pad, this pad utilizes a much smaller pore structure, and feels softer to the touch.  Its performance characteristics are more in line with a typical high quality USA-made foam cutting pad.  The green pad can leave a very nice finish, requiring only minimal follow-up polishing.  Many users of this pad have reported it to be their favorite Rupes pad.

The  yellow  pad is designated as being a medium or fine polishing pad.  For general polishing duties, this pad is tough to beat.  It can be used with heavy-cut compounds or finesse-polishes with great success, and should be a staple in your pad arsenal.

The  white  pad is designated as being a soft or ultra-fine finishing pad.
It is very soft and pliable, and is the perfect choice for use on difficult-to-finish paint types.

The   gray   foam pad (no photos shown yet, not available in 2.5") is the new for 2015 UHS Pad, and was designed specifically for use with Rupes UHS Ultra High Solid Solid Surface Polishing Compound. It can also be used with a variety of buffing liquids, including Rupes Zephr, Quarz, and Keramik Buffing Gels. This pad is very dense, and feels simliar to a very firm memory foam.  As it warms during use, it becomes soft and pliable, enabling it to cut remarkably well, yet leave a scour-free finish. This pad should be cleaned often during use, in order to avoid saturation of the foam. Otherwise, the pad can be difficult to clean, because it does not collapse and recoil rapidly.

Rupes Microfiber Cutting & Finishing Pads feature a beveled or flared-edge design, allowing them to stay planted to curved or complex panel shapes.  With the progressively flaring edge, comfort of use is through the roof!The Rupes 3" Blue Microfiber Cutting Pads are uniquely designed, all with a goal towards the rapid and comfortable elimination of harsh paint defects.The Rupes 3" Yellow Microfiber Finishing Pads are uniquely designed, all with a goal towards the rapid and comfortable elimination of minute paint defects.(Shown: 5" diameter pads; these pads are also available in 3" versions). With the option of microfiber or foam, there's no reason NOT to choose a Rupes Coarse-Cut Pad! In general, the Blue Coarse Microfiber Cutting Pad is quicker at eliminating severe paint defects. If the task at hand requires the elimination of sanding mark ridges (smooth and glossy sanding marks that have been polished, but are not fully eliminated), the microfiber pad is usually the better choice. However, if the goal is the elimination of heavy oxidation (such as is commonly found on motorhomes, boats, or any other vehicle that is exposed to harsh environmental conditions), then the Blue Coarse Foam Cutting Pad is the better choice. This is because microfiber has a tendency to load with paint residue quicker the the blue foam pad, which is very porous and rigid, and therefore much more difficult to clog with debris.(Shown: 5" diameter pads; these pads are also available in 3" versions). With the option of microfiber or foam, there's no reason NOT to choose a Rupes Polishing or Finishing Pad! While the Medium Microfiber Yellow Finishing Pad delivers an increased level of cutting power, it can at times leave a micro-hazed finish (ultra-fine polishing marks). Should this occur, re-polish any hazed areas with the Yellow Foam Polishing Pad.

UFO looks, with"outta-sight!" performance.

Rupes® 3" Microfiber Polishing Pads were designed specifically for use with the wonderful line of Rupes BigFoot® Polishing Machines, but they work well with all brands of random orbital polishers.  These pads feature several unique design elements.

Spiral Slots.
The first time you see a Rupes Microfiber Polishing Pad, the innovative spiral slots are immediately apparent. It's good to know that the slots weren't cut into the pads just for looks! By removing a portion of each pad via the slots, pad mass has been decreased. This results in a lighter weight, cooler-running pad.  The spiral slots also improve the contouring ability of the pad, allowing it to be comfortably be used on curved, rounded, or complex shapes.  The design engineers at Rupes also claim an improvement in the dispersement of buffing liquids across the pad face.

Patented design = no glue!
Buffing pads are exposed to all sorts of potentially damaging pressures, temperatures, and motions. It's no surprise then that over time, its materials can weaken, tear, or altogether fail. One of the most common (and frustrating) pad failures occurs to its adhesive system (the glue that holds the various layers of a buffing pad together).

The design engineers at Rupes solved this problem by utilizing an injection molding process to combine three intermediate layers into one, effectively replacing the foam core and its surrounding adhesive layers. This process melds rather than glues the Velcro and microfiber layers together.  Another plus: the white foam-like polyurethane resin is durable and resilient, which is a sought after trait when designing any buffing pad.

