Looking to correct swirls and scratches in a hurry? This is the pad for you! Use this new 5.5" Blue Foam Cutting Pad with our color-coded Adam's Heavy Correcting Compound to remove swirls and scratches faster than ever. This pad must be followed with Adam's Paint Correcting Polish and 5.5" Orange Foam Pad for best results.

As machine polishers have advanced, so have the demands of the pads that attach to them. This is our latest evolution in polishing pad design.

Each aspect of the pad design has been carefully considered to deliver maximum performance, durability, and results. Featuring a high-grip Velcro backing for maximum adhesion and minimal pad slip, these pads will hold tighter to your machine reducing the chances of an errant pad or mid-polishing delamination in even the most extreme conditions. We made further improvements to our already excellent Gen6 foam pad design, shortening the overall diameter to 5.5" and removing some of the thickness of the pad, to improve feel and decrease vibration. The convoluted face generates less heat, and the tapered edge design provides stability that can withstand the rigors of today's large orbit machines like the Adam's Swirl Killer. To aid with cooling, plus reduce weight, each pad has a precision cut center hole that can also be used to aid in centering the pad on the backing plate. They now have a lower price when compared to our older Generation 5 pads as well.

The specially selected blue foam used in the construction of the Adam's 5.5" Blue Foam Cutting Pad mates up perfectly with the color coordinated Adam's Heavy Correcting Compound to make short work of heavy swirls and scratches, while still finishing clean with low amounts of dust. The blue polishing face has strong cutting power but does need to be followed up with our 5.5" Orange Foam Pad and Correcting Polish for best results.

Extensive testing and development was done to make sure that each aspect of the Adam's 5.5" Orange Foam Cutting Pad maximizes performance on a variety of polishes, but they are purpose built to maximize performance of the Adam's Swirl Killer, Rupes LHR15ES Mk II Bigfoot Polisher, or Porter Cable 7424 XP equipped with a 5" backing plate.

When he was nine, Adam Pitale started his own bike repair business. By the age of 12, he hired another boy from the neighborhood and during high school and college, his mobile detailing operation focused on limousine fleets. After college, The Coca-Cola corporation hired Adam and his company. Adam’s Premium Car Care was responsible for detailing the 3,400 vehicle fleet over a 24 month period. Using what they learned caring for these large fleets, Adam developed a product line and began selling at swap meets. Eventually, his business took off and they began selling to dealers across the country. Zip uses Adam’s Car Care Products because they work.
