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 hook & loop surface is 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.
