A molded urethane backing plate for excellent flexibility and balance.
If German carmakers think this backing plate is good enough to use on their
top-of-the-line vehicles, you can bet it is the best plate you can buy for your
vehicle. BMW and Mercedes-Benz both hail these backing plates as the best
because of the outstanding properties of molded urethane. These Dual-Action
Flexible Backing Plates minimize heat transfer, flexes to hug your vehicle’s
curves, and are built to last. And they are the best backing plates you can buy
for the Porter Cable 7424 or 7336 Dual-Action Polisher.
Molded Urethane is where it’s at. This material is flexible yet incredibly
durable. This plate will last through countless, rigorous uses without falling
apart or becoming unbalanced. Balancing is essential when it comes to polishers
because an unbalanced plate will bounce, leaving an uneven finish. The
reinforced inner construction uses steel struts molded into the center hub to
give the plate stability and maintain an even surface for your pad.
Another benefit of urethane is its resistance to heat. The Flex Backing Plate
minimizes the transfer of heat from the motor to the paint to prevent burning.
Spontaneous heat build-up is also reduced.
Remove and replace pads easily from the Velcro surface. The Velcro is molded
into the plate so it will not come off.
The Flexible Backing Plate LC-43-085DA measures 3.5 Inches in Diameter and is perfect for our 4" Spot Buff Pads.
These pad are great for the Porter Cable 7424 because it has a generous lip.
Even if you turn the pad onto its side accidentally, there is an inch of soft,
beveled urethane between the edge of the plate and the inner construction. The
backing plate fits any polisher that accepts a 5/16” thread.
Use the backing plate preferred by some of the leading car manufacturers in the
world to put the final touches on their vehicles. Our Dual-Action Flexible Backing Plate provides the safest, most durable
surface for your pads so that you get the best performance possible from your dual-action polisher.
