Omni Cubed Offers No-Spin Backer Pad

Posted on 15 February 2013 by cradmin

Omni Cubed’s new No-Spin Backer Pad is designed to provide faster results and less damage to surrounding vertical surfaces during polishing or refinishing. It has a rigid aluminum Velcro backer, with the addition of a free-floating disc on top. A protective rubber bumper surrounds the disc so when it is pushed against a backsplash, wall or other surface, the disc stops spinning while the pad continues to spin beneath it. It acts as a built-in roller guide to allow fast and precise cut patterns, while reducing the damage caused by the edge of spinning polishing pads. The backer has 5/8-11 threads and includes an aluminum spacer washer to protect against wear caused by polisher spindles. They are available in 4-, 5- and 7-inch sizes and have a maximum RPM of 3,000. A patent is pending on this product.

Polishing Pro Offers New Backer Pad

Posted on 03 August 2012 by cradmin

Polishing Pro Systems offers the new patent-pending Zero° Burn Backer Pad for polishing natural and engineered stone. The pad is designed to save time and money, and is designed to make it virtually impossible to burn the surface—or even the edges of quartz surfacing. It reportedly turns an ordinary grinder or polisher into a multi-directional polisher. It eliminates the need for resin pads that are intended to reduce heat during the polishing process. The multi-directional action of this backer means that the harder you push, the tighter the elliptical passes become. The tighter the elliptical passes become, the more that heat is dissipated out of the backer, not the stone. This reverse heat transference that makes burning virtually impossible. The multi-directional action cross-cuts the stone with each revolution of the machine, which speeds up the polishing process. It also results in a tighter polishing pattern, which results in a higher sheen. It is available in both rigid for surface and bullnose polishing, and flexible for ogee or other edge polishing.
