Rupes 5" Microfiber Backing Plate (Part# 980.034)
BACKING PAD FOR MICROFIBER POLISHING PADS
The BigFoot system offers the lowest vibration levels in the industry due to the precise balance relationship between the motor's counterbalance system and the accessory items used during the polishing process.
As the microfiber polishing pads are heavier than the normal foam polishing pads, RUPES has designed a special backing plate for use with the microfiber pads. The new backing plate is lighter and has a repositioned center of gravity to assure perfect balance of BigFoot with the new microfiber pads.
The ventilation characteristics of the new backing pad combined with the slots in the microfiber polishing pads effectively dissipate heat and maintain the work surface temperature at an acceptable level.
Does not fit Rupes Mark II Polishers.
