Although 3M Extra Fine Plus was originally designed specifically for use on modern ceramic nano-particle and scratch-resistant clearcoats, it has since proven itself to be ideal for use on conventional clearcoats in situations where moderate levels of cut and maximum gloss enhancement are required. 3M Extra Fine Plus offers both enthusiasts and professional detailers a number of distinct benefits over conventional compounds. Firstly, it will restore gloss and remove moderate swirl marks and fine scratches in all paint types relatively easily without any risk of causing micromarring. Secondly, it will do this without drying out or generating a significant amount of polishing dust. Thirdly, it performs equally well whether used in conjunction with dual action or rotary machine polishers, meaning it is ideal for both home and professional use.
3M Extra Fine Plus is designed to permanently remove paint defects such as swirl marks and fine scratches from original and refinished paintwork to create a smooth, highly reflective surface in readiness for the addition of sealant or wax protection. Unlike many other light compounds, 3M Extra Fine Plus breaks down completely during use to leave a sharp high gloss finish that requires only relatively minor refinement. Gloss is maximised by burnishing surfaces to a micro-smooth, highly reflective finish using ultra-fine, precision-milled aluminium oxide particles suspended in a base of oils. Unlike many other polishes, 3M Extra Fine Plus contains no fillers, meaning that defect removal is permanent rather than temporary.
3M Extra Fine Plus should only be applied by machine. For best results using a dual action polisher, it should be applied to freshly clayed paint using a 3M 150 mm Polishing Pad. Only 3-4 pea-sized drops of product are required per 18” x 18” area, and these should be worked in thoroughly at around 4000-5000 orbits per minute (speed 4-5 on most dual action machine polishers) until only a thin film remains. This film should then be buffed off carefully using a PB Super Buffing Towel. For best results using a rotary polisher, 3M Extra Fine Compound should be applied to freshly clayed paint using a 3M 150 mm Polishing Pad. Only 1-2 pea-sized drops of product are required per 18” x 18” area, and these should be worked in thoroughly at around 1500-2000 revolutions per minute (speed 3-4 on most rotary polishers) using the zenith method until only a thin film remains. This film should then be buffed off carefully using a PB Super Buffing Towel. In all cases, the resulting finish should be further refined using 3M Ultrafina SE.
