They’ll also offer that when it comes to the compounding stage, product sling, too-quick drying, residue and cleanup are challenges that result in increased finishing time, particularly in high-heat, high-humidity environments.

For 3M, this challenge in paint finishing led to an exceptional innovation – the new 3M™ Perfect- It™ EX Rubbing Compound, which cuts, handles and cleans up better than any rubbing compound currently available. It reduces paint finishing time and decreases clean-up time considerably.

3M Automotive Aftermarket Speeds Disassembly with 3M™ Green Corps™ File Belt

- New Process Brings Lower Cost, More Comfort for Collision Repair Body Technicians -

LAS VEGAS (November 5, 2013) – Removing spot welds from today’s high-strength steel automotive panels has just gotten easier and less expensive for body technicians, thanks to the 3M Automotive Aftermarket Division’s new 3M™ Green Corps™ File Belt and the 3M™ File Belt Tool.

The traditional method of using specialized drill bits to separate panels during disassembly is time-consuming, expensive and challenging for the technician.
