Lake Country CCS Yellow Cutting Foam Pad
Lake Country's CCS Yellow foam is the most aggressive of the foam cutting pads. Use these pads as a last resort to remove deep scratches and severe oxidation that does not come out with the less aggressive foams.
These aggressive pads will most often require additional polishing to remove any compounding haze or "buffer trails" inflected from the heavy foam.
Lake Country CCS pads also feature curved edges on the face of the pad for easy use and tapered velcro to eliminate scratches while polishing.

CCS stands for Collapsed Cell Structure.
The face of a CCS pad is covered in strategically placed pockets. These pockets are locations where the foam cells have been closed. Polish does not absorb into these closed cell pockets, leaving more product on the pad's surface and on the paint. This polish-saving design gives polishes a longer working time, which results in more successful detailing.
CCS Pads work on every type of paint, from conventional clear coats to the harder, scratch-resistant clear coats used by Mercedes Benz, BMW and many others
Lake Country's range of foam compositions, combined with the right chemicals, provides you with a prescription to correct almost any paint imperfection on any paint finish.
What are the benefits of CCS Technology?
Slows rate of polish absorption – As discussed above, the pads are slow to absorb products and therefore the paint benefits from a longer working time. The same is true of liquid waxes and sealants.
Improves operator control – CCS pockets gradually release polish as needed by the operator. Since these areas are not absorbing polish, they
serve as little reservoirs until the excess polish is needed.
Prevents pad skipping – CCS pockets reduce surface tension allowing the operator to run pad flat on a working surface. Basically, the CCS pockets break up the smooth surface of the foam to eliminate the sticking and skipping that occurs when two perfectly flat surfaces meet.
Creates less heat – CCS pockets provide several points where the foam is not completely touching the paint. This reduces friction and therefore heat generated between the pad and the paint.
The tapered edge was designed to optimize performance regardless of type of machine used.CCS foam pads provide ample surface contact to effectivelthe y work the paint. The CCS pockets are small so they don't affect the amount of foam continuously touching the paint during operation. Each CCS Pad measures 7/8" of an inch thick, perfect for even distribution of heat and product. The CCS Pad's tapered edge was designed to optimize performance, regardless of the type of machine used.
The longer working time afforded by the CCS pads allows you to work problem areas with greater success. The pockets reduce the amount of heat created so even though you're working the paint longer, there is no additional risk to the paint.
Each CCS pad features VELCRO brand hook and loop fasteners covering the entire back of each pad to secure to a hook and loop backing plate.
