Use the largest pads possible!
The Buff and Shine 7-Inch Flexible Rotary Backing Plate is a flexible backing plate, designed to be used with 7.5- and 8-inch pads. This backing plate uses the hook-and-loop style, making it compatible with most pads on the market today. Plus, the backing plate itself is sturdy, but with the foam insert on the back of the plate, slightly elevated off the page, creates a flexible surface.
When you are looking to get a backing plate, it is because you are looking to get something to go with your polisher. When you're looking for a pad with a large surface area, then you need a backing plate that has the same. Sometimes you need to detail your vehicle quickly, yet still effectively. We don't all have the time or patience to detail by hand using an applicator, we need to break out the big tools.
When using 7.5-to-8-inch pads, you are able to cover a larger surface area in less time. Using an overlapping pattern technique, you can cover more of your vehicle's surfaces in half the time. Unlike when using a 2 or smaller inch polisher, or even working by hand applicator, you can be more confident that you are reaching all the large areas without thinking twice. Saving you time as well!
Not only that, but with The Buff and Shine 7-Inch Flexible Rotary Backing Plate you get stability, but you also get flexibility. The Buff and Shine 7-Inch Flexible Rotary Backing Plate is designed with a foam insert between the hard plastic base of the backing plate and the face of the hook-and-loop. Why is this beneficial? It is beneficial because since the foam is flexible, it will bend and shape to the surface rather than causing you pad to stall out, lift or cause a rocky application or reduced pad contact.
The Buff and Shine 7-Inch Flexible Rotary Backing Plate features a 5/8 x 11 threading, which is the standard for rotary-style machine polishes. Because of this, you can be confident that your Buff and Shine 7-Inch Flexible Rotary Backing Plate will properly connect to your rotary polisher and won't fall off as you work.
Use 7.5 or 8-inch pads.
