Alpha GV Backer Pads
Backer Pad For Use on Makita GV5000 Sander

Size: 4"
Max RPM: 4,500
For Use On: Makita GV5000 Sander
Description: M8-1.25 Male


Since its introduction, the Makita® GV5000 Sander has become one of the preferred
tools for marble polishing applications. However, its backer pad required the use of
messy glues and adhesives. In order to meet the demand for a hook and loop backed
pad that is designed specifically for this tool, we introduced the Alpha® GV Backer Pad.
The first hook and loop backer pad for the GV5000, is designed to fit on the GV5000’s
unique spindle and attachment configuration. This backer pad is ideal for bullnosed
edges and flat surfaces. Marble fabricators and tile contractors can now utilize hook
and loop backed products such as Alpha® Sandpaper and Alpha® Felt Wheels on their
GV5000 polisher with excellent results. The Alpha® GV Backer Pad provides just the right
amount of flexibility to successfully polish curved areas yet remains rigid enough to polish
flat surfaces. The Alpha® GV Backer Pad will accept other types of hook and loop backed
products, thus making this tool a truly versatile machine that can be used for stone, tile,
metal, wood and glass. If you own or plan on owning a Makita GV5000 Sander, the Alpha®
GV Backer Pad is for you.

3" ALPHA FLEXIBLE BACKER PAD
Our Price: $25.00

The Alpha® Flexible Backer Pads were developed as a part of the wet polishing system that Alpha® introduced to the North American markets. This wet polishing system quickly became the accepted method of polishing. The Alpha® Flexible Backer Pad proved to be very durable and soon became the backer pad of choice among fabricators, tile contractors, monumentalists and restoration workers. The Alpha® Flexible Backer Pads are hook and loop backed and will accept Ceramica, Sandpaper and Felt Wheels. All users of polishing equipment will love the quality and long life of these backer pads. Extremely flexible, these backer pads are ideally suited for tough contours and inside curves, allowing the user to get in tight corners with ease. Available in 2", 3", 4", and 5" versions, these pads come with the standard 5/8"-11 thread, commonly seen on most of the polishing tools in use today. Some metric sizes are available on request. Whether you are a fabricator, tile installer, monumentalist or restoration worker, Alpha® Flexible Backer Pads are for you. Highly resistant to the rigors of daily use, these flexible backer pads are the best on the market.

3" ALPHA RIGID BACKER PAD
Our Price: $25.00

Alpha Professional Tools® first introduced rubber backer pads with the AEP-458 electric polisher to promote the concept of wet polishing, which then became the accepted method of polishing. Alpha® recognized the need to add a rigid version of this backer pad to its product line for straight edge or flat surface polishing applications. We realized that Ceramica, with a flexible backer pad, was too flexible for these applications and produced wavy finishes. Alpha® Rigid Backer Pads served to eliminate the wavy finish by keeping the Ceramica flat to the polished surface. Although not the best alternative compared to Twistouch Turbo for this application, fabricators and tile contractors use it with good results. Restoration workers find that the rigidness of the pad enables them to work in small areas such as corners or staircases. Large machine manufacturers recommend flexible diamond discs for use on their automatic edge polishing machines specifically for the bullnose application using the Alpha® Rigid Backer Pad. Hook and loop backed, like the flexible pads, they also accept Ceramica, Sandpaper, and Felt Wheels. The Rigid Backer Pad reduces surface distortion and wavy results on straight edges. Available in 3", 4" and 5" sizes, the Rigid Backer Pad is exclusive to Alpha Professional Tools®. It comes in the standard 5/8"-11 thread commonly found on most polishing tools today. Some metric sizes are available on request. Super rigid and flat, there is no other backer pad like this.
