3M Flexible Polishing Papers, Set of all 6 grits

About This Item

'Finishing fabric' conforms to any surface. Strong micro-grit papers so flexible you can use them like cloth, wet or dry!

Because they conform to any surface shape, they're great for polishing contoured guitar finishes, frets, plastic pickguards, pearl inlays and more. The first samples we received were jealously hoarded in our shops, quickly becoming favorites for polishing nuts and saddles, and for touchups in lacquer finishes.

"Indispensable for polishing bone and pearl nuts. They leave a gorgeous luster with no dark residue in porous bone."
—Don MacRostie, Red Diamond Mandolins

Each sheet is coated on one side with micron-graded particles of aluminum oxide (1200-8000 grit) or silicon carbide (400-600 grit), on an extremely flexible non-woven .007" synthetic backing.

The pattern coating won't clog quickly. They leave no dark residue in porous bone nuts and saddles. The durable tear-resistant sheet washes easily in water.

Each sheet is a generous 9" x 11" (228.6mm x 279.4mm).

"The most versatile abrasive in my shop."
—Erick Coleman

"Lasts a long time, and so flexible you can buff shoeshine-style!"
—Dan Erlewine

I use these for lacquer finishes. The softness of these papers prevents damage and allows for smooth work. Great finish. From here buffing to a high gloss is a snap if that's where you're going.

Works good, lasts a long time

I do french polished shellac, and this works well with shellac, brushes off or washes off well. I'm amazed at how long this stuff lasts. I only use the 3 coarsest colors, the others are too fine for my work.

Great papers, they seem to last forever! I used these to get a mirror shine on a French Polished guitar. A must have finishing product.

I fabricated a brass nut- hacksaw, rough file, smooth file, 320, 400, 600 grades of sandpaper. It looked pretty nice. Then I started polishing with my set of these papers. Astounding- they should label them "shiny" through "ridiculously shiny"! I started laughing out loud as I got to the last three- I didn't think the brass could get any smoother- I was wrong. I'm impressed.

Handy little polishing paper

Verified Buyer


Because i am on a tight budget, I bought these as a cheaper way of polishing frets. It works faster than you would think to go thru all the papers. My frets shine and are so smooth with little effort. Cut them into little squares and they will last for ever.

Nice papers

By

I use these papers mostly for polishing nuts. It works fantastically and quick. Just start with the green and work up through the grits for a high polish. I wish the grit size was marked somewhere on the papers but I keep them in order of grit size which helps me keep up with them. They are a bit pricey and the lower grits wear out quickly. Go ahead and buy extra of the 400 and 600.
