    Re: NEW! DA Foam Discs and Backing Plates

    I was using them with the meguiars da standard backing plate. The Velcro is not coming off. But is not sticking to the plate. Is like the Velcro it doesn't have a lot of stickiness, but it's ok I will buy the new ones when they become available I love everything about meguiars products and this new pads look better specially the backing Velcro part.

    Sorry, Tommy, no plans for 3" pads at this time.

    Thanks Mike, that's just the info I was looking for!

    Can't wait to get my hands on these new discs...

We can go out for a drive without her makeup and she looks fine. If I want to take the black one out, it is three or four hours in the "bathroom" to get ready.

    Presumably the existing 4" pads (sold as pro and retail for DA Power System) aren't going anywhere though, correct? (Are those going to eventually adopt the new cutting/finishing foams as well?)

    Re: NEW! DA Foam Discs and Backing Plates

    Mr. Stoops,

    Regarding the new pads... machine washable, I assume?

    Regarding the new backing plates... these are very interesting to me. For one... there are zero 'cooling holes.' Secondly- the fiberglass core seems to depart from the popular foam or hybrid foam substrate of a typical D/A backing plate. So... I would guess the fiberglass core does act as a heat sink from the electrical motor/ spindle + pad abrasion as a LC or B&S BP does? Also, how 'firm' is the plate? Looks pretty 'hard' for good cutting.

    I welcome with open arms the 'new' 3" BP.... was really, really sick of using a small adjustable wrench and the machine wrench to detach the old 3" BP AND stripping threads in the aluminum of the plate! (Didn't happen often but did happen, lol.) And I know the previous 3" BP was originally meant for damp/wet sanding duties.

    Thanks!
    -Gabe

    Re: NEW! DA Foam Discs and Backing Plates

    It's great to have seen the new pads at SEMA. I think the thinner profile is definitely the way to go. With the new 3" bp it would be nice to see 3" pads to go along with the 3" mf pads and plates offered. I under stand as of present they are not in the plans but with many using 3" 2" and even 1" machines for fine detail I see a niche market not being serviced by many.

    The existing 4" foam pads sold under the Wx204 part numbers have been discontinued.... well, the part numbers have been discontinued. The pads are still being made but only under the consumer part numbers of G350x. Not sure if the foam construction will change on these any time soon though.

    Yes, Gabe, the pads are indeed machine washable. Comments that we're getting from the early test group is that they wash out more thoroughly than the older pads. The new backing plates are quite stiff, which provides better cut as you surmised. Heat from the tool itself is not much of an issue, really, but very aggressive use of the tool can create a fair bit of heat at the pad/backing plate interface. Even so, we have never had cooling holes on our 5" backing plate for use with the DA Microfiber System as proper use should not create sufficient heat to cause problems.

    And yes, the old 3" backing plates could be problematic with the interchangeable inserts. The new one is great little plate, with the same design and construction as the 5" and 6" plates. Oh, and the built in strobe effect (AKA the white stripes on the label) means you no longer need to mark your backing plate with a Sharpie or tape to visualize pad rotation!
