Chemical Guys Polishing Pad Conditioner lubricates buffing and polishing pads to reduce wear and tear, and produce superior polishing results. Dry rubbing builds up excess heat and friction, which reduces the effectiveness of polish abrasives and wears down buffing pads prematurely. The slick lubricants in Polishing Pad Conditioner extend work time of polish abrasives to produce refined results with fewer passes. Particle abrasives inside polish need a prescribed amount of time to break down and refine the finish as they work. Without the proper lubrication of Polishing Pad Conditioner, water-based compounds can dry out and spread all over the work area in the form of an abrasive dust. Synthetic conditioners open up porous polishing pad foam to evenly spread compound and polish around the pad for consistent cutting power. The combination of proper work time, reduced dry friction, and even breakdown of abrasives and residue control produces superior polishing results in fewer passes and less time on the job. Use Polishing Pad Conditioner on every polishing job for the best results.


Machine polishing is the fine detailing art that balances machine power, abrasives, and friction to remove swirls and scratches, and restore luster to paint. Dry buffing pads generate excess heat and cause marring and other inconsistent paint removal marks. Chemical Guys Polishing Pad Conditioner lubricates buffing pads and polish abrasives to extend work time, reduce marring marks, and reduce the chances of burning paintwork from excess pad friction. Use just 1 – 3 spritzes of Polishing Pad Conditioner to moisten and lubricate polishing pads for superior results with heavy compounds, and light finishing polishes. Polishing Pad Conditioner works on all foam, microfiber, and wool buffing pads for extreme versatility and effectiveness no matter what polishing steps are needed.



Different polishing jobs require different combinations of machine polisher, polishing pad, and polishing compound. Body shop wet-sanding marks typically require heavy compound and wool cutting pads. Light swirls and scratches are removed with a foam cutting pad and swirl remover polish. Hard paint finishes may only be cut with microfiber cutting pads and a medium compound. No matter the pad, chemical, or machine, use Polishing Pad Conditioner to lubricate and prime the pad for superior results with fewer passes in less time. Polishing Pad Conditioner extends polish work time to properly use all of the particle abrasive and refine the finish. Properly-used polish does its job with fewer passes, which saves steps and valuable time. Lubricated pads cut and polish with less wear and tear on the pad. Properly primed pads work better, and last longer for reduced polishing costs. Use Chemical Guys Polishing Pad Conditioner for superior polishing results in less time.



Polishing pads are not single use! With the proper care, any detailer can keep and use the same buffing pads for years of reliable polishing performance. The key is proper pad care, so start by washing pads with Chemical Guys Polishing Pad Cleaner. Leaving old residues in pads turns polishing compound, particle abrasives, and removed paint into a hard and crusty cement that won’t wash out. The citrus-based Polishing Pad Cleaner dissolves old polishing compound residue to rinse any foam, microfiber, or wool buffing pads clean. For best results, clean buffing pads with Polishing Pad Cleaner after polishing every vehicle panel, or use a different buffing pad for every panel and wash them all at the end of the job. Polishing with a dirty, clogged pad does a poor job, and can actually cause more damage and marring to the surface from all the abrasive residue stuck in the foam. For the best results, clean your buffing pads with Polishing Pad Cleaner to remove any stuck residues, then add extra lubrication and soften the pad with Polishing Pad Conditioner.
