Due to the sealed environment of the Dynamic Mixing Nozzle, no air infiltrates the mixing of filler and hardener giving a high-quality finish.
By taking the applicator to the job and mixing "filler-on-demand", you don't lose what you don't use - and additionally, you save working time as you can re-apply filler-on-demand from the cartridge.
There's no scooping, mixing or cleaning up and a faster smoother finish means a final coat of filler or glaze could be eliminated. 3M's enclosed system ensures that your hands stay clean as well as your work area - giving an overall cleaner result!
Degrease the surface of and around the repair area - follow the recommendations of your paint manufacturer. Well suited for this step are 3M Panel Wipes 34567.

Apply 3M Dry Guide Coat to show the filler structure and allow a controlled fast sanding. Dry Guide Coat also helps to reduce clogging and extends the live of the abrasive.
