PSA (Pressure Sensitive Adhesive) Backing
Specially formulated pressure sensitive backing is available on all types of JH Rhodes pad material. The exposed side of the adhesive is engineered to adhere to most platen materials under demanding slurries and processes. PSA Backing is available in formulas ranging from High-Holding to Low Tack / Easy Release.

While most of our polishing pads are available in a variety of standard sizes, some configurations, including custom, may require minimum quantity orders and/or product modifications. Please consult with a JH Rhodes technical representative for information on your order request.
