For the highest performance at every step during auto body compounding, 3M™ Perfect-It™ Foam Compounding Pads combine features that save time and improve results – for each job, and in your entire auto body operation. Pad face patterns are designed into the foam to hold more compound and limit slinging, as well as provide more contact with the surface for maximum efficiency. Double- and single-sided constructions work with the 3M Quick Connect and Hookit™ attachment systems to save time and preserve pad life. Choose a 3-, 6- or 8-inch diameter pad for a variety of specific applications including working with cured, hard or medium finish paint, denibbing, scratch removal and refining P1200 or finer sand scratches even in confined spaces.

Another Perfect-It™ Top Performer
3M developed these foam pads as part of the Perfect-It™ Paint Finishing System to keep pace with evolving paint and clear coat technologies. Foam pads are generally less aggressive and produce a finer finish than wool pads, ideal for the critical compounding stages of paint refinishing. They can normally operate at higher RPMs, relying on a combination of cutting and heat buildup to slightly melt the surface coating and remove fine scratches and swirl marks. 3M™ Perfect-It™ Foam Compounding Pads are best used in conjunction with Perfect-It™ Rubbing Compound and are quickly attached to rotary and random orbital tools.

Quick Connect Double-Sided Pads
Double-sided 3M™ Perfect-It™ Foam Compounding Pads feature a center plate for added durability, and work with the 3M Quick Connect polisher adaptor. The metal adapter has 5/8-inch threads, making it easy for operators to quickly lock and center compounding pads to a large range of standard rotary polishers. The pads can detach them just as quickly, which makes changing pads easy and fast and saves time during the stages of the Perfect-It™ Paint Finishing System.
Single-Sided Foam Pads and the Hookit™ Attachment System
The Hookit™ hook-and-loop feature makes attachment, removal, and re-attachment of single-sided 3M™ Perfect-It™ Foam Compounding Pads clean, easy and very fast for maximized shop time. Hookit™ pads have J-shaped hooks of the type most commonly used in everyday hook-and-loop applications. Hookit™ disc back-up pads grip the brushed nylon loop backings of 3M™ Perfect-It™ Foam Compounding Pads and keep them firmly attached even during aggressive use. Yet the pads also remove very quickly, saving time during multi-step compounding jobs.

This system uses a progressive series of abrasives, buffing and compounding pads, and proprietary polishes across four stages of repair to produce show-room grade finishes with deep color and rich gloss.
