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

3M Flexible Polishing Papers

Verified Buyer


I've been using these papers since they came out and find them to be the best
for fine finishing.

"Great for Pre Buffing"

By

Verified Buyer


I didn't know these even existed, they work great for scratches and rough spots and don't leave that one scratch that regular sand paper does so you have to work on that scratch when the other scratches are removed.

Beautiful abrasives

By

Verified Buyer


I used these day I recieved them and was immediately sold- really nice to use, especially on areas likes slotted headstock ramps where even the best quality paper isn't pliable enough. These fold around your finger like tissue paper, but are actually very strong with the backing they have.

Used on frets

By

Verified Buyer


I used 2 grades to polish my frets. Much easier than all the other sloppy methods.

Best product on the site!

By

Verified Buyer


I've been ordering from StewMac for a few years now and if I had to pick a standout favorite item, my mind immediately goes to these polishing papers. Incredible product with fantastic results. I don't know how shop techs were able to buff so well before these were available.

used with aluminum blocks

I bought these to use as a sharpening stone to sharpen my Kramer Kitchen Knives. Worked great but a bit more fragile than I was expecting.
