Our Big Idea in a Smaller Bite

For over a decade 3M™ PPS™ has helped a lot of body shops in a lot of big ways, with impressive savings of time and material. Now, we've made those benefits available to painters in any size shop. From the professional to the serious auto enthusiast, the new starter kits deliver PPS™ benefits in packs of six and twelve.



Evolution Answered.

The construction of vehicles is evolving, and 3M is keeping pace. Our new Impact Resistant Structural Adhesive allows shops to repair todays vehicles to OEM standards. IRSA delivers higher impact strength than traditional bonding adhesives, and surfaces can be weld-bonded or rivet-bonded immediately after application.


Finer Finishing Film Cuts Compounding

With the introduction of 3M™ Purple Finishing Film P2000 Grade Discs, you now can reduce your paint finishing process time. Our P2000 discs cut fast, similar to a P1500, but finishes finer, allowing for faster scratch refinement and reduced buffing time.



PPS™ Dispenser Redux

Innovation. Improved.

3M led the industry with the introduction of the first convoluted faced foam buffing and polishing pads. Now we're "changing the face" of the industry again. We've redesigned our foam pads, giving them twice as many peaks and valleys. In field tests, real-world shop workers reported our new pads handled better, cut better, slung less, chattered less.


Cubitron™ II Power – Now for More Uses

The Cubitron™ II family is growing, now delivering its better cut and longer life in:
• Cut-Off Wheels  • Roloc™ Discs  • File Belts  • Fibre Discs

These abrasives use 3M Precision-Shaped Grains — meaning they cut at least 30 percent faster than other premium abrasives. And they last at least twice as long. Shops can save money on reduced work time, and lower material costs.


Sticks Fast, Sands Easy

3M™ Quick Grip Filler works fast. It adheres well to a wide range of substrates and is ready to sand in just 15 minutes. With a tack-free finish that reduces sandpaper loading, this easy-to-shape filler creates a smooth feather edge with less chance of roll back than traditional body fillers.



Dent Filling, Done Cool

3M™ Dent Filling Compound-Cool Weather works at lower temperatures than traditional Dent Filling Compound, and features a 10-12 minutes cure time.


Not Your Typical Automotive Coating

A high-quality, two-part coating that is extremely durable and fast drying. Designed for application with a standard undercoating spray gun, or using the 3M Body Protection System.



HG14 – Accuspray™ Advantages For Fine Finishes

The next step in Accuspray™ system technology has arrived. The Accuspray™ Spray Gun Model HG14 is specifically designed for coatings that require a 1.4mm atomizing head. The HG14 provides excellent atomization, reduces gun cleaning time, and performs like a new spray gun every time that the atomizing head is replaced. The HG14 is designed to help improve both productivity and profitability.


Finish Paint Without Compounding

3M has developed a new way to get exceptional paint finishing without the mess, fuss, and frustrations of old-fashioned pads and compounds.

The new Perfect-It™ 1 finishing system combines a specially formulated finishing material with a new high-convolute foam pad to deliver one-step polishing on most vehicles.


Impressive Innovations Target Texture Troubles

Matching OEM textures on rocker panels, underbody, and other areas is difficult and annoying job in many shops. It's messy, time consuming, and prone to needing rework.

The 3M Body Protection System solves many of the frustrations in texture matching.

Job-sized packs of 3M coatings snap into our new Accuspray HGP pressure cup spray gun.

Combined, they deliver the advantages of the Accuspray system: increased control, reduced set up and clean up time, less money spent on solvent. Plus, great results. Use the fan, fluid and air pressure knobs to dial in the texture you need.

Due to state and local VOC laws, Pouch Coatings are not available in all locations, including certain restricted air quality districts in California. Please contact your state's regulatory authorities for information.


Fast Repairs – Done Easier

For the second time in less than 12 months, we're announcing additions to the Dynamic Mixing System family. There are now ten different DMS cartridges that deliver precisely-mixed product in exactly the quantities you need.

3M™ Bare-Metal Seam Sealer 58310 joins the previously released Heavy Bodied Seam Sealer 58308.

3M™ Rigid Parts Repair Adhesive 55885 is something techs have been asking for. A strong epoxy adhesive that also acts as a filler.


Feel the Difference ... Try Flexible Abrasive Hand Sheets

Introducing the Flexible Abrasive Hookit™ Sheet Trial Pack — Six grades of our extra-pliable sanding hand sheets packaged with a hand pad Hookit™ accessory for end-users who want to test these sheets before buying larger quantities.

More flexible than traditional scuffing pads and more durable than sanding sponges, our Flexible Abrasive Hookit™ Sheets excel in areas where other abrasives don't. Flexible Abrasives can be used dry or wet — by hand or on a machine.

Hand Pads Go Pro

Scotch-BriteTM 7447 PRO (maroon) and 7448 PRO (grey) were designed specifically to help customers reduce surface prep time and overall costs. The two latest innovations from Scotch-BriteTM deliver an increased cut rate, longer life and a more consistent finish.

These new hand pads come in two grades — very fine to prepare surfaces for primer, and ultra fine to prepare primer for paint. The hand pad perforation makes it easy for customers to tear in half and the user friendly box makes opening and dispensing easy.

7447 PRO and 7448 PRO join our other top-tier scuffing pad, the Durable Flex Hand Pad, a thinner version of the PRO Series.
