    3M™ Perfect-it™ Foam Polishing Pad is a soft foam buffing pad used to buff out fine scratches created from compounding steps. The waffle face gives you greater surface contact area than flat surface pads over contoured surfaces, minimizes heat buildup during buffing and helps eliminates swirl marks. It also helps the pad hold the polish and reduce slinging.

    We designed this grey buffing pad to be used in conjunction with our 3M™ Perfect-it™ EX family of polishes specially developed to quickly remove compounding swirls

    Better Paint Demands Better Products
    We designed this grey buffing pad to be used in conjunction with our 3M™ Perfect-it™ EX family of polishes specially developed to quickly remove compounding swirls. The pad removes the compounding swirl marks left by either foam or wool pads and can also be used in the 3M™ Perfect-it™ Paint Finishing System for paint and clear coats repair when the finest finish is required. Finish results are dependent on the combination of coating type, polish, and tools used.

    The Evolution of Paint and Clear Coat
    We developed 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 operate between 1200 and 2000 rpms to remove fine scratches, compound swirl marks, and surface marring. Foam buffing pads are used in conjunction with machine polishes and are suitable to use with rotary and random orbital tools.

    3M™ Perfect-It™ system was created to produce show-room grade finishes with deep color and rich gloss. Our system uses a progressive series of abrasives, buffing pads, and proprietary polishes across four stages of repair

    The 3M™ Perfect-It™ Suite of Products
    Our 3M™ Perfect-It™ system was created to produce show-room grade finishes with deep color and rich gloss. Our system uses a progressive series of abrasives, buffing pads, and proprietary polishes across four stages of repair. The stages consist of sanding, scratch refinement, compounding, machine polishing, and swirl elimination. The level of work and stages needed for paint repair depend on the severity of the paint imperfection and Perfect-It™ provides an effective solution for any level of clear coat and paint repair.
