We manufacture 3M™ Finesse-it™ Knit II Buffing Pads with wool fibers knit into a polyester fabric backing to apply the Finesse-it™ Finishing Material or Finesse-it™ Final Finish. Our pads are ideal for buffing automotive OEM, marine, and aerospace coatings. These pads are trimmed to specified pile height, making ideal for compounding and polishing in hard to access areas.

We pre-wash Finesse-it™ Knit II Buffing Pads to minimize lint discharge. Our pads conform well on irregular surfaces and will remove finishing abrasive sand scratches, oxidation, paint surface defects. Finish results are dependent on specific polish used, coating type and the tool used. These pads are designed with our 3M™ Hookit™ attachment system for quick pad mounting and removal and to hold each pad securely in place during use. Hookit™ buffing pads quickly and firmly attach 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. Our line of wool buffing pads are generally more aggressive and easier to control than foam pads. They have a greater available cutting surface area due to the presence of thousands of fibers. These fibers provide faster cutting action than foam pads, Wool fibers hold the polish to provide even distribution of material and require less pressure from the operator. The nap helps wool pads glide and conform to contours, making them easier to control than foam pads. Because of their cutting ability, wool pads are effective for removing sanding scratches and perform best on rotary type buffing tools. Depending on the polish type, individual technique, composition of the coating, and the tool used, finishing with a wool pad may require a follow-up step with a foam pad and polish to remove micro-marring or swirl marks. Our line of 3M™ Finesse-it™ products are specially engineered abrasives, compounds, polishes, and buffing pads to be used on OEM and baked refinish paints to remove defects, sand scratches, or swirl marks on a variety of painted surfaces. 3M™ Finesse-it™ products are an integral part of our recommended buffing system for repairing surface defects to clear coats, lacquered wood, solid surfaces, gelcoat, powder coat, industrial paint, acrylic, and glass.
