Festool sanders are similar to SurfPrep sanders in terms of quality and performance but with a lower price point. You may have opted for a Festool sander to save on costs. But the good thing is, you can still get the added benefits of SurfPrep foam pads without having to switch sanders.

These foam pads from SurfPrep are hook and loop, which means they are easy and quick to attach and detach from your sander. This feature is especially useful when switching between grits or sanding different areas of the same project. Plus, you can get them in either 1/2″ or 5mm thicknesses, depending on whether you need more flexibility or rigidity.

While SurfPrep generally offers foam pads for Festool, you’ll need to match the correct size and type for your sander. This way, you can get exactly what you need and not end up with a foam pad that doesn’t fit. Now let’s check out the foam pad options that will work with your specific Festool sander model!

SurfPrep has recently discontinued their standard foam pads for Festool sanders, but they have replaced them with these ProFoam pads for superior sanding performance.

Plus, they have clog resistant dust extraction systems and self sharpening grains for consistent sanding quality throughout your project.

Triangle SurfPrep Foam Pads

For triangle detail sanders like the Festool Delta Sander DTS 400 Sander, SurfPrep also has Triangular ProFoam pads (Use code RAY10 to get 10% off your order) that fit perfectly onto the triangular shape.

5″ Round SurfPrep Foam Discs

When it comes to Festool 5″ round sanders such as the Festool ETS 125 and Rotex 125, SurfPrep also has 5″ ProFoam discs (Use code RAY10 to get 10% off your order) available.

Round sanders like the ETS 125 and Rotex 125 are popular for their speed and affordability. And with these SurfPrep foam discs, you can take your round sander to the next level.

6″ Round SurfPrep Foam Discs

And for 6″ Festool round sanders like the ETS 150/5, SurfPrep also offers 6″ foam discs (Use code RAY10 to get 10% off your order).

Benefits of Foam Sanding Pads

We know that foam sanding pads give you a more efficient and effective sanding experience, but how so?
