These wool buffing pads are generally more aggressive and easier to control than foam pads. They have a greater available cutting surface area due to the presence of thousands of fibers. These fibers provide faster cutting action than foam pads. Wool fibers hold the polish to provide even distribution of material and require less pressure from the operator. The nap helps wool pads glide and conform to contours, making them easier to control than foam pads. Because of their cutting ability, wool pads are effective for removing sanding scratches and perform best on rotary type buffing tools. Depending on the polish type, individual technique, composition of the coating, and the tool used, finishing with a wool pad may require a follow-up step with a foam pad and polish to remove micro-marring or swirl marks.
