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 8.5" x 11" (215.9mm 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

We tried these papers wet and dry, polishing frets, fingerboard and a nut and they were spectacular. They are tough and flexible for crevices and curves, and left the neck with a buttery feel.

These cloth like abrasive papers are awesome. After many coats of spray can finish can leave an orange peal appearance, just use the green color paper after 4 days of drying and level your finish then finish spraying a coat or two. After 4 days do this again then let dry for at least a weak or longer then go through the set of color coded abrasive papers and start buffing with then at white with compound from color tone up to scratch remover and you will see the greatness of your professional job.

This works great for jewelry making.

Great for fret polishing, and even finishing.

If they are good enough for Dan Erlewine, they are good enough for me. Try these, they give a whole new meaning to polishing frets. You will literally see yourself in your frets when you are done. The different grits give you many options, and you can cut off only what you need to use. Great for removing scratches and blemishes too, before polishing. Expect only the best from StewMac.

Good stuff.

Should be easier to use than the foam pads.
The white 8000 grit is so fine, you can't tell which side is the abrasive.

Exceptional quality product

By

Verified Buyer


I was struggling with finding abrasives that had consistent quality and easy-to-use. The first use was to polish a poly surface on my first electric guitar build. I also make Sterling Silver jewelry and the thinner sheets make short work of polishing out fine scratches. I went through my first order and just reordered another round.

My hobby is restoring old motorcycles, and I wanted to try these abrasives for plating prep. Might also work on the frets of my New York Martin guitar.
