Orbital machines need to be kept flat on the panel, and a deep, flexible backing plate can help keep the pad perfectly horizontal. It also helps prevent the heat transfer that plagues some high-powered orbital machines when they are used with a thin backing plate. Remember to start and stop the pad on the paint surface when using orbital machines, to prolong backing plate/pad life. Care also needs to be taken when separating the hook and loop surfaces, to avoid tearing.
This Deep Dish backing plate is 123mm (5 inch) in diameter for use with a wide range of pads, including 150mm (6 inch) foams and the 123mm Supernatural Midi Microfibre Orbital Cutting Pad.
Note: suits DAS-6 polishing machines, G220 and other orbital/DA machines with a 5/16 inch male connection only - it will not fit rotary polishers or DAS-15/Big Foot style machines.
