FEATURES AND BENEFITS
These are the best backing plates you can buy for your Rotary Polisher which is made of moulded Urethane. This material is flexible yet incredibly durable.
Another benefit of urethane is its resistance to heat. The Flexible Backing Plate minimizes the transfer of heat from the motor to the paint to prevent burning. Spontaneous heat build-up is also reduced.
This plate is ideal fit for the Porter Cable 7424XP because it has a generous edge. Even if you turn the pad onto its side accidentally, there is an inch of flexible, beveled urethane between the edge of the plate and the inner construction. The backing plate fits any polisher that accepts a 5/16″ thread.
These backing plates are designed to fit most dual action polishers including the Porter Cable 7424XP, Meguiars G110v2 and the Griots Garage Random Orbital Polisher.
Lake Country is a very popular brand in buffing pads. You cannot think about foam polishing pads without thinking about Lake Country. They’ve been designing and manufacturing polisher accessories since 1977.
Smart Pads™ Professional Foam Pads are a combination of premium materials and intelligent design. The foam is imported from Germany, where surface enhancement technology is flourishing. It’s smart because it compensates for some of the common pitfalls of machine polishing, i.e. pad separation, burning, and gauging. These pads stay firmly bonded to the VELCRO® brand fasteners to ensure your pad stays put as you polish. The density of the foam minimizes the transfer of heat and friction while features like a raised lip and curved edge help prevent contact between the paint and the backing plate.
Lake Country manufacturing introduced CCS Technology by 2006, CCS stands for Closed Cell Structures. These are pockets of closed foam, where products are less apt to soak into the foam. The CCS pockets act like small reservoirs for excess polish or wax. When more product is needed on the pad’s work surface, it is drawn up a center column of open-cell foam within each pocket and distributed back onto the work surface. CCS Technology prevents polishing foam pads from drying out and reduces product waste.
Lake Country Smart Pads™ are available in 4 inch, 5.5 inch, 6.5 inch dual action pads for dual action polishers, and 7.5 inch and 8.5 inch curved edge pads for rotary polishers. The 7.5 inch pads may also be used with dual action polisher with a 6” backing plate. Choose from five different “cuts”, referring to the ability of the pad to level the clear coat. More aggressive pads will be able to remove or diminish swirls and scratches while softer foam is suitable for wax or sealant application.
