3M™ Finesse-it™ Knit II Buffing Pads are manufactured with wool fibers knit into a polyester fabric backing to apply the Finesse-it™ Finishing Material or Finesse-it™ Final Finish. These are ideal for buffing automotive OEM, marine, and aerospace coatings. These pads are trimmed to specified pile height, making ideal for compounding and polishing in hard to access areas.
- Provides soft, smooth surface for applying 3M™ Finesse-it™ finishing products
- Wool fibers distribute material evenly and consistently
- Pre-washed reduces loose fibers for clean operation
- 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

What is the 3M™ Finesse-it™ Low Lint Knit II Buffing Pad used for?
The 3M™ Finesse-it™ Low Lint Knit II Buffing Pad is a tool designed to achieve excellent finishes on painted surfaces during polishing or buffing.
How does the low lint feature of this buffing pad work?
The low lint design of our pads offers improved performance and reduced cleanup time due to their ability to stay cleaner, longer. They have special attributes that help prevent unwanted fibers and particles from sticking on painted surfaces.
Is this buffing pad suitable for hand use only or can it be used with machines too?
This buffing pad is designed primarily for machine use in automotive refinishing applications but can also work well when using hand methods over larger surface areas where there are minimal needs.
: Are these sold in bulk packs or individual packaging?
A : These products are packed individually. However, they come as a set of ten pieces per inner package (50 per case).
These wool buffing pads are generally more aggressive and easier to control than foam pads. They have a greater available cutting surface area due to the presence of thousands of fibers. These fibers 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. Because of their cutting ability, wool pads are effective for removing sanding scratches and perform best on rotary type buffing tools. 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.
3M™ Finesse-it™ products are specially engineered abrasives, compounds, polishes, and buffing pads to be used on OEM and baked refinish paints to remove defects, sand scratches, or swirl marks on a variety of painted surfaces. 3M™ Finesse-it™ products are an integral part of a 3M-recommended buffing system for repairing surface defects to clear coats, lacquered wood, solid surfaces, gelcoat, powder coat, industrial paint, acrylic, and glass.
