Introducing the 3M™ Perfect-It™ Random Orbital Polishing System — a professional-grade set of tools, pads and polishes - typically used in detailing shops, re-engineered for the collision repair industry. Unconventional, but welcomed change in process that allows you to get that show car shine, as if the car had never been touched. It's paint finishing redefined.
Developed for increased throughput and consistent finish regardless of the job, 3M™ Cubitron™ II sanding discs, sheet rolls, sanding belts and cutting and grinding discs cut 30% faster and last 2x as long vs. other premium abrasives. Featuring our Precision Shaped Grain (PSG) – essentially, sharp peaks that slice, not plow, through paint and metal – Cubitron II is designed for the most efficient cut and even wear. This allows it to run cooler and require less pressure vs. traditional abrasives. Excellent for lighter-weight metals like aluminum, and for reducing fatigue among your body repair technicians.
Get a deeper, glossier finish without the mess, the stress or the rework of compounding.

Trizact™ 8000 removes very fine defects in painted surfaces, taking the place of compounding. Follow with our specially formulated 3M™ Perfect-It™ 1-Step Finishing Material and purple 3M™ Perfect-It™ 1-Step Foam Finishing Pad, which deliver the cut of compounding with the fine finish of polishing.
