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

Best product on the site!

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.

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.

I picked up a pack of these for a neck refinishing project and I'm really happy that I did. Nice and flexible, works like it should. I'll be using these for a lot more finishing projects around the house.

Great Product

By

Verified Buyer


This was my first time using these. I like them so much I am replacing most of my sand paper with them. They last longer than sandpaper, have a better cut, and leave virtually no sanding scratches.

Mirror polish that fret!

By

Verified Buyer


I bought this set of papers to touch up one fret that was causing buzz.
I cut small strips and a taped them to a series of pencil erasers and had great results.
The rest of the sheets will come in handy for a long time.
