For optimum results, you need quality backing plates on your dual-action
polisher. The backing plates are more important than you might think. Not
only do they hold your pad in place, a good backing plate will also be
flexible enough to conform to the curves of your vehicle and will evenly
distribute the weight and pressure of the machine. It should also absorb
some of the vibration.
The Flexible backing plates are made of high quality polyurethane which is
very durable and dampens vibration from your polisher. The polyurethane surface
is uniform and balanced so that your results will be even. And these pads will
not get hot like cheaper pads. The Velcro® brand fasteners are permanently molded to the
polyurethane so your pads will lock securely in place.
We offer 5 and 6 inch backing plates to fit most standard polishers. Use pads of
a larger size to allow proper overhang so the edge of the plate will not scratch
your vehicle. Check out our selection of buffing, polishing, and cutting pads to
see what’s right for your detailing job.
