Why is it important to use a backing pad with sanding discs?

Using a backing pad with sanding discs properly allows for airflow behind the sanding disc which substantially increases the life of the disc from 30% to 50%. This increased airflow additionally allows for debris to flow out improving contact and sanding effectiveness.
