We manufacture this white buffing pad as our least aggressive, softest buffing pad in the 3M™ Finesse-it™ buffing pad family. This pad has a convoluted buffing surface designed to be used in conjunction with Finesse-it™ polishes, specially developed to achieve satin, semi-gloss or high gloss finishes on wood, automotive, marine, and aerospace coatings.

3M™ Finesse-it™ Foam Buffing Pads are ideal for final and extra fine finishing steps for automotive OEM clear coats and removing sand scratches or swirl marks from previous finishing steps. The foam buffing pads can also be used in the 3M™ Finesse-it™ Paint Repair System for AOEM paint and clear coats. Our pads are manufactured with the 3M™ Hookit™ attachment system for quick pad mounting and removal and to hold them securely in place during use. 3M™ Finesse-it™ Foam 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. Finish results are dependent on specific polish used, coating type, and the tool used.

We developed our line of foam pads 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 normally operate at higher RPMs than wool pads, relying on a combination of cutting and heat buildup to slightly melt the surface coating and remove fine scratches, swirl marks, and surface marring. Foam pads range in abrasive levels determined by its softness and the cell size of the holes; the larger the hole, the more aggressive the pad. "Closed cell" pads are the least aggressive type. You can use our foam buffing pads in conjunction with polishes and are suitable to use with rotary and random orbital tools.

Our line of 3M™ Finesse-it™ products are specially designed compounds and polishes to be used on OEM and baked refinish paints to remove sand scratches or 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.
