Tools, Blocks and Accessories for Collision Repair

Success You Can Hold in Your Hand.

  • Even when you choose the finest abrasive products in collision repair, your success comes down to the how well you use them. This selection of 3M tools and accessories is a great example of using them well. You’ll find power tools that pack the performance of our heavy metalworking tools into units sized and powered for body repair. 3M disc backup pads, holders, hand pads, sanding blocks, file shoes and more boost effective sanding wet or dry, and help you fully integrate the speed and efficiency of our Hookit™, Stikit™ and Roloc™ attachment. Each solution has been developed to deliver success, right where it belongs – in your hands.


  • These tools for effective cutting, grinding and sanding are sized specifically for body repair. Each is consistently lightweight, and all capture a range of 3M designs – a slightly slanted head that’s easier on the wrists, precision-balanced motors for reduced vibration, a rotatable housing for versatility in tight spaces – to make your work faster, more efficient and more comfortable.

  • 3M knows the reason why you sand by hand. These sanding blocks, file shoes, interface pads and more have been developed specifically for applying abrasives consistently and intuitively, even in hard-to-reach spaces. Many are available with hook-and-loop backing for 3M™ Hookit™ abrasives, or to accept adhesive-backed Stikit™ abrasives that press on quickly and remove without residue.

  • Encompassing some of our most well-known brands in collision repair – Perfect-It™, Scotch-Brite™ and Roloc™ among them – these backup pads, interface pads, disc holders and disc pad assemblies have been developed to maximize your speed, convenience, cut and control. These accessories for power sanding are available for jobs from grinding and paint stripping to buffing and polishing.
