The Chemical Guys TORQ R5 Dual-Action
Backing Plate is the most advanced backing plate for dual-action
machines on the market! Designed using the most innovative custom
high-density foam for a durable backing that is tear-resistant, the TORQ
R5 Red Backing Plate is built to last. Not only is the backing plate
durable but after rigorous testing, Chemical Guys specially engineered
the TORQ R5 Dual-Action Backing Plate to contain a revolutionary R5 cold
air induction system. This cold air induction system spools in cold-air
and releases it into the pad during polishing to reduce heat caused by
The TORQ R5 Dual-Action Backing Plate is designed with special
mesh-hardened ABS plastic and ultra-high density flexible foam to resist
any wear and tear from performing extended polishing jobs. The special
mesh-hardened ABS plastic is very durable and allows the high density
foam to flex enough to contour to the bends and curves of your surface.
The low-profile of the TORQ R5 helps protect surfaces - especially when
working close to vents, hood scoops, spoilers, and fenders.
Here are 5 reasons why the TORQ R5 Backing Plate is better than its
Built and Designed with Performance in Mind
Here at Chemical Guys we are all fanatics for cars and motorsports, we
specially designed the R5 Dual-Action Backing Plates with the same
concept as drilled & slotted brake rotors that you find on modern
high-performance race cars. Often times those cars are traveling well
over 100mph and need to brake fast around corners and turns. The design
behind drilled & slotted rotors is that heat gets evenly distributed
thoroughly and cools down faster to prevent any brake failures. We took
that same design and incorporated it into the R5 Dual-Action Backing
Plate to cool down the pads faster and prevent any damaging wear & tear
on the pad.
The TORQ R5 Dual-Action Backing Plate minimizes the heat transfer by
pulling in the cool air while the plate is spinning from the top ports
and side slots. The constant airflow is then released via the center
screw and the outer openings cooling the pad that is attached on the
Advanced High Density Foam
The TORQ R5 Dual-Action Backing Plate utilizes an adaptive high density
foam that bends, molds, contours, and adapts to variable surfaces with
great ease to deliver perfect results every time. The innovative design
of R5 Backing Plate was aimed for the professionals, factories, and OEM
grade so it can resist the harshest use and abuse.
The double body hook-and-loop’s durability ensures that no matter what
make, style, or variation of pads you use it will securely and safely
adhere to the TORQ R5 Backing Plate.
All of the TORQ R5 Dual-Action Backing Plates are reinforced with Inner
Stability-Struts, these stability struts are constructed utilizing steel
struts that are bolted into the center hub to give the backing plate
stability while maintaining a great even surface for pads.
