Removes dirt nibs and other paint defects
Power in the Palm of Your Hand
Part of our Paint Defect Removal Hand Sanding System, our 3M™ Paint Defect Removal Abrasive Rectangle Sheet is shaped for cutting out small paint nibs in painted surfaces by hand without sanding the surrounding areas. This 37 mm x 28 mm (approx. 1" x 1-1/2") rectangular abrasive sheet acts as a miniature straight line sander, right in the palm of your hand. It features durable film backing that can be used for dry sanding or wet sanding. Coated aluminum oxide abrasive is optimized to resist loading and remain sharp when sanding small areas. Choose from a range of fine grades for removing small defects, dirt nibs and sand scratches.
The Abrasive Rectangle Sheet fits onto our specially-designed handheld sanding blocks and backing pads, also part of the system, to form a small microsanding tool for powerful sanding in minimal repair areas. Our Stikit™ adhesive attachment keeps it secure and firmly in place during hand sanding. Technicians do not need to sand most or all of a painted panel to remove small defects, saving time and materials. And minimal compounding and polishing means much less time is required for cleanup.
Our Stikit™ Attachment System
Our Abrasive Rectangle Sheets come ready to use with a pressure sensitive adhesive coating on the backs — simply press them onto the Paint Defect Removal Hand Sanding Block, Foam Pad or Rubber Pad and you're ready to go. The rectangles stay put even during aggressive sanding. They remove just as cleanly, leaving an uncontaminated surface for the next rectangle. This makes it fast and easy to change Abrasive Rectangle Sheets among tools, and to reuse them for maximum abrasive life and cost-efficiency.
