The Padco Classic Pad Applicator is supplied with a single microfibre pad. The thousands of fibres hold more paint than a regular paint pad and spread the paint faster and easier than a paint brush. Replacement Padco Classic Paint Pad Refills are available to purchase separately.
Self-tapping threads in the Padco Pad Applicator handle allows attachment to many standard extension poles, including the Manns Lightweight Extension Pole.
Please Note: This product is not suitable for most solvent-based wood oils, paints and varnishes as they can dissolve and melt the glue that holds the paint pad together. To prevent this from happening, only dip the surface of the pad into the wood finish, never submerge the whole pad into the finishing product. Using the Padco Paint Pad Tray can help to avoid overloading the paint pad.
Ensure that the Padco Applicator is clean and dry before use to avoid cross contamination of products. If not, use an appropriate cleaner and allow to dry thoroughly before use.
After use, ensure that the Padco Classic Pad Applicator is cleaned with an appropriate cleaner to remove all contaminants. This will prolong its life.
As a guide, water-based products can usually be cleaned using warm soapy water. Solvent-based products are normally cleaned with white spirit or a dedicated brush / pad cleaner, but keep in mind to only clean the surface and never submerge the pad in the cleaning solution, as explained in the Overview above. Always refer to the cleaning instructions on the tin of the product being applied.
