Remove 1200 grit sanding scratches with 3M Perfect-It 3000 Rubbing Compound. Designed specifically for new hard clear coats, 3M Perfect-It 3000 Rubbing Compound cuts quickly and leaves a fine finish that is easily polished to a high gloss. This is the third step in the 3M Perfect-It Paint Finishing System.
3M Perfect-It 3000 Rubbing Compound is a new breed of compound. In the past, you could gauge the cutting speed of a compound by rubbing it between your thumb and finger. If the compound felt gritty, it was a fast-cutting compound. The problem with these compounds is that they leave deep compounding swirls that are more difficult and time-consuming to remove.
3M Perfect-It 3000 Rubbing Compound has changed the rules. This compound works with a combination of mineral and chemical technology to quickly remove sanding scratches, leaving only shallow swirl marks. 3M Perfect-It 3000 Rubbing Compound is not gritty or coarse. It leaves a fine finish that polishes out easily with the next step, 3M Perfect-It 3000 Machine Polish.
3M Perfect-It 3000 Rubbing Compound is great for fresh paint whereas 3M Perfect-It 3000 Extra Cut Compound is best for cured paint.
3M Perfect-It 3000 Rubbing Compound removes P1200 and finer sanding scratches, even from hard, low-VOC paints. These scratch-resistant paint finishes are more resistant to paint correction but 3M's unique combination of mineral and chemical technology levels imperfections without the need for harsh abrasives. With just a few passes with 3M Machine Polish, you'll be able to restore a showroom gloss to your vehicle.
Get faster, smoother results with 3M Perfect-It 3000 Rubbing Compound, 3M's most effective compound ever for hard, low-voc paint finishes.
Use 3M Perfect-It 3000 Rubbing Compound with a foam or wool compounding pad, such as the Lake Country CCS Yellow Foam Pad or the 8.5 inch DuroWool Cutting Pad. 3M offers these tips to select a pad: wool runs cooler and cuts faster, foam does not lint and leaves a finer finish. 3M Perfect-It 3000 Rubbing Compound is recommended for use with a rotary polisher. Compound at medium pressure from 1200-2000 rpm with overlapping passes. When the sanding scratches have been removed, reduce pressure on the polisher. Use a Cobra Microfiber Towel to remove the residue from the paint. Follow up with 3M Perfect-It Machine Polish.
