Power in the Palm of Your Hand
Part of our Paint Defect Removal Hand Sanding System, our 3M™ Paint Defect Removal Hand Sanding Block 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 1.3" x 1.06" block becomes a miniature straight line sander right in the palm of your hand. Our Stikit™ adhesive attachment keeps the sheets secure and firmly in place during hand sanding. 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 Block 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 cylinder, and you're ready to go. The sheets stay put even during aggressive sanding. 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.

The Paint Defect Removal Hand Sanding Block is part of our 3M™ Paint Defect Removal Hand Sanding System (PDF, 421.8 Kb) — small, advanced abrasives and hand tools that save time and money removing paint nibs and other small defects. It's another way that 3M applies science to the lives of auto repair technicians, consistently improving your efficiency, throughput and value as you prepare painted surfaces.
