3M™ Perfect-It™ Rubbing Compound combines strength and finesse, removing fine scratches and defects. We engineered this automotive paint rubbing compound for use with newer clear coats that are used in shops today. The innovative combination of mineral and chemical technology cuts the fastest, minimizing pad heating. It maximizes productivity while still leaving the finest finish, minimizing machine polishing in the next step. It leaves such a fine finish it is recommended as a rubbing compound on headlights.
