Rupes Microfiber Pads are available in two grades, and three sizes:

• 3"    (3.00" Velcro / 3.75" pad face)
• 5"    (5.00" Velcro / 5.75" pad face)
• 6"    (5.75" Velcro / 6.00" pad face)

Rupes® 5" 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 5" Microfiber Pads feel during use.

Rupes 5" Coarse Microfiber Pads (9.BF150FH) are designed to eliminate heavy paint defects, such as swirl marks, scratches, and oxidation. This pad is perfect for use with virtually any heavy-cut compound, including Rupes Zephir and Rupes Quarz Buffing Gels.

Rupes 5" Fine Microfiber Pads (9.BF150FM) are designed to eliminate ultra-fine swirl marks, haziness, and defects. This pad is perfect for use with virtually any fine polish, including Rupes Keramik and Rupes Diamond Gloss Buffing Gels.

For ultimate paint clarity: Final-polish each section using a yellow or white Rupes Foam Buffing Pad.
