How to Use
If you need to flat and finish your epoxy resin surface from a rough starting point, such as a router or sander finish, it is almost always necessary to work your way up through all of the grits, starting at 120 to remove coarse machining marks and then progressing up through each grit all the way to 1200 grit. At 1200 grit it is usual to switch to a polishing compound to finish the resin to a full gloss.
These abrasive papers can be used by hand or fitted into an orbital or dual action (DA) sander.
When sanding/flatting by hand it is recommended to use a proper sanding block or at least wrap the paper around a flat block of some description to improve the flatness of the finish, especially when working with the coarser grits like 120 and 240.
All the abrasive papers in this range can be used wet or dry. Wet-sanding can significantly help prevent the paper from clogging, getting the sanding done quicker, better and using less abrasive paper.
