EXCEL EVOLUTION 5” Backing Plate



The EXCEL backing plate has been designed to wring every ounce of performance from RUPES 15 and 21 polishers. Designed for fitment on Duetto, ES, MKii and MKiii machines, installation of this plate will increase the torque, balance, and power that these machines are fully capable of. Harder and faster cutting during compounding stages, smoother and quicker polishing and refining are attainable by swapping in this backing plate in favor of the factory original.
Your polisher comes alive on edges and other curved surfaces where power used to dissipate. Spacing has been incorporated into the design to negate the need for a washer mod. The engineered poly material increases safety while being used near opposing panels, and a strong Velcro backing has been utilized for the best performance out of any aftermarket plate ever released.
The thermal capabilities and increased cooling passageways of the plate mean that you no longer have to monitor temperatures and cycle out pads frequently like with previous aluminum plates. This plate offers factory usability and gives up not 1 inch for ease of use. Aptly dubbed the EVOLUTION plate, this project signifies multiple partners working together to create a real and performance minded product that will change the way you polish with a RUPES machine. TRUE RESULTS. 

Patent Pending


By installing this plate, you agree that RUPES, EXCEL, DETAIL DIVISION and SHINE SUPPLY (as well as their business entities)  cannot be held liable for damage or injury as well as waive any claim to warranty coverage for failures associated with the backing plate modification.

RUPES does not endorse any aftermarket backing plate modification. Installation of this plate is your responsibility.

I recommend the use of the Rupes pad removal tool with this plate. Velcro backing is a wear and tear item. Over time, exposure to heat while polishing will deteriorate the adhesive and can cause lifting of the Velcro. Failing to replace backing material will cause separation of the pad and velcro from the plate. Care for your tools, and inspect them before and during use.
A 30-Day warranty is offered on the backing material on the plate. This covers the Velcro only, and is limited to situations that are consistent with normal use. Excessive heat generated with microfiber pads and speed-6 for hours is beyond that scope.
