New Rupes D-A Series at Abcon

Rupes Tools is well known and respected in the automotive sector for polishing surfaces in particular.

Following years of research, testing, and development, the company has launched the new Rupes D-A foam pad range, which offers increased performance, versatility, and optimised user experience.

Developed specifically to complement the high-performance D-A compounds, these innovative new pads feature proprietary foam formulae and a patented contour edge design, which have been extensively tested and optimised for both gear-driven and random orbital tool movements.

The reduced pad height, combined with the all-new foam materials, optimises the transfer of energy from the tool to the application surface for more effective defect removal and higher quality finishing.

The contour edge design has been strategically designed to maintain safe operation near edges.

Additionally, the new pad profile improves the consistency of pad movement in curves and contours by reducing pad distortion.

With every adjustment to the pad materials and design, Rupes engineers and product development specialists carefully considered the operator experience to ensure users would realise increased stability, performance, and ease of use.

The new Rupes D-A foam pads represent the next step in the evolution of polishing pad performance for all orbital tools.
