A molded urethane backing plate for excellent flexibility and balance.
If German carmakers think this backing plate is good enough to use on their top-of-the-line vehicles, you can bet it is the best plate you can buy for your vehicle. BMW and Mercedes-Benz both hail these backing plates as the best because of the outstanding properties of molded urethane. This Flexible Backing Plates minimize heat transfer, flexes to hug your vehicle’s curves, and are built to last. And they are the best backing plates you can buy for your Rotary Polisher.
Molded Urethane is where it’s at. This material is flexible yet incredibly durable. This plate will last through countless, rigorous uses without falling apart or becoming unbalanced. Balancing is essential when it comes to polishers because an unbalanced plate will bounce, leaving an uneven finish. The reinforced inner construction uses steel struts molded into the center hub to give the plate stability and maintain an even surface for your pad.
Another benefit of urethane is its resistance to heat. The Flexible Backing Plate minimizes the transfer of heat from the motor to the paint to prevent burning. Spontaneous heat build-up is also reduced.
Remove and replace pads easily from the hook & loop surface. The hook & loop material is molded into the plate so it will not come off.
