One Pad, One System, No More Compounding
Designed specifically for use with the 3M™ Perfect-It™ 1-Step Paint Finishing System, our 3M™ Perfect-It™ 1-Step Foam Finishing Pad compounds and polishes in one step – you can achieve a high-gloss finish without the time and expense of traditional compounding. The pad and our 3M™ Perfect-It™ 1-Step Finishing Material deliver the cut of a compound with the handling of a polish, developed for use with 3M™ Trizact™ 3000 and 8000 abrasives. The result is faster final paint finishing without additional time, compounds or pads. Single-sided pads are available with Hookit™ hook-and-loop attachment for quick change-outs. Choose from 8”, 6” and 4” pad diameters for a wide range of paint finishing requirements.

The 3M™ Perfect-It™ 1-Step System
The 3M™ Perfect-It™ 1-Step Foam Finishing Pad is an integral part of a complete system that eliminates compounding in collision repair paint finishing. The system includes:

  • 3M™ Trizact™ Foam Abrasive Disc (3000 grade). This foam disc features long lasting, even-wearing abrasive for removing 1500 or 2000 3000 grade sand scratches on painted surfaces.
  • 3M™ Trizact™ Foam Abrasive Disc (8000 grade). This new abrasive helps bridge the gap between the process and the abrasives for scratch refinement and polish.
  • 3M™ Perfect-It™ 1-Step Finishing Material. The material is developed specifically for use with this system.
  • 3M™ Perfect-It™ 1-Step Foam Finishing Pad. This buffing pad combines the performance of the 3M™ Perfect-It™ Foam Compounding Pad (white) and the 3M™ Perfect-It™ Ultrafine Foam Polishing Pad (blue). It is available in 6” and 8” pads with Quick Connect attachment and Hookit™ attachment in 6”, 8” and 4” pads.

About Quick Connect Attachment
Quick Connect pads feature a center plate for added durability, and work with the 3M™ Quick Connect Adaptor PN 05752 for attachment to rotary and random orbital tools. The metal adapter has 5/8” threads, making it easy to quickly lock the pad to a large range of standard rotary polishers. This method also perfectly centers the pad every time for fewer fly-offs. You can detach them just as quickly, which makes changing pads easy and fast and saves time and money. For Festool polishers, use 3M™ Quick Connect Adaptor PN 33271 with 14 mm threads.

Our Hookit™ Attachment System
The Hookit™ attachment system has a hook-and-loop feature which makes attachment, removal, and re-attachment clean and easy. It also facilitates use and re-use of the Perfect-It™ pad for maximum product life. Hookit™ pads have a brushed nylon loop backing of the type most commonly used in everyday hook-and-loop applications. The 3M™ Perfect-It™ Foam Finishing Pad features hooks which grip the brushed nylon loop backing of your Hookit™ backup pad. It’s simple: just attach the pad and start  polishing. The pad removes just as cleanly and easily. The Hookit™ system is designed for work spaces and applications where adhesive backed abrasives may become contaminated by dust, dirt or debris.

A Proven Portfolio in Paint Finishing
The 3M™ Perfect-It™ 1-Step system is just the latest in a long line of Perfect-It™ paint finishing solutions for better efficiency and lower process times, both during use and through creating defect-free surfaces.  It includes 3M™ Perfect-It™ EX Machine Polish and 3M™ Perfect-It™ EX Ultrafine Machine Polish – both excellent for showroom-grade finishes on dark-colored or other uniquely challenging vehicle surfaces.
