When most detailers buff out imperfections and defects on the paint surface, they tend to only really focus on the larger body panels. While this is good enough if people are only taking a quick glance at your car, it won't do if people are really taking a good look at your car. There are many parts of the car that are much smaller and difficult to buff out that need to be paid attention to achieve the perfection you desire. Places like your A-pillars, door frames, door handles, etc. are not able to be properly buffed out using 5- or 6-inch pads. For these areas you need a smaller pad. And for a smaller pad, you need a smaller backing plate! The Buff and Shine 3-Inch Uro DA Backing Plate is the perfect size to accommodate 3- or 4-inch pads that will be small enough to buff out those niche and hard to reach areas!
Because most buffing pads on the market today have moved on to hook-and-loop style attachment, the Buff and Shine 3-Inch Uro DA Backing Plate was designed in the same manner! Hook-and-loop offers a much stronger, consistent hold between the backing plate and the pad, minimizing the risk of the backing plate becoming detached during use. However, the pads are still easy to remove when you need to swap to a new, clean pad after the previous one is saturated.
The Buff and Shine 3-Inch Uro DA Backing Plate was designed with a foam insert between the hard plastic base of the backing plate and the hook-and-loop face. This offers better surface contact as you work on curved surfaces. Because the foam is more flexible than plastic, it will bend and shape to the surface rather than causing your pad to stall or the pad to lift on one end, causing reduced pad contact.
