Whether it's simple de-nibbing or a more serious defect, 3M offers a wide range of rectification products designed to help paintshops achieve a fantastic finish quickly and efficiently.
With a colour coded system of compounds and polishes designed to complement each other, virtually all paint defect rectification work can be undertaken with confidence and ease.
3M™ Trizact™ Abrasives are used in car paint defect removal and refinement, helping to reduce compounding and buffing time.
They consist of precisely-shaped three-dimensional pyramids, distributed uniformly over the surface of the disc.
As these pyramids wear down, fresh, sharp mineral is constantly exposed, resulting in faster, more consistent cutting throughout the life of the abrasives – ideal for bodyshop applications.
3M's unique paint rectification processes and products can help you achieve the desired result for your customers.
Whether you have to remove surface defects or just want to achieve the perfect finish - our easy to follow guide on colour coded compounding processes can help you achieve great results in just a few steps.
