Rupes Original Foam Buffing Pads have been optimized for use with large stroke, random orbital polishers. These pads tend to be more rigid than typical foam pads, a necessity when using rapid-motion, powerful polishing machines. Angle-cut sides enable these pads to conform to complex panel shapes. By tapering the side of the pad, excess mass along the shoulder is eliminated. Five versions are available.

Rupes Mille Low Profile Foam Buffing Pads are optimized for use with gear-driven (aka forced rotation) orbital polishers. Low-slung pad design minimizes pad twist & squish. These pads perform exceptionally well when paired with short-stroke, random orbital polishers, too. Three versions are available.

Rupes Microfiber Pads can deliver unparalled speed of cut. Compared to wool or foam, microfiber is super-capable of locking onto a buffing liquid's abrasive grains, which in turn enables efficient elimination via leveling action of micro-texture, sanding ridges, and other difficult-to-remove defects. Part of the polishing magic lies in the fact that a tremendous amount of surface area exists on each microfiber string, and loads of strings are packed onto the pad's face. Consequently, the potential for super-fast defect removal is vastly increased (versus a typical foam or wool pad). A dense yet contourable low-profile injection molded foam core efficiently transfers machine motion & user applied pressure to the pad face. It is typical to see a foam pad deliver a better finish than a microfiber pad. Two versions are available.

Rupes Wool Buffing Pads deliver a smooth & controlled feel during polishing. They feature exceptional cutting ability, but are capable of leaving a pristine finish. Oftentimes, no follow-up polishing via a foam pad is necessary! Compared to microfiber, wool tends to keep buffing liquids in play longer. This means that although abrasive grains and the liquid ingredients in compounds and polishes certainly attach to wool... they also tend to detach from wool more readily than they do with microfiber. This ever-shifting, dynamic movement of the buffing liquid delivers an extended polishing cycle per application of buffing liquid. Compared to foam, leveling action with wool (in general) tends to be higher. Two versions are available for orbit-action machines; one version for rotary-action machines.
