The 3M™ Nib Removal Sander was designed to help operators remove stubborn imperfections and dust nibs in their finished parts, primarily painted/clear coated items.
Ergonomically Designed for Operator Comfort
3M™ Nib Sanders are pneumatically powered and attach to air hoses. Designed with operator comfort in mind, these lightweight hand sanders are easy to hold and intended to help reduce operator fatigue. The easy grip sanders fit in the palm of your hand and allow you to keep the proper angle for a finer finish.
Tips for Optimal Use
The small, 1 1/4" diameter head size on the 3M™ Nib Removal Sander helps operators see the exact point to sand, producing a smaller area to buff out than conventional tools. Additionally, the 4 position regulator dial allows for precise speed control for those critical parts with hard to sand areas. For effective nib sanding, we recommend using water as a lubricant during the sanding process. Be sure to spray the abrasive disc, such as 3M™ Trizact ™ Finesse it ™ 1 1 ⁄4" discs, (sold separately) before and after sanding each spot to keep the disc clean and help extend disc life. Sand in a small, circular motion with the pad flat against the surface and keep the sanded area as small as possible. Use a light feathering technique to blend the repair area into the original surface and avoid over sanding.
