3M™ Perfect-it™ Foam Polishing Pad is a soft foam polishing pad used to polish out fine scratches created from compounding steps. The waffle face gives you greater surface contact area than flat surface pads over contoured surfaces, minimizes heat buildup during buffing and helps eliminates swirl marks. It also helps the pad hold the polish and reduce slinging.

We designed these polishing pads to be used in conjunction with our 3M™ Perfect-It™ Colour Coded System of polishes and compounds. The compounding pad removes the compounding swirl marks left by either foam or wool pads when the finest finish is required. Finish results are dependent on the combination of coating type, polish, and tools used. Our foam pads were developed to address the unique chemical composition of evolving paint and clear coat technologies. Foam pads are generally less aggressive and produce a finer finish than wool pads. They operate between 1200 and 2000 rpms to remove fine scratches, compound swirl marks, and surface marring. Foam buffing pads are used in conjunction with machine polishes and are suitable to use with rotary and random orbital tools. Our 3M™ Perfect-It™ system was created to produce show-room grade finishes with deep colour and rich gloss. Our system uses a progressive series of abrasives, compounding and buffing pads, and proprietary polishes across the stages of a repair. The stages consist of sanding, scratch refinement, compounding, machine polishing and swirl elimination if necessary on dark colours. The level of work and stages needed for paint repair depend on the severity of the paint imperfection. The 3M™ Perfect-It™ Colour Coded System provides an effective, individual solution for any level of clear coat and paint repair.
