    • 3M™ Hookit™ attachment system holds pad securely and provides quick pad change-out

    We manufacture the 3M™ Finesse-it™ Buffing Pad - White Open Cell Foam to provide the most aggressive finishing action in the 3M™ Finesse-it™ foam pad line and is designed to be used with coarser polishes, such as Finesse-it™ Finishing Material Easy Clean-Up, to effectively remove sanding scratches. It is ideal for polishing automotive OEM, marine, and aerospace coatings.

    3M™ Finesse-it™ Buffing Pad - White Open Cell Foam
    3M™ Hookit™ backing offers quick pad mounting and removal
    Waffle Face Provides Sufficient Contact Surface and Minimizes Heat Buildup
    Our 3M™ Finesse-it™ Buffing Pad - White Open Cell Foam can also be used in the 3M™ Finesse-it™ Trizact™ Paint Repair System (PDF, 742 Kb) for AOEM paint and clear coats. We developed these buffing pads with a convolute face to minimizes heat buildup and provide more contact surface than flat pads. These white, open-cell pads are beveled to prevent the attachment area from contacting the coating surface in corners and on contoured surfaces.

    3M™ Hookit™ Attachment System Holds Pad Securely and Provides Quick Pad Change-Out
    We manufacture the pads for use the 3M™ Hookit™ attachment system for quick pad mounting and removal and to hold the pad securely in place during use. Hookit™ buffing pads conveniently and firmly attach to a hook-and-loop backup disc pad (sold separately) on rotary or random orbital tools, can be removed cleanly and easily, and can be re-used again and again for the life of the pad. Finish results are dependent on specific polish used, coating type, and the tool used.

    3M™ Finesse-it™ products are an integral part of our recommended buffing system for repairing surface defects to clear coats, lacquered wood, solid surfaces, gelcoat, powder coat, industrial paint, acrylic, and glass.

    Repairs Coatings Without Repainting
    Our line of 3M™ Finesse-it™ products are specially engineered abrasives, compounds, polishes, and buffing pads to be used on OEM and baked refinish paints to remove defects, sand scratches, or swirl marks on a variety of painted surfaces. 3M™ Finesse-it™ products are an integral part of our recommended buffing system for repairing surface defects to clear coats, lacquered wood, solid surfaces, gelcoat, powder coat, industrial paint, acrylic, and glass.

    Harder Foam and Larger Articulations (Holes) Provide More Cutting Than Closed Cell Pads
    We developed our foam pads to address the unique chemical composition of evolving paint and clear coat technologies. Foam pads are generally less aggressive and produce a finer finish than wool pads. They normally operate at higher RPMs than wool pads, relying on a combination of cutting and heat buildup to slightly melt the surface coating and remove fine scratches, swirl marks, and surface marring. Foam pads range in abrasive levels determined by its softness and the cell size of the holes; the larger the hole, the more aggressive the pad. "Closed cell" pads are the least aggressive type. You can use our foam buffing pads in conjunction with polishes and are suitable to use with rotary and random orbital tools.
