3M Flexible Polishing Papers

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

nice product

These worked quite well...pricey but worth it. I just wish I didn't have to pay $8.95 shipping for $30 of goods.

Something I use quite often.  

By

Verified Buyer


The nice thing about these is you can cut them into strips use just what is needed. I like them for saddles and nuts. The grit is not overly aggressive, which I like. I agree with another reviewer that the color on the abrasive side could be brighter. A must have.

Nice for the right job...3.5 Stars

I bought the full set of sheets to try out all gauges. They worked good on softer and smoother finish work. When I tried them on parts that had higher abrasions seemed to tare easier than expected. Great product and...nice for the right job.
