3M Finesse-it Natural Buffing Pads are made with lambs wool hide, trimmed to 20 mm length to offer a more aggressive cut than longer-fiber pads. The natural hide holds each fiber individually, which minimizes lint discharge, while its dense pile surface holds the polish for even, consistent material distribution while minimizing splatter and jumping. Designed for applying Finesse-it polishes, these pads are ideal for removing finishing abrasive sand scratches, oxidation, and other paint surface defects on a

  • LAMB'S WOOL CONSTRUCTION: Constructed from lamb’s wool hide, trimmed to 20 mm length, for aggressive cutting and minimized lint discharge
  • CONFORMABLE: This pad's wool nap conforms to contours for even finishing
  • FAST CUTTING: Wool pads are more aggressive and easier to control when compared to foam
  • QUICK AND EASY PAD CHANGES: The 3M™ Hookit™ Attachment System allows for easy pad changes and helps optimize tool uptime
  • TOOL VERSATILITY: Pads combine with buffers, random orbital tools, and variable speed polishers
  • EFFECTIVE PERFORMANCE: Thanks to their cutting ability, wool pads are effective for removing sanding scratches, oxidation, and other paint surface defects

  1. What makes the 3M™ Finesse-it™ Natural Buffing Pad unique compared to other buffing pads?

    The 3M™ Finesse-it™ Natural Buffing Pad is made of natural lambswool and provides a high level of cut, yet still produces a fine finish.

  2. Where can I use the 3M™ Finesse-it™ Natural Buffing Pads?

    This product is ideal for use on clear coats, gelcoats, and paint surfaces in automotive and industrial applications.

  3. How many buffing pads come per case?

    The case contains 50 buffing pads total. Each inner pack includes ten individual pads that are five-and-a-quarter inches in diameter.

  4. Can these be used with any type of buffer or polisher?

    Yes! These natural wool buffing pads work well with either electric or pneumatic rotary buffers up to speeds of around 2000 RPMs.

  5. What kind of maintenance do these require?

    . To maintain peak performance from your pad we recommend routinely cleaning it after each use using warm water and mild soap/detergent. A designated washing machine may also be used but avoid typical laundry detergents as they may negatively affect the properties inherent within the wool fibers which could result in reduced lifespan/performance overtime.

Finesse-it™ Natural Buffing Pad

The Finesse-it™ Natural Buffing Pad is perfect for buffing automotive OEM, marine, and aerospace coatings. When used with 3M™ Finesse-it polishes, this pad can quickly remove finishing abrasive sand scratches, oxidation, and other paint surface defects. However, a follow-up polishing step with a finer pad may be required to completely remove swirl marks. The pad is designed with the 3M™ Hookit™ attachment system, which allows for quick pad mounting and removal, and holds the pad securely in place during use. Hookit™ buffing pads can be easily attached to a hook-and-loop backup disc pad (sold separately) on rotary or random orbital tools, and can be re-used again and again for the life of the pad. The finish results are dependent on the specific polish used, coating type, and the tool used.

Wool Buffing Pads

Compared to foam pads, wool buffing pads are generally more aggressive and easier to control. They have a greater available cutting surface area due to the presence of thousands of fibers, which provide faster cutting action than foam pads. Wool fibers hold the polish to provide even distribution of material and require less pressure from the operator. The nap helps wool pads glide and conform to contours, making them easier to control than foam pads. Wool pads are effective for removing sanding scratches and perform best on rotary type buffing tools. However, depending on the polish type, individual technique, composition of the coating, and the tool used, finishing with a wool pad may require a follow-up step with a foam pad and polish to remove micro-marring or swirl marks.

Finesse-it™ Products

Finesse-it™ products are a line of specially engineered abrasives, compounds, polishes, and buffing pads designed to remove defects, sand scratches, or swirl marks on a variety of painted surfaces.
