5, 6 Inch DA Backing Plates - Durable and Flexible For High-speed DA Polishers

The 5 inch, 6 inch DA backing plates are ideal for high-speed DA polishers, boasting durability and efficient heat management through a Smart design. They support up to 12000 OPM with 5/16" diameter thread and accommodate 5-inch or 6-inch polishing pads.  

Durable material construction

The DA backing plate works with high-speed DA polishers with 5/16” diameter thread and 5-inch or 6-inch foam pads. The 14mm thickness with heat-resistive Polyurethane material construction decreases vibration while reducing the heat transfer from the polisher, better serving high-speed polishers, and supporting up to 12000 OPM DA polishers.  It allows them more than 10,000 times use.

Heat Management And Tapered Edge - The Smart Design

The 8-hole vented design offers easy airflow, helping the plate cool down and providing great thermal endurance. The tapered edge helps to prevent contact between the plate and the paint surface when the polisher leans to the surface.

Perfect Balancing

The center of the plate is ready with a bolt to attach a polisher and surrounded by the six(6) reinforced steel struts to maintain balance and apply pressure evenly to the pad.
