Screw-On For Gelcoat Compounding and Finishing
For those who prefer a two-sided pad, this is 3M's recommended pad for gelcoat compounding and finishing.
This pad is our best selling double-sided pad.
The 05703 is a 100% wool pad with a firm, built-in backing pad for greater cutting power.
This pad has soft, loosely twisted yarn construction providing fast cutting while leaving a softer, finer finish.
For proven, outstanding results, we suggest you use this compounding pad with 3M Imperial Compound & Finishing Material. See below.
On most gelcoat surfaces this could be the only pad you need to attain a full gloss finish
On darker gelcoat colors where it's easier to see any remaining swirl marks, if additional polishing steps are required, we recommend using 3M's #05705 double sided polishing pad
Fits all standard (5/8") slow speed polishers
To keep the back side of the pad from skinniing your knuckles, use the #5710 Superbuff stand-off adapter which extends the buffer shaft length, while its shoulder prevents the pad from screwing too far down onto the shaft and sticking out through the pad. See Related Products, below
