A necessity for spot-buffing!
The Buff and Shine 3-Inch Rotary Backing Plate will make your spot-buffing work much easier than ever before! Small enough to accommodate 3- or4-inch pads, the Buff and Shine 3-Inch Rotary Backing Plate allows you to work on small panels or correct smaller sections of a panel without having to remove more clearcoat than you need to. The flexible plastic of the Buff and Shine 3-Inch Rotary Backing Plate makes will allow it to contour to the shape of curved panels to allow better pad contact while buffing. The Buff and Shine 3-Inch Rotary Backing Plate is designed with standard hook-and-loop backing, making it compatible with most modern buffing pads. Sporting a 5/8 x 11 threading, the Buff and Shine 3-Inch Rotary Backing Plate is perfect for use with any rotary or circular polisher.
Whether you are working on smaller body panels or just need to spot-buff a particularly annoying scratch, 5 or 6-inch pads just won't cut it. If you are working on smaller panels, larger pads will leave a lot of the pad hanging over the edge of the panel. This will either decrease the efficiency of the pad or worse, cause clearcoat burn throughs on the edges (which already usually have thinner clear coat than the panel face). Also, if you are only trying to buff out a single scratch, using a larger pad than necessary means you will be removed more clearcoat from the rest of the panel than you really need to, which is always best to avoid. Luckily, the Buff and Shine 3-Inch Rotary Backing Plate will allow you to use pads 3 or 4-inch pads, meaning you can use a pad small enough for your specific job!
A big part of paint correction is making sure that you are always maintaining even pad contact. If only part of the pad is touching the surface, your pad is not able to work as effectively as it could be. In addition to that, the machine could be even more difficult to control as it is more likely to "walk" you along the panel. However, ensuring total pad contact is especially tricky and sometime impossible if you are working on curved panels. But, thanks to the flexible plastic of the Buff and Shine 3-Inch Rotary Backing Plate, the backing plate will bend and conform more easily to the body panel, ensuring that the pad has even contact!
Hook-and-loop is highly regarded as the safest and most convenient way to secure pads to backing plates. That is why most modern buffing pads are designed with this technology. Hook-and-loop provides a strong grip that will keep the pad securely adhered to the backing plate. However, it is also easy to remove when your pad is saturated, and you need a new one. The Buff and Shine 3-Inch Rotary Backing Plate was designed with hook-and-loop technology in mind and thus is compatible with most modern buffing pads.
The 5/8 x 11 threading of the Buff and Shine 3-Inch Rotary Backing Plate allows it to be used with most circular or rotary machine polisher. This threading will make sure that it has a solid hold that will prevent the backing plate from coming loose during use!
Use 3 or 4-inch pads.
