These last longer and sand faster than 3M conventional pads of comparable grit. Using proprietary constructions and manufacturing technology, 3M has created pads which maintain their inherent, high-performing cutting ability. In addition, each has been coated to resist clogging and build-up. Choose the grit level that's right for your needs:
- 60--course for moderate stripping; ideal for removing old paint, varnish, and clear-coat finishes on wood and metal.
- 100--medium for surface leveling; ideal for preparing bare wood, metal, and drywall surfaces prior to first coat of finish.
- 150--medium for surface smoothing; ideal for preparing bare wood, metal, and drywall surfaces prior to first coat of finish.
- 180--fine for sanding between coats; ideal for preparing freshly coated wood or metal surfaces prior to next coat.
Pads measure 4 1/2 in. x 5 1/2 in. x 3/16 in. Recommended for round or highly contoured surfaces.
Sponges measre 3 3/4 in. x 2 5/8 in. x 1 in. Recommended for flat or slightly contoured surfaces.
