Abrasives

Wet n Dry Sand paper

Silicon Carbide grain on a heavy duty water proof backing paper.  This type of abrasive is excellent at producing extremely fine finishes.  Sanding wet  using water (possibly witha small amount of detergent added) keeps the sandpaper clear (prevents clogging) and as a result stops the clogged bits damaging the surface being sanded.  Wide range of grits so that a surface can be sanded with successively finer abrasives until it can be polished.


• Also suitable for fibre glass projects whether polyester, vinylester or epoxy based.
• Paint, varnish and filler
• High-quality, highly flexible, waterproof abrasive paper with silicone carbide grain
• Especially suited to the automotive car repair sector

Sheet size is: 230mm x 280mm

Silicon Carbide is an extremely hard artificially made compound of silicon and carbon.  It shatters into extremely sharp grains which are used for cutting and grinding.  The hardness ensures long life and the ability to erode most common materials

Arizona Sand Paper

An aluminium oxide grain sandpaper.

• Very high stock removal and excellent finish.
• Long service life.
• Dust free sanding thanks to new 21-hole dust extraction technology.
• High flexibility of abrasive, also in coarser grits, ideal for manual use.
• Especially developed for automotive applications.
• Very good performance on hard fillers, primers and composite materials, thanks to special grain type.

Polyester film backing advantages:


• Extremely high load-ability of sanding material, even at the edges.
• Long service life.
• Highly aggressive.
• Large amount of material removed.
• Very homogeneous sanding.
• Excellent finish.

Aluminium oxide occurs naturally as corundum.  It is extremely hard and has many industrial uses as a much less expensive substitute for industrial diamond. (Rubies and Saphires are gem forms of corundum with specific impurities giving them their colour and properties.)
