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

Pink cloth

By

Verified Buyer


"pink" cloth paper is the best way to achieve smooth semi-gloss look on bone nuts (that can be polished further to high-gloss with polishing compound, if needed)

Also useful in touch-up jobs.

I have these in the entire set that I cut each of the six color/grit sheets into 8 smaller sheets for my purposes. So 48 total sheets.

They are great for finish work. Highly recommended.

If you want your project to look PERFECT use this. P-grade paper works great, but these take it to another level. They hold up too. I cut 3 inch squares and wet sand with my fingers until I can't feel the "roughness" of the previous grit and then go finer. If you want a finish better than most factories produce, take your time and use these ploshing papers.

Great!!...bought this item to polish bone nuts and saddles and they work great, they can tear easy so be careful but they polish up bone really well. Haven't tried them yet on frets but I imagine it will work very well for that as well.

Wow

These papers do a terrific job of polishing frets. The 8000 grit produces a shine that easily rivals that of 12000 grit micromesh and the fact that they are supple makes them ideal for polishing the sides of freshly crowned frets.

I've used them to polish the camel bone nut or my new guitar, I've built a copy of a Fender Esquire 1950. It gives a excellent finish
