  • TORQ10FX, TORQX, Porter Cable 7424XP, Griot’s 6’’, Meguiar’s G110, Meguiar’s MT300

How It Works

The 5” Molded Urethane Flexible Backing Plate backs up any 5.5” buffing and polishing pad on your dual action polishing machine. The durable backing pad is made with injection molded urethane, a strong fiberglass base, and an aluminum stabilization disc for rugged dependability on extended polishing jobs. The 5” DA backing plate attaches to any dual action polisher that uses 5/16” spindle thread accessories, including the TORQ10FX, TORQX, and Porter Cable 7424XP. The hook-and-loop fasteners grab onto any Chemical Guys foam or microfiber buffing pad, or carpet bristle brush with a solid grip through any task. Back up your favorite buffing and polishing pads for any compounding, finishing, scrubbing, and spreading jobs in and around the vehicle. Cut through thick oxidation and deep defects with a cutting pad and heavy compounding polish. Refine away light scratches and restore glossy shine with a finishing polish and soft polishing pad. Slap on an extra soft finishing pad to spread wax and sealant without breaking a sweat. Attach a large carpet and upholstery brush to break up set-in stains from floor mats and seats without tiresome rubbing and scrubbing. Choose the Molded Urethane Backing Plate for any extra large detailing job with your favorite Dual Action Polisher.

Built For Durability

The backing plate connects your buffing and polishing pad to your machine polisher. Without a backing plate, you cannot use a machine to polish your paintwork, scrub carpets, or spread wax. The solid build quality of the Molded Urethane Backing Plate combines layers of reinforced fiberglass and urethane with an aluminum support disc. Solid rivets hold the spinning backing plate together throughout normal buffing and polishing usage on your favorite dual action polisher. The Molded Urethane Backing Plate features rugged construction that can take the heat of long polishing sessions and full car paint correction details. This solid yellow backing plate can take on any compounding, polishing, and waxing job over any vehicle, large or small. High density hook-and-loop interface material grabs ahold of any buffing pad, upholstery brush, or other DA polisher accessory with a firm grip that holds tight as the buffer head spins and orbits. When you’re done, the fittings easily release the accessory with just a gentle pull between it and the backing plate. Take a cue from the professionals and choose the backing plate that works just as hard as you do: the heavy duty Molded Urethane Dual Action Backing Plate.

Built For Compatibility

Molded Urethane Backing Plates are designed to work with you, rather than get in your way. The low-profile backing plate uses a beveled edge profile that tapers to a point. This simple design helps slip the spinning pad underneath roof racks, door mirrors, into grilles and vents, and underneath interior parts like seats and arm rests. This tapered edge also makes it easier to slip between the backing plate and buffing pad or brush, and gently pull to remove any accessory without tearing or damaging either piece. This Molded Urethane Backing Plate is designed to work with the widest array of dual action polishers on the market. The standard 5/16” attachment thread is used by tried-and-true polishers like the TORQ10FX, TORQX, Porter Cable 7424XP, Meguiar’s MT300 and G110, Griot’s Garage 3” and 6” machine, and many others. When you need to use 5.5” buffing pads, polishing pads, brushes, and spreaders, choose the 5” Molded Urethane DA Backing Plate.

Built For Tough Correction Power

Machine polishers remove scratches by removing the damaged paint. Think of paint like skin: swirls are tiny scratches in the surface of the paint, but if you gently exfoliate the damaged paintwork, you’ll remove all the scratches. Backing up a buffing and polishing pad with the Molded Urethane Backing Plate creates more friction and more correction power to cut away deeper paint defects, swirls, scratches, and oxidation. Pair up the Urethane Backing Plate with your favorite cutting pad and heavy duty paint correction compound to remove deep defects, restore clarity, and enhance glossy shine and deep reflections in any weathered paint finish. Try out the Molded Urethane Backing Plate yourself, and see why professionals and hardcore detailing enthusiasts choose these durable yellow backing plates for intense paint correction jobs.
