Mount these Cushion Pads onto your Backpads for a smoother grind and more gentle polish. Recommended for use under fine grade abrasives starting from 220 Grit and finer. Their flexibility helps your abrasives sand or polish the contours of rounded and domed workpieces and gives them a shock-absorption effect as well.
Simply stick them onto the Backpad before applying an Abrasive. They come in 3 flexibility options: Bumpon™, Medium-Flex and Soft-Flex.
Please note the 4 INCH Diamter is currently available only in the Bumpon™ Stiffness / Flexibility level.
