Buff and Shine 3-inch Rotary Xtra Soft Backing Plate

The perfect backing plate to keep your pad flat on the paint!

The Buff and Shine 3-inch Rotary Xtra Soft Backing Plate features a thick, flexible back plate that allows is to easily conform to the shape and curve of body panels for maximize pad contact. The hook-and-loop face of the Buff and Shine 3-inch Rotary Xtra Soft Backing Plate means that it is compatible with most modern buffing pads. The Buff and Shine 3-inch Rotary Xtra Soft Backing Plate sports a 5/8 x 11 threading that will match with any rotary machine polisher for a secure hold. With a 3-inch diameter on the face, the Buff and Shine 3-inch Rotary Xtra Soft Backing Plate will accommodate any 3- or 4-inch pads, making it a perfect choice for spot buffing or working on smaller, niche panels!

When you are buffing out the scratches and swirls on your car's paint, it is tempting to only correct the ones on the large, flat panels and call it a day. And while this may be even to turn a few heads, a discerning eye will quickly see that you have neglected the smaller panels on your car. The rocker panels, the A-pillars, and the door frames also need a good once over to make sure your car looks great bumper to bumper! Unfortunately, these panels are often too small to get with a 6-inch buffing pad, so you'll need to use ones smaller than that. With the Buff and Shine 3-inch Rotary Xtra Soft Backing Plate, you'll be able to use pads as small as 3-inches to expertly polish those small, more niche areas!

It's not always the panel that determines the size of pad you'll need though! Sometimes, the scratch determines this as well! Since you are removing clearcoat from the paint surface when you correct scratches and swirls, you want to make sure you are only removing the necessary amount. Afterall, the standard clearcoat is only 2 mils thick! If you are using a 6-inch pad, you are removing much moreclear coat than necessary to correct a single random scratch. Since the Buff and Shine 3-inch Rotary Xtra Soft Backing Plate allows you to use 3-inch pads, you can be sure that you are not removing more clearcoat than you absolutely have to!

Often, when you are working on curved panels, if you are using a backing plate that is too rigid, your pad won't be able to conform to the curves in the surface. When this happens, a portion of your pad will be in contact with the paint, and a portion will be free spinning in the air. This can lead to increased product splatter and inconsistent results. In addition to that, you will also have a harder time controlling the polisher itself! The Buff and Shine 3-inch Rotary Xtra Soft Backing Plate has a thick flexible foam inset that allows it to bend and conform to any curves, providing better results and a less aggravating buffing experience!

Pad and backing plate manufacturers, like Buff and Shine, realized that the old ways of attaching buffing pads to the polisher were not efficient or were just unsafe. That is why they decided to switch to manufacturing pads and backing plates that use hook-and-loop to adhere pads to the polisher. Hook-and-loop provides a secure hold on the pad but is still easy enough to remove that you can quickly switch between pads! And that is exactly why the Buff and Shine 3-inch Rotary Xtra Soft Backing Plate feature hook-and-loop technology to keep your pads right where you want them, on the backing plate!

The 5/8 x 11 threading of the Buff and Shine 3-inch Rotary Xtra Soft Backing Plate make sure that it can be used with any rotary or circular polisher!
