3M™ Perfect-It™ for Today's Harder Clear Coats
Developed to keep pace with evolving paint and clear coat technologies, choose the Perfect-it™ Paint Finishing System when the finest finish is required for every level of clear coat and paint repair. An integral part of that system, we designed the 3M™ Perfect-It™ Low-Linting Wool Compounding Pad with 100% wool for your most aggressive scratch removal applications.

Fast and Furious
Today's wool pads have evolved as well. They maintain the aggression, but shed the cloud of lint that many associate with wool pads. Wool pads have undeniable advantages, especially on today's much harder and more scratch resistant clear coat. Wool not only cuts faster than foam, but it stays cooler by creating less friction and dissipating heat through the wool fibers, making it preferable for heat-sensitive areas of a car, boat, or plane, such as spoilers and bumpers.

Wool pads also cut down on the bumping that is typical of foam pads, meaning the operator gains a smoother and more controlled application. Wool glides easily over panels, whether flat or contoured. While it may load with product more quickly that foam, spurring the wool fibers restores performance. Hold the pad flat against the part for a more even application and to reduce slinging.

Quick Connect Design
This pad has a unique quick connect design. It's easy to attach or remove pads to polishers, and they perfectly center each pad every time. The performance and convenience benefits of these pads set them apart from all pads on the market.

With the adapter's sliding ring, you can easily attach or a pad in seconds. But when the locking system is engaged, the adapter provides a reliable connection between the pad and polisher to ensure a secure and stable connection.

Perfect-it™ Paint Finishing System
Follow sanding and scratch refinement with progressively finer 3M™ Trizact™ Hookit™ discs to remove scratches entirely in step 3 of the 3M™ Perfect-it™ Paint Finishing System. Work a 2' x 2' area at a time with a rotary buffer and 3M™ Perfect-It™ EX Rubbing Compound and our 3M™ Perfect-It™ Low-Linting Wool Compounding Pad. Suggested buffer speed: 1,200 — 1,800 rpm. Our wool pad cuts faster and keeps the surface cooler. Follow up with 3M™ Perfect-It™ EX Machine Polish (Step 2) to remove any swirls from the previous step. Finish with 3M ™ Perfect-It™ EX Ultrafine Machine Polish at a buffer speed of 1,200 — 1,800 rpm to eliminate any fine marks for a perfect finish.
