Many abrasive discs require suitable backing pads for correct operation.  The abrasive disc is securely held against the backing pad by a hook n loop system or a self-adhesive on the disc.  Unsuitable pads, or no pad at all, will result in less than optimum performance and reduced life of your sanding discs, so it really is worth investing in the correct backing pad for the job.

Our range

To meet all of your needs and requirements, Ultrimax offer an extensive range, which suit our discs and the different tools that may be used to power them.  Pad Savers and other suitable interface pads are also available at Ultrimax, to prevent the backing pad from wearing out.  It is really a sacrificial hook n loop layer, which is far cheaper to replace than the whole backing pad.   

Types of backing pads
Our backing pads are available in a range of sizes, which correspond to all standard disc sizes. Dust extraction holes are often a feature of these products, but additional features like cooling vents are also sometimes added to more complex power tools to protect the disc from overheating and extend the tool's lifespan in general.

Our brands

Ultrimax stock a number of brands of backing pads, such as 3M and Mirka, and these compliment our large range of other sanding products like sanders and sanding discs.  For example a Mirka backing pad is designed to work perfectly with a Mirka's range of dust extraction sanders, and all Mirka net sanding products such as Abranet and Autonet.
