Designed as a better surface finishing solution, each sponge combines quality 3M abrasives with a highly flexible foam backing -- creating a flexible way to uniformly sand curved areas such as bumpers, complex body lines, headlight openings, door handles, door jambs, and more.
These specialty-purpose sponges will reach challenging locations that ordinary sanding tools simply cannot reach. They are recommended for use in sanding both clear coat and paint.
The soft foam backing helps to evenly distribute pressure points during hand sanding, creating a smooth and consistent finish. For added versatility, they can be used for either wet or dry sanding. Offering exceptional convenience, 3M™ Performance Soft Sanding Sponges are ready to use straight from the package without any special tools, supplies or conditioning prior to use.
Use during Stage 3 and 4 as part of the 3M™ Body Repair System
