    Re: Boss MF pad issue

    Just wondering if your machines have the washer mod installed?

    I thought I'd add my pads to this Show & Tell. Each used on one vehicle with a GG6, vented pad and FCC.

    Ive had that interface pad melt after 2 sections.... Are you kidding me?

    Also the white pads are so stiff that they do not even make full contact. I even tried washing them too.
    OR at least they should recommend a suitable speed.

    Meguiar'swas very specific that their microfiber discs we not to exceed 4800 opm. Rupes recommends speed 3 or 4 with their money to fiber pads.

    Overall, it looks like the foam interface on the boss mf pads isn't dense enough to handle the pad twist associated with these large stroke tools.

    Is the red foam dense, or hard prior to use, or is it soft and pliable?

    These pads seem to have a very soft foam which do not like much pressure. I use these quite often and they work very well, however you need to adjust your technique. I typically run my MKII 15 @ 4-4.5 with lighter pressure when using these pads, while my older 21 I can run @ 6. I know I was eating them up pretty good when I first got them also.

    Re: Boss MF pad issue

    Well I damaged 4 last weekend I would guess too much speed. I was running at 4.5~5 on my MKII 21 with very little to no pressure using Menz SHC 300 (was on hood and roof mostly one handed). I do like the pads better than the Megs because of the lack of matting and the ease of blowing them clean compared to the Megs and leave a better finish.

    The one that surprised me was when the MF delaminated from the foam.

    Well said. That has been my point exactly. Like dlc95 said, griot's should probably specify that the pads should not be used over a certain speed. That said, I still think people need to use a bit more common sense, if whatever you are doing is destroying the pads (speed, pressure, dry buffing) then learn to adapt your technique to optimize the performance of the pad. Most of us experience the same issues, but because we love the pads we've made the necessary adjustments.

    That said, I understand how it would be frustrating considering how expensive they are. Especially if you didn't see this thread and had it happen to numerous pads. That would stink
