About Hex-Logic Polishing Pads
The brand new Hex-Logic polishing pads are redesigned and revamped for better polishing performance and a more comfortable experience. The Blue Hex-Logic Soft Finishing Pad spreads the perfect coat of glaze for added gloss, shine, and deep-wet reflection. Upon introduction, Hex-Logic Polishing Pads quickly became the go-to buffing pads for detailing professionals and hardcore enthusiasts. Detailers loved the even spread and cutting power of the unique Hex-Logic grooves, and they soon applied it to every step from heavy compounding, to fine polishing, and finishing with the perfect coat of wax. Machine polishing is the only process that permanently removes and repairs paint swirls, scratches, and other defects. Similar to exfoliating skin, the polishing machine spins the polishing pad and compound on the surface to physically remove “dead” layers of paint.
The new Hex-Logic pads are engineered with the finest and most durable detailing foams, hook and loop interface, and V-cut channels to increase airflow and cooling characteristics. Hex-Logic engineers rounded the profile of the pad for improved flex into curves and contours and smoother polishing performance. New materials and manufacturing processes improve airflow to cool foam pads and reduce the wear and tear that rips pad foam from the backing material.
The new and improved pad design builds on the tried-and-true dependability and effectiveness of the Hex-Logic concept, and takes detailing to the next level.
Blue Glazing Pad Spreads The Perfect Coat Of Glaze
Blue Hex-Logic pads are soft enough to spread a thin, even coat of glaze without cutting any extra paint off the vehicle. While paint correction uses abrasive compounds, pads, and machine polishers to remove “dead” layers of paint, finishing only requires soft foam to spread thin coats of finishing products. The soft spreading action of Blue Hex-Logic pads is perfect for applying the perfect coat of glaze with minimal product waste. Use Blue Hex-Logic pads to spread the perfect coat of glaze like Black Light, White Light, GlossWorkz, or EZ Creme Glaze. Spreading products like glaze, sealant, and wax by machine uses the smallest amount of product for maximum results with minimal product use. When used correctly, finishing pads can use one bottle to glaze dozens of vehicles by machine.
Hex-Logic Buffing Pads: Designed To Be Better
The advanced design of Hex-Logic buffing and polishing pads picks up where traditional pads fell flat. Traditional foam polishing pads have a flat face and square profile, and this dated design does little to flex and conform to curves, contours, and other simple shapes found around every automobile. Hex-Logic grooves serve many purposes for the paint correction process. The V-cut grooves into the surface draw in fresh air as the pad spins, cooling the workpiece, pad, backing plate, and machine for extended worktime and reduced wear and tear. The Hex-Logic pattern spreads polish and compound evenly around the surface for more even cut and efficient use of the entire polishing pad surface. The Hex-Logic texture also helps the pad form and flex to contoured surfaces for more contact and more even polishing results and better look over the vehicle. Don’t be fooled by old pad designs or cheap square grid knockoffs: Hex-Logic pads are superior by design for better results with more clarity and purity in the reflection of the painted finish.
Versatile For Any Polishing Job
Hex-Logic pads come in every size for every practical polishing job on any vehicle. Use Hex-Logic pads on any high speed rotary polisher, dual action polisher, or long-thrown orbital buffers for fast and even paint correction on any type of paint finish. Professional detailers and hardcore enthusiasts use machine polishers to remove swirls and scratches from paint, restore shine to metal bumpers and grilles, remove shoe scrapes from door jambs, clean oxidation and faded plastic off from headlights, and spread the perfect coat of wax or sealant over any exterior surface. Hex-Logic pads come in 4’’, 5.5’’, and 6.5’’ diameters to fit on any 3’’, 5’’, and 6’’ backing plate. Use any size Hex-Logic pad for any polishing job in any area on the vehicle. The possibilities are limitless: choose Hex-Logic polishing pads to restore a show-car shine on any garage queen, grocery getter, or weekend cruiser.
Hex-Logic Backing Material
Hex-Logic buffing and polishing pads are designed, engineered, and manufactured in the United States. Every pad uses a hook-and-loop interface backing pad to attach to every machine polisher backing plate sold by Chemical Guys. This unique breathable backing material helps wick heat away through the attachment side and advanced vented backing plates like the TORQ R5 DA series and the TORQ22D vented backing plate. Cool pads last longer and produce more consistent and even polishing results. This backing pad is a perfect fit for every standard backing plate, and leaves a quarter of an inch of the buffing pad to hang over all around. This beveled edge helps ensure that the backing plate and machine housing can never rub against the paintwork or the surface being polished. Hex-Logic Pads help restore paintwork with a scratch-free shine, seal it with durable protection of a wax coating, and protect against scrapes and knocks with the machine polisher itself. Beware of cheap knockoffs and imitation buffing pad designs! Chemical Guys Hex-Logic pads are patented and produced only with the highest grade foams, durable adhesives, and breathable backing pad materials. While cheaper foam pads melt and pull apart during polishing jobs, Hex-Logic Pads last and last for dependable detailing use on even the most intense polishing jobs.

Clean Pads Work Better
Polishing pads fill up with spent polish abrasives and removed paint residues as the job wears on. This residue and removed paint clogs pads and causes inconsistent polishing work during a job. All these residues can also turn into a hard cement-like mass inside foam, microfiber, and wool buffing and polishing pads if left to dry, which ruins the polishing abilities of the pad. The secret to maintaining polishing pads for years of reliable use is in keeping them clean. Clean out old compound, particle abrasives, and removed paint residues to keep pads soft, flexible, and ready for controlled paint removal. Keep one set of polishing pads and clean then during the job to maintain maximum effect and shorter polishing times, or change out between several sets of pads for nonstop polishing and clean them all at the end of the day for faster turnaround time. Keep a bottle of Chemical Guys Polishing Pad Cleaner and Rejuvenator on hand to clean, restore and prolong your buffing and polishing pads. The ergonomically designed Foam Pad Cleaning Brush scrubs wax and polishes out of the foam and restores its original texture. Professionals polishing lots of cars in a shop setting benefit from the fast and thorough action of the Grit Guard Universal Pad Washer, which cleans and dries all types of buffing pads on virtually any machine in seconds.
