Product Description:

The 3M™ Finesse-it™ Knit Buffing Pad 85078 is a wool pad, with fibers knit into a polyester fabric backing, designed to apply the Finesse-it™ Finishing Material or Finesse-it™ Final Finish. This pad is ideal for buffing automotive OEM, marine, and aerospace coatings. The pad has a 15/16” trim length, wool fiber surface, ideal for compounding and polishing in hard to access areas. The pad removes finishing abrasive sand scratches, oxidation, other paint surface defects, and conforms well to irregular surfaces. Finish results are dependent on specific polish used, coating type, and the tool used. This pad is manufactured with the 3M™ Hookit™ attachment system for quick pad mounting and removal and to hold the pad securely in place during use. Hookit™ buffing pads conveniently 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.

Wool buffing pads are generally more aggressive and easier to control than foam pads. They have a greater available cutting surface area due to the presence of thousands of fibers. These fibers provide faster cutting action than foam pads, Wool fibers hold the polish to provide even distribution of material and require less pressure from the operator. The nap helps wool pads glide and conform to contours, making them easier to control than foam pads. Because of their cutting ability, wool pads are effective for removing sanding scratches and perform best on rotary type buffing tools. Depending on the polish type, individual technique, composition of the coating, and the tool used, finishing with a wool pad may require a follow-up step with a foam pad and polish to remove micro-marring or swirl marks.
