Back-up pads are used in combination with sanding machines such as orbital sanders, random orbital sanders, and angle grinders. They are designed to attach to the spindle or motor shaft of the sanding machine and provide a stable base for attaching the sanding disc or abrasive pad.

What is a back pad
A back-up pad is an essential component of a sanding tool. It is a rigid or semi-rigid disc that attaches to the sander's spindle or motor shaft and provides a stable base for attaching the sanding disc or abrasive pad.
Attach with hook and loop
The back-up pad typically has a hook-and-loop or adhesive surface that securely attaches to the sanding disc or abrasive pad, holding it in place during sanding. Some back-up pads may also have a dust collection system to help control dust and debris generated during sanding.
Provide support and stability
The primary purpose of the back-up pad is to provide support and stability for the sanding disc or abrasive pad, ensuring that it stays securely in place during sanding and allowing for more precise and consistent sanding results. It also helps to absorb some of the vibration and shock generated during sanding, which can reduce operator fatigue and improve overall sanding performance.
Available in different sizes and shapes
The selection of the appropriate back-up pad for a specific sanding application is important, as it can affect the quality of the sanding results and the overall lifespan of the sanding tool. Back-up pads are available in different sizes and shapes to match the sanding disc or abrasive pad being used, and may have different densities, materials, and designs to suit different sanding applications and preferences.
