Lake Country Manufacturing is a privately owned manufacturer of buffing and polishing products sold worldwide. Our products are sold to the Industrial, Paint, Body and Equipment (PBE), Detailing and Consumer markets through multiple distribution channels. We are driven by finding profitable solutions for our customers through the development of proprietary products and customized buffing systems. Lake Country currently holds 27 U.S. and international patents, which include the System 2000™ Padwasher, System 3000™ Padwasher, Scuff Ball™, CCS Technology™ and Tufted Foam™.
- Foamed Wool 6.5 inch Buffing/Polishing Pads feature patented nanofoam particles that encapsulate the base of the wool fibers to help prevent caking and matting. These manufactured Foamed Wool pads polish like a wool pad but finish like a foam pad, giving your vehicle’s paint the best qualities of each.
Lake Country’s premium engineered foams are developed and sourced worldwide to offer the best products available. Hundreds of hours go into testing, research and development dialing in the specific foam formulations we use to get the perfect results and making your life easier. Foam is typically broken down in to two categories being reticulated and non-reticulated.
RETICULATED FOAM (OPEN CELL)
In reticulated or open cell foam there are a few, if any, intact bubbles or cell windows, similar to a net. Think of a window frame without glass.
• Resistance to compression is decreased (same foam will feel less firm if reticulated).
• Tear resistance is increased making pads more durable, reducing heat and increased performance on long throw DA polishers
• Chemicals are absorbed faster than nonreticulated resulting in more waste but are more durable and typically increase longevity of the cutting power during the polishing cycle.
NON-RETICULATED FOAM (CLOSED CELL)
Non-reticulated foam pores are completely sealed with windows intact or film covering the cell. Due
to the density and construction, polish becomes more difficult to absorb, keeping the polish or abrasive on the surface to increase working time and efficiency of the polishing cycle.
• Closed cell pads reduce absorption of polish and keep abrasive on the pad surface to increaseerformance and save on polish usage.
• Reduced durability of overall foam product leads to a shorter lifespan in comparison to open cell variations.
