The 3M™ Finesse-it™ Buffing Pad - Green Foam is designed to remove abrasive sand scratches that were created to remove small defects in automotive clear coats. This buffing pad can also be used in the 3M™ Finesse-it™ Trizact™ Paint Repair System for AOEM paint and clear coats when the finest finish is required. The waffle face of the pad minimizes heat buildup during buffing and helps eliminate swirl marks. The flat face increases contact area, improving cut, and provides smooth feedback when running. The pad is manufactured with a hook and loop attachment system for quick pad attachment and removal and to hold the pad securely in place during use. These buffing pads can be conveniently and firmly attached to a hook-and-loop backup disc pad (sold separately) on rotary or random orbital tools, 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 combination of coating type, polish, and tools used.Heat Resistant
3M has developed a full 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 speed to remove fine scratches, swirl marks, and surface marring. Foam pads range in abrasive levels determined by their 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. Foam buffing pads are used in conjunction with polishes and are recommended for use with random orbital tools.Finesse-it™ Buffing System
