Not all foam buffing and polishing pads are created equal!
In the 30 plus years I’ve been in this industry, I’ve never felt compelled to put my name on a foam buffing pad. Until now. McKee’s 37 Redline Foam Buffing Pads will deliver a flawless finish on every type of paint system. From rock-hard German paint to buttery-soft Japanese paint and everything in between, I guarantee you will find a foam pad in the McKee’s 37 Redline Pad System that delivers the results you are looking for. McKee’s 37 Redline Foam Buffing Pads are so good I put my name on them. – BOB MCKEE
Modern paint finishes are harder than ever, making it difficult to achieve the results you’re looking for by hand. Combine that with the plethora of sophisticated, user-friendly dual action polishers that are flooding the market, you’ll quickly understand why I felt the need to develop a line of foam buffing pads exclusively for McKee’s 37. You won’t find these pads anywhere else. Here’s what sets them apart:
First and foremost, every pad in the McKee’s 37 Redline Pad System is over-sized. The industry norm has been 3.5, 5.5, and 6.5 inches respectively. I wanted to deliver faster results, so my team came up with the idea to make the pads ¼ inch larger in diameter. It may not sound like much, but when you’re polishing a large pick up truck or in my case, a 45 foot Coach, that extra ¼ inch makes a big difference! Thanks to the cutback design with the 35 degree beveled edge, your 3, 5, and 6 inch backing plate will fit perfectly! The velcro hook and loop on the back of each pad ensures a strong attachment to your backing plate.
McKee's 37 Redline Foam Buffing Pads are available in 3.75, 5.75, and 6.75 inches
Size matters. When foam buffing pads were first introduced, they were obnoxiously thick. The foam buffing pads that make up the McKee’s 37 Redline Pad System are 7/8” thick, which garners the most pad rotation from your dual action polisher. If the pad is not rotating efficiently on your dual action polisher, you’re not removing paint defects! The fact that my foam buffing pads are only 7/8” thick ensures consistent pad rotation, even with entry level dual action and random orbital polishers.
The tapered design features an industry-exclusive 35 degree beveled edge. This helps ensure the pad stays flat as you polish a section of your vehicle. The high-density foam helps the pad retain its shape and mechanical cutting abilities, even after extended polishing sessions. ACT (Advanced Cooling Technology) prevents heat from building up by circulating air through the center vent, creating a pad that lasts longer. Pads paired with McKee's 37 polishes and compounds will last even longer!
McKee’s 37 Redline Foam Buffing Pads are compatible with all styles of dual action and rotary polishers, including forced rotation and long-throw orbitals! Pound for pound, you would be hard pressed to find a more feature-packed buffing pad for the money. Last, but not least, these robust foam pads are proudly manufactured in the USA!
McKee’s 37 Redline Pad System consists of 4 colors:
Yellow Cutting Foam Pad – The firm, sharp open-cell structure of the Yellow Foam Cutting Pad provides the mechanical cutting power necessary to remove deeper swirl marks, scratches, and oxidation. Pair this pad with our FC-717 Swirl Remover for automotive application, or our Marine/RV Heavy-Duty Cleaner Wax for gel coat and fiberglass.
Orange Foam Polishing Pad – The dense, European open-cell structure of the Orange Foam Polishing Pad provides the perfect balance of cut and finish to effectively remove light swirl marks and other paint defects without scouring or hazing delicate paint systems. Pair this pad with our FC-717 Swirl Remover or FAST Polish for automotive application, or our Marine/RV One-Step Polish & Sealant for gel coat and fiberglass.
White All-In-One Foam Polishing Pad – Arguably the most versatile pad in the line (and my personal favorite!), the White All-In-One Foam Polishing Pad pairs perfectly with one-step polishes, cleaner waxes, and all-in-one cleaners and polishes. The closed-cell European foam was chosen for its density and finishing abilities. Fear not, this pad is still capable of removing light defects when paired with our 360 Corrects Cleans Seals for paint or our One-Step Polish & Sealant for gel coat and fiberglass.
Black Foam Finishing Pad – Soft enough to apply a wax or sealant, yet dense enough for ultra-fine finishing polishes, the Black Foam Finishing Pad is as versatile as it is soft! Apply uniform coats of waxes, glazes, and sealants with this European-foam finishing pad.
