Polyurethane Polishing Pads

Partner to the automotive industry: Polishing Pads for paint sealing – professional and versatile

As a polishing pad manufacturer, we serve as a specialized partner to the automotive industry. We deliver innovative products for paint finishing and post-treatment of freshly painted surfaces to polishing machine manufacturers.

We offer you a broad range of ready to use prepolymer polishing pads. Our first-class polishing pads provide the right geometry for any painted surface and for a wide range of polishing requirements. In comparison to common sheepskin applications, the polishing material can be adjusted individually to your needs, as polyurethane polishing pads compensate for uneven areas by smoothing the surface. Highly thermal and dimensionally stable polishing pads from FoamPartner are washable, reusable, and offer a long service life. In addition, they impress our customers with their outstanding tear and wear resistance.

We develop and manufacture customized polyurethane polishing pads and polishing discs used for professional paint and surface finishing. Many automotive manufacturers, automotive suppliers and painting companies use polishing pads from FoamPartner in their professional surface finishing.
