Get a deeper, glossier finish without the mess, the stress or the rework of compounding. Our new system features 3M™ Trizact™ abrasive discs and sheets in an extremely fine 8000 grade – the first of its kind in paint finishing. Trizact™ 8000 removes very fine defects in painted surfaces, taking the place of compounding. 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.
Developed for increased throughput and consistent finish regardless of the job, 3M™ Cubitron™ II sanding discs, sheet rolls, sanding belts and cutting and grinding discs deliver 30% faster cutting and last twice as long as conventional ceramic abrasives. Featuring our Precision Shaped Grain (PSG) – essentially, sharp peaks that slice, not plow, through paint and metal – Cubitron II is designed for the most efficient cut and even wear. This allows it to run cooler and require less pressure vs. traditional abrasives. Excellent for lighter-weight metals like aluminum, and for reducing fatigue among your body repair technicians.
