Remove Defects, Sand Scratches, and Swirl Marks

Identifiable by its red and white design, with the 3M wordmark stamped on its backing, the 3M™ Finesse-it™ Buffing Pad comes in both 3- and 5-inch diameters. To achieve the best results on a variety of clearcoats, use the 3-inch pad when running between 3,000 and 6,000 rpm on a rotary polisher or between 10,000 – 12,000 rpm on a random orbital polisher. The 5-inch buffing pad should run between 3,000 – 6,000 rpm on a rotary polisher or between 10,000 – 12,000 rpm on a random orbital polisher.

Securely Attached for Better Buffing

This pad is manufactured with the 3M™ Hookit™ attachment system for quick pad attachment and removal. Hookit™ buffing pads conveniently and firmly attach to a hook-and-loop backup disc pad (sold separately) on rotary or random orbital tools. They can be removed cleanly and easily and can be re-used again and again for the life of the pad. Finish results depend on the combination of coating type, polish, and tools used.