Low profile, flared-edge design feels agile and comfortble.
If you're a fan of polishing pads that feature a beleved or flared edge (where the Velcro face of the pad is smaller in diameter than its polishing face), you'll appreciate how agile & comfortable these Rupes 3" Microfiber Polishing Pads feel during use.
Rupes Microfiber Polishing Pads are available in two grades and three sizes:

• 3"    (080mm Velcro / 100mm pad face)
• 5"    (130mm Velcro / 150mm pad face)
• 6"    (155mm Velcro / 180mm pad face) (not currently available through our site)

Rupes  Blue  Coarse Microfiber Cutting Pads are designed to eliminate heavy paint defects, such as swirl marks, scratches, and oxidation. This pad features a short and dense microfiber material, and is perfect for use with virtually any heavy-cut compound, including Rupes Zephir and Rupes Quarz Buffing Gels.

Rupes  Yellow  Medium Microfiber Finishing Pads are designed to eliminate ultra-fine swirl marks, haziness, and defects. This pad features a long, soft microfiber material, and is perfect for use with virtually any fine polish, including Rupes Keramik and Rupes Diamond Gloss Buffing Gels.

Rupes Microfiber Cutting & Finishing Pads feature a beveled or flared-edge design, allowing them to stay planted to curved or complex panel shapes.  With the progressively flaring edge, comfort of use is through the roof!The Rupes 3" Blue Microfiber Cutting Pads are uniquely designed, all with a goal towards the rapid and comfortable elimination of harsh paint defects.The Rupes 3" Yellow Microfiber Finishing Pads are uniquely designed, all with a goal towards the rapid and comfortable elimination of minute paint defects.(Shown: 5" diameter pads; these pads are also available in 3" versions). With the option of microfiber or foam, there's no reason NOT to choose a Rupes Coarse-Cut Pad! In general, the Blue Coarse Microfiber Cutting Pad is quicker at eliminating severe paint defects. If the task at hand requires the elimination of sanding mark ridges (smooth and glossy sanding marks that have been polished, but are not fully eliminated), the microfiber pad is usually the better choice. However, if the goal is the elimination of heavy oxidation (such as is commonly found on motorhomes, boats, or any other vehicle that is exposed to harsh environmental conditions), then the Blue Coarse Foam Cutting Pad is the better choice. This is because microfiber has a tendency to load with paint residue quicker the the blue foam pad, which is very porous and rigid, and therefore much more difficult to clog with debris.(Shown: 5" diameter pads; these pads are also available in 3" versions). With the option of microfiber or foam, there's no reason NOT to choose a Rupes Polishing or Finishing Pad! While the Medium Microfiber Yellow Finishing Pad delivers an increased level of cutting power, it can at times leave a micro-hazed finish (ultra-fine polishing marks). Should this occur, re-polish any hazed areas with the Yellow Foam Polishing Pad. Either pad is versatile, and able to be successfully used for a variety of fine polishing and waxing tasks.The Rupes BigFoot® line of polishing pads is diverse!

UFO looks, with"outta-sight!" performance.

Rupes® 3" Microfiber Polishing Pads were designed specifically for use with the wonderful line of Rupes BigFoot® Polishing Machines, but they work well with all brands of random orbital polishers.  These pads feature several unique design elements.

Spiral Slots.
The first time you see a Rupes Microfiber Polishing Pad, the innovative spiral slots are immediately apparent. It's good to know that the slots weren't cut into the pads just for looks! By removing a portion of each pad via the slots, pad mass has been decreased. This results in a lighter weight, cooler-running pad.  The spiral slots also improve the contouring ability of the pad, allowing it to be comfortably be used on curved, rounded, or complex shapes.  The design engineers at Rupes also claim an improvement in the dispersement of buffing liquids across the pad face.

Patented design = no glue!
Buffing pads are exposed to all sorts of potentially damaging pressures, temperatures, and motions. It's no surprise then that over time, its materials can weaken, tear, or altogether fail. One of the most common (and frustrating) pad failures occurs to its adhesive system (the glue that holds the various layers of a buffing pad together).

The design engineers at Rupes solved this problem by utilizing an injection molding process to combine three intermediate layers into one, effectively replacing the foam core and its surrounding adhesive layers. This process melds rather than glues the Velcro and microfiber layers together.  Another plus: the white foam-like polyurethane resin is durable and resilient, which is a sought after trait when designing any buffing pad.

Low profile, flared-edge design feels agile and comfortble.
If you're a fan of polishing pads that feature a beleved or flared edge (where the Velcro face of the pad is smaller in diameter than its polishing face), you'll appreciate how agile & comfortable these Rupes 3" Microfiber Polishing Pads feel during use.
Rupes Microfiber Polishing Pads are available in two grades and three sizes:

• 3"    (080mm Velcro / 100mm pad face)
• 5"    (130mm Velcro / 150mm pad face)
• 6"    (155mm Velcro / 180mm pad face) (not currently available through our site)
