Flex Rotary Backing Plates are manufactured to the highest quality standards, starting with the one-piece flexible polyurethane construction. A flexible backing plate is able to conform better to curves and contours, ensuring the pad stays completely flat, thus reducing the chance of instilling holograms. A one-piece design is more robust because it removes the mechanical stress that would be associated with a 2 or 3 piece design.
Flex Rotary Backing Plates also feature a steel plated threaded insert for added durability. The molded-in hook and loop material will not separate, even after extended polishing sessions at high speeds.
Flex Rotary Backing Plates utilize a 5/8 inch diameter shaft that accommodates the Flex PE8 Kompakt Rotary Polisher and the FlexPE14-2-150. For best results, we recommend using a Rotary Backing Plate Extension to further the distance between the body of the polisher and the backing plate, increasing precision and safety.
