3M™ Scuff-It™ Paint Prep Gel is a one-step scuffing agent that makes panel preparation faster, easier and more thorough. Used in conjunction with Scotch-Brite™ Hand Pads (sold separately), Scuff-It™ Gel produces a ˝key-cut˝ scratch pattern on the surface that improves paint adhesion.

Turbo Charge your Scotch-Brite™ Pad for Scuff Sanding
A scuff pad or sandpaper alone cuts "valleys" into the surface that can result in low paint adhesion. Our 3M™ Scuff-It™ Paint Prep Gel works with your Scotch-Brite™ Pad to create a more jagged scratch that locks in the application of primer or paint.
The combination of pad and gel makes surface scuffing a quick, easy application requiring minimal elbow grease. Scuff-It™ Gel features a specifically formulated abrasive composition that provides a faster cut than other prep gels, and its unique formula clings to panels and other vertical surfaces, yet rinses off easily with water.
