Single-Sided Foam Pads and Our Hookit™ Attachment System
The Hookit™ attachment system has a hook-and-loop feature which makes disc attachment, removal, and re-attachment of single-sided 3M™ Foam Compounding Pad clean, easy and very fast for maximized shop time. It also facilitates use and re-use 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 7-inch 3M™ Hookit™ backup pad or 7-inch 3M™ Perfect It™ Back-Up Pad
, which is part of the Hookit™ system.
Partner Foam Pad with a Compound
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.
