Recommendations for use

Dry Applications:

For dry applications the Terra series is recommended. Terra Series discs are made with high quality aluminum oxide, resin bonded, backed by a strong latex coated paper. Includes special clog resistant and flex technology. Comes in Velcro or Sticky back and P80-P600 grit.


Wet or Dry Applications:

If lubricants such as water is required in the sanding process, we recommend using the Chroma series for the grits where lubricant will be used. Chroma Series film discs are made with high quality aluminum oxide, resin bonded, backed by a strong polyester film and are best used for high performance wet or dry applications. These discs cut aggressively and precisely to leave a uniform finish. Includes special clog resistant and flex technology. Comes in Velcro or Sticky back and P40-P2000 grit.
