Dual Action Backing Plates
Probably the best backing plates available on the market today – as used by major European car manufacturers in their factories. The flexible urethane design provides several advantages over rigid backing plates.

  1. The velcro hook and loop fastening material is moulded into the plate, eliminating the risk of delamination.
  2. The urethane body reduces spontaneous heat build-up when moving from flat to contoured surfaces and vastly reduces heat transfer from the motor of the polisher.
  3. The design is reinforced internally using steel struts moulded into the centre hub, which gives superior strength whilst keeping the weight down.

The steel 5/16 UNF threaded post fits many popular dual action polishers, including the Meguiars G220 Dual Action Polishing Machine and the Kestrel DAS-6/DAS-6 PRO Dual Action Polishing Machine, and allows quick and easy plate exchanges.
