Quality pad yields great results

Use this pad with 3M compounds to refine P1200 or finer sanding scratches. Requires 3M 05752 (Model 15654536) Quick Connect Adapter, sold separately. The 3M Quick Connect system enables super quick pad changes and perfectly centers the pad each time.

Pad face patterns are designed into the foam to hold more compound, as well as provide more contact with the surface for maximum efficiency. Works with 3M™ Quick Connect and Hookit™ attachment systems to save time and preserve pad life.

Another Perfect-It™ Top Performer

Foam pads are ideal for the critical compounding stages of paint refinishing and are generally less aggressive and produce a finer finish than wool pads. They can normally operate at higher RPMs and use a combination of cutting and heat buildup to slightly melt the surface coating and remove fine scratches and swirl marks. 3M™ Perfect-It™ Foam Compounding Pads are best used in conjunction with Perfect-It™ Rubbing Compound and can be quickly attached to rotary and random orbital tools.
