The 3M™ Finesse-it™ Buffing Pad - Orange Foam Black Loop

The 3M™ Finesse-it™ Buffing Pad - Orange Foam Black Loop is a high-quality buffing pad that provides a deeper face for more contact surface and less heat buildup. These orange buffing pads are perfect for final and extra fine finishing steps for automotive OEM clear coats. They are also great for removing sand scratches or swirl marks from previous finishing steps. Additionally, they can be used in conjunction with the 3M™ Finesse-it™ Trizact™ Paint Repair System for AOEM paint and clear coats.

The 3M™ Finesse-it™ Buffing Pad - Orange Foam Black Loop is designed with the 3M™ Hookit™ attachment system for quick pad mounting and removal. This system also 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. They can be removed cleanly and easily, 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.

3M Foam Pads

3M developed this line of foam pads to address the unique chemical composition of evolving paint and clear coat technologies. Foam pads are generally less aggressive and produce a finer finish than wool pads. They normally operate at higher RPMs than wool pads, relying on a combination of cutting and heat buildup to slightly melt the surface coating and remove fine scratches, swirl marks, and surface marring. Foam pads range in abrasive levels determined by its softness and the cell size of the holes; the larger the hole, the more aggressive the pad. "Closed cell" pads are the least aggressive type.

You can use these foam buffing pads in conjunction with polishes and they are suitable to use with rotary and random orbital tools.
