100% twisted wool is the most aggressive they come, and can be found in any shop. These wool pads are used in every industry and a standard for heavy cutting applications. Choose a shorter pile to increase aggression when compounding or longer pile to increase durability.
THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN STEAMED AND UN-STEAMED PADS
By steaming the wool, the tufted wool yarn strands bloom with heat and moisture, providing a full, plush feeling. With unsteamed wool pads, the strands of wool are sewn tighter together resulting in more wool in the pad.
- Larger Strands – During the steaming process the strands bloom and swell, making the strands look visually wider.
- Less Initial Blow off – One of the results of steaming the wool is that it helps to reduce the amount of wool that initially sheds from the pad.
- Look and Feel – Because the wool swells, the pad feels more plush and full adding delicacy to the polishing process.
