Chemical Guys Hex Logic Quantum Pads
Quantum Hex-Logic Buffing Pads
Quantum Hex-Logic polishing pads represent the great leap forward in machine polishing design. Traditional buffing pad designs can’t take the physical stresses from polishing. Regular foam pads are prone to failures in the hook and loop backing system, internal foam breakdown, and burning and melting from high speed rotation. While old school rotary polishers spin on one axis and create even stresses across a buffing pad, modern dual action machines spin and oscillate and create extra stresses and strain.
Hex-Logic Backing Material
Quantum buffing and polishing pads are designed, engineered, and manufactured in the United States. Every pad uses a hook-and-loop interface backing pad to attach to any machine polisher backing plate that uses the hook-and-loop material. This unique breathable backing material helps wick heat away through the attachment side and advanced vented backing plates. While cheaper foam pads melt and pull apart during polishing jobs, Quantum Pads last and last for dependable detailing use on even the most intense polishing jobs.
WHAT IS A HEX-LOGIC PAD?
Hex-Logic pads are engineered with the finest and most durable detailing foams, hook and loop interface, and V-cut channels to increase airflow and cooling characteristics. Hex-Logic engineers rounded the profile of the pad for improved flex into curves and contours and smoother polishing performance. New materials and manufacturing processes improve airflow to cool foam pads and reduce the wear and tear that rips pad foam from the backing material. Hex-Logic polishing pads are a completely redesigned and revamped version of your typical polishing pad to enhance your polishing performance and experience. Professional and enthusiasts love Hex-Logic pad for its newly reinvented design to change the way you polish.
Hex-Logic pads are the latest Exclusive Hex-Logic pattern spreads polish over the surface for an even cut and superior polishing results. V-cut channels in Hex-Logic pattern funnel in fresh air to cool the pad and work surface for extended work times and reduced wear and tear. Rounded buffing profile helps pad slip into dramatic body curves for improved contact and more even polishing results. Improved adhesives and manufacturing techniques ensures a strong bond that will not detach backing attachment from foam pad. Hex-Logic surface grooves spread product evenly and conform pad to contoured surfaces.
Hex-Logic offers a wide variety of pads that range in density, smoothness and finishing capabilities. Down below are listed the different types of pads that Hex-Logic offers to provide you with a breakdown of the difference in the colour of pads, their strengths and purpose.
Yellow Heavy Cutting Pad
Use this pad to apply compounds or polishes to remove severe oxidation, swirls, scratches and water spots in conjunction with a polishing compound. It is the most aggressive and should only be used on oxidised and older finishes. Always follow this pad with an orange pad and a fine polish and then a white pad to refine the paint until it is smooth.
Orange Medium-Heavy Cutting Pad
This firm, high density foam is ideal for scratch and defect removal. The orange foam offers the correction of a typical compounding pad whilst at the same time allowing the polishing ability of light cut foam pad. When used with a heavier compounds it will remove moderate swirls and scratches with little or no haze. It’s an all around pad that will work on most light to moderate imperfections.
Green Heavy Polishing Pad
This pad produces less spot heating and has a unique compression/load/deflection ratio which means it conforms quickly to contours. It is strong enough to remove swirls and scuffs while at the same time producing a high gloss swirl free finish. This foam is also ideal for applying one-step cleaner waxes and polishes. It is a balance of polishing and finishing that is perfect for an all-in-one product application.
White Medium-Light Polishing Pad
Less dense foam formula for the application of cleaner waxes, micro-fine polishes and sealants. This pad has a very light cutting power so it’s perfect for pre-wax cleaners. It is the most well used pad as it is ideal for application of pre-wax cleansers as well as many finishing polishes.
Blue Glaze & Cleaner Foam Pad
Unique composition complements all glazes and light surface cleansers perfectly delivering a super fine finish for use with ultra fine polishes or any glaze.
Black Finishing Foam Pad
Composition is firm enough to withstand added pressure during final finishing to remove buffer swirls. It has no cut and will apply thin, even coats of waxes, sealants and glazes.
Red Perfection Pad-Ultra Fine Finishing Pad
This pad has an ultra soft composition which has no cut for applying refined waxes and sealants over sensitive painted finishes.

CLEAN PADS WORK BETTER
Polishing pads fill up with spent polish abrasives and removed paint residues as the job wears on. This residue and removed paint clogs pads and causes inconsistent polishing work during a job. All these residues can also turn into a hard cement-like mass inside buffing pads if left to dry, which ruins the polishing abilities of the pad. The secret to maintaining polishing pads for years of reliable use is in keeping them clean. Clean out old compound, particle abrasives, and removed paint residues to keep pads soft, flexible, and ready for controlled paint removal. Keep one set of polishing pads and clean then during the job to maintain maximum effect and shorter polishing times, or change out between several sets of pads for nonstop polishing and clean them all at the end of the day for faster turnaround time. Keep a bottle of Chemical Guys Polishing Pad Cleaner and Rejuvenator on hand to clean, restore and prolong your buffing and polishing pads. The ergonomically designed Foam Pad Cleaning Brush scrubs wax and polishes out of the foam and restores its original texture. Professionals polishing lots of cars in a shop setting benefit from the fast and thorough action of the Grit Guard Universal Pad Washer, which cleans and dries all types of buffing pads on virtually any machine in seconds.
