I use this guide from detailedimage.com when choosing/using different pads..
Choosing the Proper Pad (Return to Top)
When it comes to selecting the proper pad for polishing, you want to always make sure you match the aggressiveness of the polish with the aggressiveness of the pad. A mismatched combination could add imperfections such as hazing, micro-marring or holograms in your paint, so it is important to properly select the right pad.
Our current pad offering in order from most aggressive to least aggressive looks like this:
Purple Foamed Wool
Yellow Cutting Pad
Orange Light Cutting Pad
Green Very Light Cutting Pad
White Polishing Pad
Black Finishing Pad
Blue Finessing Pad
Purple foamed wool pads are the most aggressive pad we offer. These are typically used on rotary buffers, but can also be used on a dual action buffer or random orbital. What makes them so effective on a rotary buffer is that it offers lots of cutting power with less risk of damaging the clear coat. Because of the air between the wool fibers, the paint remains cooler at high speeds, compared to a foam pad with similar cutting ability. This is often the choice of professional detailers when using a compound or medium cutting polish. We always recommend following up with finer polish and pad combinations to achieve maximum results when using a purple foamed wool pad.
Yellow cutting pads are the densest foam pad, making them the most aggressive in terms of cutting ability. The yellow cutting pads are commonly used for heavy correction using a compound on neglected vehicles. Yellow cutting pads are often used instead of a purple foamed wool pads when looking for maximum cut on a random orbital or dual action buffer. We always recommend following up with finer polish and pad combinations to achieve maximum results when using yellow cutting pads.
Orange light cutting pads are one of the work horse pads for many professional detailers. They are most commonly used to apply medium cutting polishes and do a very good job removing swirls, scratches and other imperfections in the paint. We always recommend following up with a finer pad, such as a white polishing pad or black finishing pad whenever using an orange pad.
Green very light cutting pads are becoming more and more popular, especially with the advancements in polishes. They are typically used to apply medium cutting polishes or finishing polishes, when imperfections are not too deep. Green pads are unique in the sense that you can get good correction out of them, but you also have the potential to finish down nicely. If you decide you want even more depth and gloss, we recommend following up the green pad with a black finishing pad.
The white polishing pad is one of our most versatile polishing pads. It is commonly used to apply medium cutting polishes, finishing polishes, and chemical polishes. White pads have the ability to finish down nicely without the need of a finer pad, however, you may opt for a finer pad to get the maximum depth and gloss.
Black finishing pads are commonly used to get increased depth and gloss with a finishing polish. They are also used to apply all in one products, paintwork cleansers, glazes, sealants, and liquid waxes. Very versatile pad that should be in any detailers arsenal.
Blue finessing pads are our softest and most porous pad. They are commonly used to apply last step products as they have virtually no bite to them. Blue pads are sometimes used to burnish the paint with the finest polish, Menzerna PO85RD, to bring out the maximum depth and gloss.
