New range of automotive paint polishing pads from Connect

Connect Workshop Consumables has launched a new range of paint polishing, finishing, and cutting consumables. This new comprehensive range of foam pads have been designed for the restoration and daily maintenance of vehicle painted surfaces.

As well as the traditional and ball series foam heads, there are also three different 150mm diameter Velcro backed pads: flat, flat bevel, and corrugated flat (also available in 78mm diameter), all of which are available in cutting, polishing, and finishing variants.

The sponge is manufactured from high quality polyester, providing improved tensile strength and durability that allows a service life which is several times longer than that of ordinary sponges, according to Connect.

Rounding off this new range are the addition of two woollen polishing pads for buffing and finishing.

All pads are supplied in a resealable bag, ensuring they can be kept away from dirt or contaminates when not in use.

Two different sizes of Velcro Backing Pads, three and five inch, have also been introduced for use with this new range, which will suit any polisher that uses an M14 x 2 thread.

This range has been designed to build upon the existing range of Connect body and paint shop consumables, and to compliment both the Power-Tec range of panel and finishing tools, together with the recently launched Laser Tools 20V cordless polisher (part number 8073).
