The Science Behind the Magic of Paint Finishing

  • Your average customer may not know about the particulars of rubbing compounds, polishes, pads or abrasives in your shop. But when the finished vehicle rolls out, they’ll know that you’ve worked some kind of magic. 3M has put decades of knowledge into our range of paint finishing products, including our proven Trizact™ and Perfect-It™ brands, to eliminate defects, remove swirls and help you achieve those shining moments for each vehicle and every vehicle owner you work with – and to do it faster, more easily and more efficiently than you ever thought possible.


3M Compounds, Polishes and Glazes Product Categories

  • These abrasive discs and foam sheets are the premiere choice for fine-grade finishing in collision repair. Trizact microreplicated mineral structures provide precise finish control, and continually expose fresh abrasive as it wears for long life.

  • Our selection of buffing compounds is formulated for removing stains, oxidation and sand scratches, creating an ideal surface for polishing with minimal sling. It features our smooth-handling Perfect-It™ EX AC Rubbing Compound for all coatings.

  • 3M polishes and finishing glazes can really bring out the shine on painted surfaces. Our 3M™ Perfect-It™ EX Machine Polish and Ultrafine Machine Polish remove compound swirl marks even on black vehicles to produce truly outstanding finishes.

  • Compounding, glazing, buffing, polishing…each of our pads is engineered to perform with our liquid compounds and polishes. Choose from foam, wool blend, low lint, ultrafine and more in a range of sizes. Many of our buffing pads feature Quick Connect attachment.

  • For any automotive surface you need to look great – chrome, metal, rubber, SRC, paint and more – 3M has a solution. Each of our detailing products is scientifically formulated for removing contaminants and bringing out the luster where it matters most.

  • 3M compounding, polishing and glazing solutions become even easier with this selection of backup pads, detailing cloths and more – plus the fully-mobile Total Automotive Sanding System for paint finishing, featuring premium sanders, polishers and organizers.


It’s Your Choice: With or Without Rubbing Compound

  • Get a deeper, glossier finish without the mess, the stress or the rework of compounding. Trizact™ 8000 removes very fine defects in painted surfaces, taking the place of compounding to increase your business efficiency. Follow with our specially formulated 3M™ Perfect-It™ 1-Step Finishing Material and purple 3M™ Perfect-It™ 1-Step Foam Finishing Pad, which deliver the cut of compounding with the fine finish of polishing.

  • For those who prefer to compound, our classic 3M™ Perfect-It™ Paint Finishing System offers products for every stage of the paint finishing process. From defect removal with 1500-grade 3M™ Trizact™ Hookit™ Foam Abrasive Discs to compounding with Perfect-It™ EX AC Rubbing Compound and swirl removal with 3M™ Perfect-It™ EX Machine Polish, our classic system will leave a refined finish on all painted surfaces.


Product Spotlight

  • 3M™ Trizact™ Abrasives have always provided faster, more effective results in the paint finishing repair process. Now we offer 3M™ Trizact™ in an 8000 grade, an incredibly fine grade that’s available to paint repair professionals for the first time ever. Trizact™ 8000 produces a unique conformed scratch pattern, and the abrasive is so fine it easily performs the work of compounding – refining and removing micro scratches to prep the painted surfaces for a deep rich finish.

  • Developed exclusively for the 1-Step system, our Finishing Material combines the refined cut of a compound with the fine finish of a polish. After sanding with 3M™ Trizact™ 8000, use 1-Step Finishing Material and Foam Finishing Pad to polish your paint surface to a rich glossy shine. The specially formulated combination of cutting and polishing action works on the ultra micro-fine scratch pattern of Trizact™ 8000 to produce our deepest, glossiest finish yet.

  • An essential final component of our 1-Step system, the new purple Foam Finishing Pad is a hybrid of our white compounding pad and blue polishing pad – combining the firmness of the white pad with the softness of the blue pad. Its dual cut-and-polish action works with 1-Step Finishing Material to leave a flawless deep gloss. Available in various sizes and with Quick Connect or 3M™ Hookit™ attachment for quick and easy pad changes, our 1-Step Foam Finishing Pad helps make compound-free paint finishing a reality.
