Power in the Palm of Your Hand
Part of our Paint Defect Removal Hand Sanding System, our 3M™ Paint Defect Removal Hand Sanding Foam Pad is an easy-to-hold, easy-to-use tool for sanding small areas on painted surfaces by hand, without sanding entire panels. Sized to fit between your fingers and to accept our 37 mm x 28 mm Abrasive Rectangle Sheets, this 4.4" x 2.59" pad features soft foam construction that provides conformability and support during delicate defect removal. Our Stikit™ adhesive attachment keeps the sheets secure and firmly in place. 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
This Hand Sanding Foam Pad works with our Abrasive Rectangle Sheets, also part of the system. The sheets come ready to use with a pressure sensitive adhesive coating on the backs simply press them onto the pad, and you're ready to go. The sheets stay put, even as the foam pad allows them to conform to surfaces. They remove just as cleanly, leaving an uncontaminated surface for the next sheet. This makes it fast and easy to change the sheets and to reuse them for maximum abrasive life and cost-efficiency.
