This Rupes Blue Coarse Foam Pad is generally used with the Rupes Product Zephir as the first step of the Rupes paint restoration process. The unique large cell construction of the Blue Foam pad dissipates heat and allows the compound to maintain its extraordinary cutting ability. The oscillation of the BigFoot tool releases the compound from the foam’s inner cells and constantly applies it to the work surface. This guarantees a layer of lubricated abrasives is constantly present between the foam pad and the work surface.
What Products To Use?
The Rupes polishing and compounding pads work great with the Rupes brand polishes and compounds and we suggest the use of them with their pad line-up. The Rupes pads are colored coded to their corresponding polish or compound. The Rupes Blue Coarse Foam Pad is to be used with the Rupes Zephir Gloss Coarse Gel which has a blue cap.
Rupes has perfected each of their products to work exceptionally well with each pad, so that the operator will achieve showroom quality results. Needless to say, you can still use Detail King's exclusive polish line-up with these pads, if you so desire!
