Question hex logic pads

Hi all,

having a few problems with my hex logic pads, maybe I am doing something wrong.

when using them, both white and yellow pads have collapsed in the middle.

outer side are fine. I have only just the pads on one car yet.

any pointers?? pictures are attached.

EDIT: using a das pro 6 machine, starting on speed 1, then pushing to 5.


thanks

Often caused by too much heat. Maybe using too much downward pressure or high speed or both.

What machine are they used with?

Too much heat from using them on too high speed. Did you use them with a rotary polisher? If yes then turn the speed down. Also get new pads...these are "toast"
