Our 3M™ Trizact™ Performance Sanding Abrasive Disc combines fast cut and consistent, refined finish for your auto body projects. This P3000 sanding disc features our Trizact™ structured abrasive – its microscopic three-dimensional mineral structures resemble pyramids. This patterned, precise abrasive on a flexible foam backing removes fine sand scratches and leaves surfaces ready for polishing.
About Our Trizact™ Abrasives
For more predictable finishes and improved, consistent quality, 3M™ Trizact™
products feature microreplication — small 3-dimensional structures are reproduced and then uniformly distributed over the surface of the abrasive. These patterned, precise mineral structures contain multiple layers of abrasive mineral. As the structures wear, fresh, sharp mineral is exposed. The result is that the abrasive cuts faster, allows for precise finish control, and stays sharper longer, meaning you use fewer discs and save money as well as time.
About Our Hookit™ Attachment System
The Hookit™ hook-and-loop feature makes disc attachment, removal, and re-attachment clean and easy, and facilitates use and re-use of the disc for the extent of the abrasive life. Hookit™ discs have brushed nylon loop backings. They instantly grip the J-shaped hooks on 3M™ Hookit™ disc pads. It's simple: just slap the disc on and start sanding. The disc removes just as cleanly and easily, and can be re-used again and again for the extent of its abrasive life.
About the 3M™ Body Repair System
Even a small repair can seem complex at first. So 3M's Body Repair System simplifies the entire automotive body repair process by dividing it into four stages:
Stage 1 — Prepare.
This stage includes pulling dents, removal of paint and rust and efficient, effective masking of the area.
Stage 2 — Fill.
This stage involves patching holes with reinforced filler and smoothing and shaping filler before painting.
Stage 3 — Paint.
This stage includes painting the area and blending and smoothing primer and paint.
Stage 4 — Finish.
The final stage for showroom-grade results: removing small defects, sealing and polishing clear coats and other painted surfaces.
3M supplies premium products such as abrasives, tapes, body fillers and tools for every stage. This system helps you work easily, efficiently and successfully across the entire body repair process.
