Back-up pads are a vital piece to your welding or fabrication work in order for projects to operate smoothly. They offer increased airflow to your spinning disc to provide a cooler operating environment; they also give your abrasive discs a longer operating life. When utilized, these pads can speed up the process of grinding and sanding in both wet and dry conditions making their flexibility an intriguing feature. We offer a selection of plastic and ribbed pads that are compatible with 4½-, 5-, and 7-inch discs. Give your disc the longevity it deserves for your specialty welding and fabrication projects.
