Ultimate Dust Extraction Capabilities
For high efficiency dust extraction, Festool Sanding Pads ST-STF features a multi-jet stream design that can capture up to 99% of dust and last up to 30% longer. These pads have a 9-hole design that aids in the consistent extraction of dust particles. Efficient dust extraction allows the disc and pad to run cooler, which helps with loading of the abrasive.

A Family of Versatile Pads
The ultra soft pad is ideal for rounded contours and chambers; it has an elastic structure with a hardness grade of SW. The soft pad offers high temperature durability with high edge solidarity for tough applications and universal use; it has a hardness grade of W-HT. The hard pad offers high temperature durability with high edge solidarity for flat surfaces; it has a hardness grade of H-HT. Whichever hardness level you need, these pads deliver truer running performance for smoother surfaces, less vibration and longer life. All versions have an M8 connecting thread. Use these pads with the following tools models: ETS EC and LEX 3.
