Wipe Away Dust Particles
You may not notice dust particles before painting, but they become very visible after painting. That's why it is important to use the Bondo® Tack Cloth to remove any final dust on the car just before painting. It is recommended to wipe down the car between coats of every base coat. This tack cloth is specifically designed for automotive use and contains a tack substance that effectively removes fine particles of dust, lint, and dirt. Unlike regular cloths that simply move dust around, this cloth is designed to pick up and remove tiny particles.

Sources of Dust Contamination
There are several ways that dust and contaminants can find their way onto your vehicle during the painting process. This is why it is highly advisable to thoroughly wipe down the surface with a tack cloth. Some sources of dust contamination include unfiltered air entering the spray booth and work cloths that shed dust and lint. It is important to control these sources in order to minimize the effects of dust contamination.

An Intelligent Preventive Measure
Wiping down a primed or base-coat surface with a tack cloth is a simple and cost-effective step to prevent undesirable consequences. Once dust particles appear and roughen the surface, you are left with two options: accept a substandard paint job or sand down the surface to eliminate the roughness.

Use During the Paint and Finish Stages of the 3M™ Body Repair System
Even a small repair job can initially seem complex. That's why 3M has developed the Body Repair System, which simplifies the entire automotive body repair process by dividing it into four stages:

  • Stage 1 - Prepare: This stage involves tasks such as pulling dents, removing paint and rust, and effectively masking the area.
  • Stage 2 - Fill: In this stage, holes are patched with reinforced filler and the filler is smoothed and shaped before painting.
  • Stage 3 - Paint: This stage includes painting the area, as well as blending and smoothing primer and paint.
  • Stage 4 - Finish: The final stage is all about achieving showroom-grade results. It involves removing small defects, sealing, and polishing clear coats and other painted surfaces.

3M provides premium products such as abrasives, tapes, body fillers, and tools for each stage of the Body Repair System. This comprehensive system is designed to help you work easily, efficiently, and successfully throughout the entire body repair process.
