The Mirka Pad Protector is designed to to be used with Abranet® and Autonet sanding products.

The open mesh design employed in Abranet® and Autonet products may allow the hook material of a backing plate to protrude through the mesh. If this occurs, the backing plate hooks will degrade quickly. Even worse, the hook material can cause surface marring! Avoid this problem by installing a Pad Protector.

This simple device will not only protect the backing plate and surface being sanded, it also increases adhesion of the sanding disc to the backing plate. Since the Pad Protector is only about 1/8" thick, in most cases it will not affect the leveling capability of the disc.

Available in 3" & 6" diameters (3" part #9947). Conversion pads qualify for quantity discounts.
