3M™ foam compounding pad is a great, fast cutting foam pad designed for refining and removing sanding scratches and swirls. The convolute foam face conforms to curves and body lines to reduce chatter for improved finishes. It also holds compound to help reduce slinging and the hook and loop attachment makes for fast, easy attachment to rotary polishers. Our 3M™ foam compounding pad features a convolute face that absorbs compound to limit slinging and provide more contact with the surface for maximum efficiency. This single sided foam compounding pad is excellent for use with any 3M™ Perfect-It™ rubbing compounds. 3M™ foam compounding pad works for a variety of specific applications, including working with cured, hard or medium finish paint, scratch removal and refining P1200 or finer sand scratches. We developed these foam pads to keep pace with evolving paint and clear coat technologies. Foam pads are generally less aggressive and produce a finer finish than wool pads, ideal for the critical compounding stages of paint refinishing. The Hookit™ attachment system has a hook and loop feature which makes disc attachment, removal and reattachment of single sided 3M™ foam compounding pad clean, easy and very fast for maximized shop time. It also facilitates use and reuse of the disc for maximum product life. Hookit™ discs have a brushed nylon loop backing of the type most commonly used in everyday hook and loop applications. A range of Hookit™ pads such as the 3M™ foam compounding pad features hooks which grip the brushed nylon loop backing. It's simple - just attach the disc and start sanding. The disc removes just as cleanly and easily. The Hookit™ system is designed for work spaces and applications where adhesive backed abrasives may become contaminated by dust, dirt or debris. We recommend the 3M™ Hookit™ 7 in backup pad or 3M™ Perfect-It™ 7 in backup pad, which is part of the Hookit™ system. We suggest using this foam pad in conjunction with Perfect-It™ rubbing compound, which is part of our line of Perfect-It™ products. It is a fast cutting compound that helps remove sand scratches and leave a fine finish on automotive paints. Together, the foam pad and compound are an integral part of our 3M™ Perfect-It™ paint finishing system - developed for when the finest finish is required for every level of clear coat and paint repair. Our system uses a progressive series of abrasives, buffing and compounding pads and proprietary polishes across four stages of repair to produce show room grade finishes with deep color and rich gloss.
