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

Quality 3M product. I usually go to 3000 grit, then to rubbing compound, not anymore, 4000, to 8000 3M micron paper with water and dishsoap does the trick. Polish/buff and I'm happy

These make polishing Frets a breeze. Excellent for finish repair jobs. I am going to try and post a picture of a Birdseye Maple Fret Board thatÆs frets were polished and a divot in the board repaired with these. A must have.

Much faster than other polishing papers, you can use them wet or dry for just about anything. Great stuff.

Perfect small area polishers

Great on fixing dings but you have to start with course and work up to fine, without polishing media (do not skip steps). I cut smaller strips and find this is quite handy for smaller areas and neck work.

Another alrounder especially good for small irregular shapes, nuts, frets, finish touch ups, etc.
