The Nanolex Hybrid Medium and Heavy Cutting Wool Pad offers the advantages of both natural wool fibers and a synthetic backing.
The natural fibers of this pad are mechanically separated and cut to a specific length. This means that all hairs have the same length and a proportional result. The advantage of natural fibers over synthetic fibers is that the natural fibers naturally try to come up straight after they have flattened during polishing. In addition, natural fibers will coagulate much less quickly than synthetic fibers.
The fibers are glued in a 100% synthetic backing and not on a natural backing such as skin. Wet natural backings dry very badly so that the pad will last much less. By combining natural fibers with a synthetic backing you get the best of both worlds!
