The Perfect Finish to the Automotive Collision Repair Process

When used with 3M™ EX Ultrafine Machine Polish, our 3M™ Perfect-It™ Ultrafine Foam Polishing Pad delivers an extremely refined cut to completely remove polish swirls and holograms without compromising the high gloss of the polished panel. Its foam construction and specially designed face holds polish and prevents slinging during critical final paint finishing. This pad has a 4” diameter for control and access in small areas and in tight spaces. A reverse taper protects the edge of the backing pad, helping reduce damage to the automotive finish.

Another Perfect-It™ Top Performer

We developed these foam pads as part of our Perfect-It™ Paint Finishing System to keep pace with evolving paint and clear coat technologies. Foam pads are generally less aggressive and produce a finer finish than wool pads, ideal for the critical polishing steps of the paint refinishing process. 3M™ Perfect-It™ Ultrafine Foam Polishing Pads are best used in conjunction with Perfect-It™ EX Ultrafine Machine Polish and attach quickly to rotary polishers. 3M recommends using this pad with 3M™ Buffer, Pistol Grip, 3 Inch, PN28354.
