Product Overview

Extra Cushion for Precision Sanding
Used between a 3M™ Hookit™ Back-Up Pad and a 3M™ Hookit™ Abrasive Disc, the 3M™ Hookit™ Soft Interface Pad maximizes cushion and conformability during the auto body sanding process. The pad features soft yet durable 1/2" foam construction that allows technicians to maintain consistent abrasive contact when following contours and to sand closer to edges without burning through. It also reduces the vibration common when using a dual action orbital sander, increasing the clarity of the finish.

The pad contains a pattern of uniquely designed holes which equalize air flow, providing outstanding air distribution across the entire disc. This allows dust to be pulled through and away from the disc and the sanding surface, improving the work environment and prolonging disc life.

The Hookit™ Attachment System
Hook-and-loop style 3M™ Hookit™ Soft Interface Pads work as part of the Hookit™ system, which is ideal for work spaces where adhesive backed discs may become contaminated by dust, dirt, or flying debris. They are often used in applications favoring Hookit™ discs, which tend to leave finer finishes. The soft interface pad conveniently and firmly attaches between a hook-and-loop backup disc pad and an abrasive disc (sold separately) on a random orbital sander. It can be removed cleanly and easily and reused multiple times. 

Extra Support for Superior Auto Body Sanding
3M™ Hookit™ Soft Interface Pads are another way that 3M™ adds to the science of successful automotive aftermarket operations. We have carefully developed these pads to perform during the collision repair sanding process, from improved airflow across the disc to better conformability to reduced vibration. Along with the quick-change attachment system, these pads provide superior support for your most effective sanding and professional, precise results.
