Buffing pads are circular instruments used to polish metal and other hard surfaces, including paint. They are typically constructed of microfiber, foam, or wool.
While some pads are designed for manual use, others are power tool-attachable. Additionally, they might be helpful for applying wax or sealer.
Buffing pads work to remove debris and give surfaces an even, smooth finish in a manner akin to that of fine sandpaper.
Buffering pads are a smart choice if you’re applying polish or wax to a surface because they are absorbent, flexible, and create a barrier between hand and the surface and material which is being applied.
Typically, two materials are bonded together to create buffing pads. Usually, foam serves as the major component, holding the polish and making touch with the paint.
The backing material, which is often hook and loop and is also known as Velcro, lets the pad adhere to the polisher’s backing plate while yet being easily detachable.
In pads made of microfiber or wool, the fibre is frequently glued to a foam core before being attached to a Velcro backing.
While tufted wool pads or other synthetic or natural fibre pads were once commonly used in buffing and polishing operations, foam buffing pads have since taken their place.
The Global Buffing Pad Market accounted for $XX Billion in 2021 and is anticipated to reach $XX Billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of XX% from 2022 to 2030.
The IKONI 2000 and IKONIC 3000 line of chemical mechanical planarization (CMP) buffing pads have been released by Dow Electronic Materials.
IKONIC 2000 buffing pads target copper barrier, HKMG, and buffing applications, whereas IKONIC 3000 buffing pads were initially intended for use in bulk copper polishing.
All pads in the IKONIC CMP buffing pad platform are designed for usage at the 28nm manufacturing node and below.
The pads are highly tunable and can be customised to address process specific requirements.Dow’s volume manufacturing methods and commitment to process control further enhance performance by ensuring consistency and reliability in their customer’s processes.
When compared to the industry-standard IC1000 buffing pad, the IKONIC 4000 series offers step-out defectivity performance, which is a 70% improvement.
