When it comes to paint refinishing, completing a job quickly, accurately and with the least amount of cleanup is essential. For paint professionals, 3M Automotive Aftermarket Division offers the 3M Perfect-It EX Finishing System, a family of products that provides technicians with optimal performance every time.
The 3M Perfect-It EX Machine Polish is a high-tech machine polish formula that combines the latest innovations of minerals and chemicals. The new polish quickly and effectively buffs out compound swirls while reducing the frequency of having to reapply product after it dries on the surface.
The easy clean up and high performance can reduce process time and provide the perfect finish. The additional wet time with these products allow technicians to use less material and it actually performs better when you use less polish.
Get started on the perfect finish with 3M Trizact abrasives, used in paint defect removal and refinement to help reduce compounding and buffing time. They consist of precisely shaped three-dimensional pyramids distributed uniformly over the surface of the disc. As these pyramids wear, fresh, sharp mineral is constantly exposed to the work piece, resulting in faster, more consistent cutting throughout the life of the discs.
After refinement, the 3M Perfect-It EX Finishing System features the innovative 3M Perfect-It EX Rubbing Compound as the first step, which cuts, handles and cleans up better than any rubbing compound currently available. It reduces paint finishing time and decreases cleanup time considerably.
The 3M Perfect-It EX Rubbing Compound won’t stick to panels or leave film, even under extreme conditions frequently found in repair shops. The unique compound provides faster cutting, longer working time with less sling, ease of handling and easy cleanup. It is also an excellent solution for repairing fresh paint finishes.
The final step is with 3M Perfect-It EX Ultrafine Machine Polish, which combine innovative technology and proprietary ingredients to permanently remove fine swirl marks.
