Rupes 3" Wool Buffing Pads
The Rupes 9.BW100H 3" Blue Coarse Wool Polishing Pad breaks from the traditional wool pad design, in that it features a dual-length, short string combination. This pad cuts rapidly, yet leaves a nearly pristine finish. Low profile, flared-edge design delivers stability, yet conforms to complex panel shapes with ease. BIGFOOT.<br/><br/>Actual dimensions:<br/>(Velcro: 3-1/8" | 80mm) • (Pad Face: 3-1/2" | 90mm) • (String Length: 3/8" | 9.5mm)<br/><br/>The Rupes 9.BW100M 3" Yellow Medium Wool Polishing Pad is a smooooth operator! An abundance of long & fine wool strings enable the pad to conform to very intricate panel shapes. These pads do a great job of self cleaning, which means that there is a potential for dustiness as the pad releases loaded abrasives & paint debris.<br/><br/> To achieve a rapid cut AND a superb finish, blow the pad clean to eliminate accumulated paint residue or excess buffing liquid. Then, do a follow-up pass using what is left in the pad (if the pad is too dry, add a minute quantity of buffing liquid, and do a single back & forth pass to minimize haziness). Excellent defect removal, and capable of leaving a spectacular finish.

BIGFOOT.<br/><br/>The Rupes Yellow Medium Wool Polishing Pad features highly refined, non-twisted wool (this means that the wool strings are NOT braided together to form a thicker, ropelike string), which delivers a smooth feel during polishing. This pad works well on super-contoured areas, thanks in large part to the plushness and length of its wool strings.<br/><br/>Shown: (1" | 9.BW40M) • (2" | 9.BW70M) • (3" | 9.BW100M)<br/>Available in 1-inch, 2-inch, 3-inch, 5-inch, and 6-inch diameters.

Compared to wool, microfiber has a tendency to LEVEL to a higher degree (eliminate peaks & texture).<br/><br/>However, microfiber will generally require more cleaning during use, as the microfiber strings are very efficient at grabbing and holding onto liquids, abrasives, and paint debris.<br/><br/>An hearty alternative to the Rupes 9.BW100M 3" Yellow Medium Wool Polishing Pad is the Rupes 9.BF100FM 3" Fine Microfiber Pad.

Rupes BigFoot 3" Wool Buffing Pads were designed specifically for use with orbit-action machines, but they deliver excellent performance when paired with rotary-action machines as well. Two versions are available:

Rupes 3"  Blue  Coarse Wool Polishing Pads (9.BW100H) feature dual-length strings that deliver a rapid cut. A rigid blue foam interlayer assists in delivering maximum machine motion to the wool.

Rupes 3"  Yellow  Medium Wool Polishing Pads (9.BW100M) deliver a super-smooth polishing feel. They cut remarkably well, but finish out surprisingly good.  The yellow foam interlayer features just enough rigidness, enabling them to conform to complex panel shapes.

If haziness or scouring remains after polishing with wool (regardless the type of buffing liquid), final-polish utilizing a Rupes Foam Buffing Pad.
