We manufacture 3M™ Finesse-it™ Knit Buffing Pads with wool fibers knit into a polyester fabric backing for applying Finesse-it™ Finishing Material or Finesse-it™ Final Finish. These pads are ideal for buffing automotive OEM, marine, and aerospace coatings. These wool pads are also effective for removing finishing abrasive sand scratches, oxidation, and other paint surface defects.

3M™ Finesse-it™ Knit Buffing Pad
The professional's choice for repairing automotive finishes
We trim the length of the Finesse-it™ Knit Buffing 85078 pads to 15/16" making it ideal for compounding and polishing in hard to access areas while the lengthier nap of the 85079 pads provide good conformability over irregular surfaces. Finish results are dependent on specific polish used, coating type, and the tool used. These pads are manufactured with our 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.

Our line of wool buffing pads are generally more aggressive and easier to control than foam pads. They have a greater available cutting surface area due to the presence of thousands of fibers and these fibers provide faster cutting action than foam pads. Wool fibers hold the polish to provide even distribution of material and require less pressure from the operator. The nap helps wool pads glide and conform to contours, making them easier to control than foam pads. Because of their cutting ability, wool pads are effective for removing sanding scratches and perform best on rotary type buffing tools. Depending on the polish type, individual technique, composition of the coating, and the tool used, finishing with a wool pad may require a follow-up step with a foam pad and polish to remove micro-marring or swirl marks.
