Precision engineered for the perfect finish
FLEX Rotary Backing Plates are the Mercedes-Benz of rotary backing plates, period! These precision-engineered rotary backing plates are specifically designed for professional detailers and body shops that require a robust backing plate that will be able to withstand thousands of hours of paint polishing. FLEX Rotary Backing Plates are available in 1, 2, and 3 inch diameter, making them ideal for surgical buffing" on small and intricate body panels.
When FLEX set out to introduce a compact, lightweight polisher for spot repair and precision polishing, they knew a set of backing plates and pads had to follow. After years of research and development, FLEX introduced the PE8 Kompakt Rotary Polisher along with a line of rotary backing plates and foam pads to use with the new machine.
FLEX Rotary Backing Plates are manufactured to the highest quality standards, starting with the one-piece flexible polyurethane construction. A flexible backing plate is able to conform better to curves and contours, ensuring the pad stays completely flat, thus reducing the chance of instilling holograms. A one-piece design is more robust because it removes the mechanical stress that would be associated with a 2 or 3 piece design.
FLEX Rotary Backing Plates also feature a steel plated threaded insert for added durability. The molded-in hook and loop material will not separate, even after extended polishing sessions at high speeds. Simply put, FLEX Rotary Backing Plates are designed for the long haul.
FLEX Rotary Backing Plates utilize a 5/8 inch diameter shaft that accommodates the FLEX PE8 Kompakt Rotary Polisher and the FLEX PE14-2-150. For best results, we recommend using a Rotary Backing Plate Extension to further the distance between the body of the polisher and the backing plate, increasing precision and safety.
Available in 1, 2, and 3 inch diameter.
