Our 3M™ Perfect-It™ EX Machine Polish is the highest-performing machine polish we’ve ever introduced for removing compound swirl marks in collision repair. It stays wet longer, letting you use less polish for the same refined finish. Yet it also holds better on the pad for reduced sling and easier cleanup. You get smooth, polished surfaces without compound swirl marks – faster, and at less cost.

3M™ Perfect-It™ EX Machine Polish
Available in a variety of sizes
More Wet Time, Less Sling
You never thought one machine polish could deliver both of these important advantages — until now. Our 3M™ Perfect-It™ EX Machine Polish stays wet longer on the substrate, meaning you don't need to keep reapplying it and using valuable material during the process of compound swirl removal and polishing. This can be especially important in places where heat and humidity are common inside or outside of the shop. Yet the polish also holds better on the pad, reducing the mess, waste and cleanup time associated with sling. Quite simply, our Perfect-It™ EX Machine Polish (PDF, 721 Kb) is our highest-performing machine polish for better material cost efficiency, lower process times and refined, swirl-free finishes after compounding.

An Excellent Finish, Fast
At the heart of this specially formulated polish is aluminum oxide, the same mineral abrasive used in many of our top-performing abrasive discs and sheets. In fact, fine grade aluminum oxide discs are part of the Scratch Refinement stage of our Perfect-It™ Paint Finishing System, which includes our EX Machine Polishes. This abrasive cuts quickly and uniformly in a very fine grade to remove swirl marks and tiny sand scratches.

Part of the 3M™ Perfect-It™ Paint Finishing System
3M™ Perfect-It™ EX Machine Polish is integral to our 3M™ Perfect-it™ Paint Finishing System (PDF, 2.6 Mb). Developed to keep pace with evolving paint and clear coat technologies, the Perfect-it™ Paint Finishing System is ideal for when the finest finish is required for every level of clear coat and paint repair. This system uses a progressive series of abrasives, buffing and compounding pads, and specially formulated polishes across four stages of repair to produce showroom grade finishes with deep color and rich gloss.

For the best compound swirl-free finish on all colors, we recommend using Perfect-It™ EX Machine Polish with black Perfect-It™ Quick Connect Foam Polishing Pads PN05707 or PN33285.

The Science of Better Paint Finishing from 3M
With its formula that stays wet and still reduces sling, our Perfect-It™ EX Machine Polish is an integral part of our Perfect-It™ EX Paint Finishing System of polishes and pads, as well as our overall Perfect-it™ Paint Finishing System which also includes advanced abrasive discs and cloths. For compound swirl mark elimination and polishing, it is another example of how 3M applies science to the lives of collision repair professionals, consistently improving your efficiency, throughput and value as you prepare painted surfaces.

Customer Reviews
3M™ Perfect-It™ EX Machine Polish is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gorgeous !! Purchased this along with 3M Marine perfect - it boat wash, # 5 Heavy oxidation compound, & perfect - it wax . We have a dark Ranger bass boat that was showing a dull yellowish tint. Either needed a boat wrap or a body shop. After I wet sanded through my stages, 800 grit up to 2000 grit, I washed it and began with the compound and so on. This boat probably never looked this factory when it rolled off the line. We are just blown away at how beautiful our boat turned out using only these products. Nothing can compare.
