TORQ Tools designed high performance backing plates for finer finishing and faster results on every polishing job. The R5 Rotary Polisher Backing Plate with Hyper Flex Technology fits the universal rotary polisher 5/8’’ - 11 output shaft thread. You can pick up any rotary polisher from any brand sold throughout the world, and the TORQ R5 Backing Plate will fit. The low-profile backing plate design uses high-strength high-density foam for extreme durability and extended performance at high polishing RPMs. Hyper-Flex Technology allows the backing plate to flex and conform to every vehicle curve and contour, ensuring maximum buffing pad contact and a finer finish in less time than traditional backing plate designs. A thin tapered edge makes it easier to sneak your fingertips between the backing plate and pad, avoiding torn pads and backing plates caused by clumsy removal. Simply screw on the standard 5'' backing plate to run 5’’ buffing pads and scrubbing brushes over any flat or curved body panel. Tackle any intense paint correction or headlight restoration job quickly and easily with your favorite rotary polisher and the best backing plate for your buffing pads: the TORQ R5 5'' Rotary Polisher Backing Plate with Hyper Flex Technology.
Polisher backing plates connect 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. Slap your favorite buffing pad onto the TORQ R5 Backing Plate and get to work polishing away swirls, scratches, and water spots from any car. The durable backing plate screws on to your machine polisher via the universal fit 5/8’’ - 11 spindle thread. Simply press the rotary mechanism locking button to hold the spindle in place, then screw the backing plate on until it locks snugly in place. The TORQ R5 backing plate uses high quality hook and loop material to hold onto buffing pads and accessories with a solid grip. The thin tapered edge facilitates easy buffing pad changes with reduced chances of tearing the pad or backing plate. This reduces wear and tear, and maximizes polish work time for finer results in less time. It’s no accident that detailers around the world love TORQ R5 backing plates: they’re designed to be perfect.
TORQ R5 backing plates are designed to flex and conform to the surface. Traditional rotary backing plates are too thick and too stiff to work through curves and contours. Ever try fitting a square peg in a round hole? It doesn’t work! Polishing in a curve with a stiff backing plate puts too much pressure on the edges of the pad, creating too much friction and heat that can leave a ring of marring marks, holograms, or burns in the paint. TORQ R5 backing plates with Hyper Flex technology conform to every curve and contour, filling the space more evenly with the whole pad for better polishing results. Choose from the whole TORQ R5 backing plate lineup for every polishing job, large or small, with any dual action, large-throw orbital, or rotary machine polisher.
Friction creates wear and tear. When polishing for extended periods of time, backing plates, machine polishers, and buffing pads wear out, melt, and break. TORQ R5 backing plates are built with high-quality foams, high-strength adhesives, corrosion-resistant threads, and fine hook and loop interface padding. The sculpted curves at the top of the backing plate are lower profile to increase workability in small areas, but also help dissipate heat through the expanded surface area. The extra airflow exposure takes away excess heat that prematurely melts buffing pads and destroys backing plates. Less heat buildup also extends the worktime of polishes and compounds. Longer worktime means more even polish abrasive breakdown, more even polishing, and a finer finish in fewer passes. Save time, save equipment, and save money with the TORQ R5 backing plate lineup from TORQ Tools.
