Sanding Paper

Sanding paper or glass paper are common names used for a type of coated sanding pads that consists of sheets of paper or cloth with rubbing material stick to one face. Sandpaper is produced in variable grit sizes and is used to detach tiny amounts of material from surfaces, either to make them smoother for example, in painting and wood finishing, to detach a layer of material such as old paint, or sometimes to make the surface rough for example, as a preparation for gluing.

Detailed Description for Sanding Paper

Sandpaper or glasspaper are generic names used for a type of coated abrasive that consists of sheets of paper or cloth with abrasive material glued to one face. Despite the use of the names neither sand nor glass are now used in the manufacture of these products as they have been replaced by other abrasives.[citation needed] Sandpaper is produced in different grit sizes and is used to remove small amounts of material from surfaces, either to make them smoother (for example, in painting and wood finishing), to remove a layer of material (such as old paint), or sometimes to make the surface rougher (for example, as a preparation for gluing[citation needed]). For the sake of clarity it is common to use the name of the abrasive when describing the paper, e.g. "aluminium oxide paper", or in the case of 3M's dark-grey Wetordry™ it is called "silicon carbide" paper.


How to use Sanding Paper?

Put on your dust mask and make sure you're in a well-ventilated area before you begin sanding. Stroke the object with the sanding block,using evenly distributed pressure. Always sand with the grain of the wood. When removing paint or varnish from wood, start with coarsesandpaper, and gradually shift to finer grits.
