3M™ Finesse-it™ Natural Buffing Pad is made with select lamb’s 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. The dense pile surface holds the polish for even, consistent material distribution while minimizing splatter and jumping.
- Provides the most aggressive cutting action in the Finesse-it line for fast removal of sanding scratches in conjunction with 3M™Finesse-it™ polishes
- Dense natural pile conforms to contours for even finishing
- Aggressive cut quickly removes oxidation and scratches with less heat buildup
- 3M™ Hookit™ attachment system holds pad securely and provides quick disc/pad change-out
- Pads combine with buffers, random orbital tools, and variable speed polishers to produce desired final finish

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
