3M™ Finesse-it™ Knit Buffing Pad features 100% wool fibers knit into a polyester fabric backing for applying Finesse-it™ Finishing Material or Finesse-it™ Final Finish. These pads are ideal for buffing automotive OEM, marine and aerospace coatings. Our wool pads are also effective for removing finishing abrasive sand scratches, oxidation and other paint surface defects.

Made for Optimal Results with Finesse-it™ Products
Ideal for compounding and polishing, 3M™ Finesse-it™ Knit Buffing Pad is trimmed to 15/16", allowing for better access into hard-to-reach areas. These pads are perfect for applying Finesse-it™ Finishing Material or Finesse-it™ Final Finish products. Finish results are dependent on specific polish used, coating type and the tool used.

Easy On and Off with the 3M™ Hookit™ Attachment System
These pads are manufactured with our 3M™ Hookit™ attachment system for quick pad mounting and removal and to hold the pad securely in place during use. Hookit™ buffing pads conveniently and firmly attach to a hook-and-loop backup disc pad (sold separately) on rotary or random orbital tools. They can be removed cleanly and easily and can be re-used again and again for the life of the pad.

Benefits of Using Wool Pads
Our wool buffing pads are generally more aggressive and easier to control than foam pads. They have a greater available cutting surface area due to the presence of thousands of fibers, which provide faster cutting action than foam pads. Wool fibers provide even distribution of material by holding the polish better. The nap helps wool pads glide and conform to contours, making them easier to control and requiring less pressure to be applied than foam pads. Because of their cutting ability, wool pads are effective for removing sanding scratches and perform best on rotary type buffing tools. Depending on the polish type, individual technique, composition of the coating and the tool used, finishing with a wool pad may require a follow-up step with a foam pad and polish to remove micro-marring or swirl marks.
