High Quality Finishing
The 3M™ Finesse-it™ Buffing Pad - Red Foam removes the abrasive sand scratches that were created to remove small defects in automotive clear coats. You can also use this buffing pad in the 3M™ Finesse-it™ Trizact™ Paint Repair System for AOEM paint and clear coats whenever the finest finish is required. The waffle face minimizes heat buildup during buffing and helps eliminates swirl marks. The flat face increases contact area improving cut, and provides smooth feedback when running. This pad is manufactured with our hook and loop attachment system for quick pad attachment and removal and to hold the pad securely in place during use. These buffing pads conveniently and firmly attach to a hook-and-loop backup disc pad (sold separately) on rotary or random orbital tools, can be removed cleanly and easily, and can be re-used again and again for the life of the pad. Finish results are dependent on the combination of coating type, polish, and tools used.

Hook and loop attachment makes abrasive changes fast and simple, reducing downtime

Heat Resistant
We developed our line of 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 normally operate at higher RPMs than wool pads also, relying on a combination of cutting and speed to remove fine scratches, swirl marks, and surface marring. Foam pads range in abrasive levels determined by its softness and the cell size of the holes; the larger the hole, the more aggressive the pad. "Closed cell" pads are the least aggressive type. Foam buffing pads are used in conjunction with polishes and are recommended for use with random orbital tools.

Our line of 3M™ Finesse-it™ products are specially engineered abrasives, compounds, polishes, and buffing pads to be used on OEM and fully cured refinish coatings to remove defects, sand scratches, or swirl marks on a variety of painted surfaces.
