Rotary Backing Plate
Traditionally, you had to use large 7.5” or 8.5” pads with a rotary (circular) polisher. The option of using smaller pads just wasn’t available. Though these large pads cover more area faster, some prefer the increased control of a smaller pad. That’s why we now offer the Rotary 4 ¾” Flexible Backing Plate. This little plate gives you the same stability and quality of the larger backing plate, but it can be used with a 6.5” D.A. pad.
The 4 ¾” Flexible Backing Plate is made of flexible, molded urethane. It bends to allow the pad to conform to the curves of your vehicle. The result is an even finish with less risk of buffer marks. Inside the plate, steel struts are molded to the center hub for greater stability and balance. Your backing plate will remain balanced through countless uses so you always get an even finish.
Another benefit of urethane is its resistance to heat. This backing plate minimizes heat transfer from the polisher to the paint to prevent burning, and spontaneous heat build-up is reduced.
The 4 ¾” Flexible Backing Plate features Hook & Loop backing to accommodate our 6.5” D.A. pads.Change pads quickly and easily by pulling one off and pressing another onto the backing plate. Please note: You must use this small rotary backing plate with the 6.5” D.A. Pads. Do not use the 6.5” pads with a larger rotary backing plate because you run a greater risk of scratching the paint.
Polish how you want to, and we’ll supply the tools! The Rotary 4 ¾” Flexible Backing Plate allows you to use 6.5” D.A. pads on your rotary (circular) polisher.
