GOLDFLEX SHEETS 9″ x 11″
These premium sheets have a unique flexible backing which allows you to literally wad up the paper in a ball and it will hold its shape (see right). This feature allows you to sand intricate profiles easily. It also excels for flat surfaces and wraps easily around a cork sanding block. It’s fast cutting and long-wearing with it’s aluminum oxide grit and heavier B, C and D weight backing (most papers above 100 use an A weight paper). It’s stearated, but does not pose problems with either our General, Target and other water base finishes. Use the Goldflex for bare wood or between coat sanding to produce a very fine, consistent scratch pattern.

MIRKA ROYAL GOLD DISCS – These 5 and 6″ discs are the toughest and longest wearing disc Mirka makes. We offer these in grits from 320-1500 for dry sanding finishes. They are perfect for between the coat sanding, using either a random orbit sander or with the grip faced hand pad with strap (see below). These discs allow you to dry sand a finish when you rub it out, which is preferable to wet-sanding. If you wish, you can use the disc with a lubricant for wet-sanding.

ABRALON ABRASIVE PADS
ABRALON is the hottest product in wood finishing! It combines the best features of sandpaper and non-woven products, constructed with a abrasive fabric face, foam center and grip backing. The open weave of the abrasive fabric allows water or solvent to flow freely, resulting in both non-clogging and cooling, because the foam retains solvent. This product is silicon carbide so it works well on both wood, finishes, metal and plastic and is especially nice on contoured surface. It cleans up easily in soapy water or mineral spirits. This product was featured in Fine Woodworking #147 and #149. You can purchase individual pads or in boxes of 20. For contoured surfaces use the 6″ foam interface pad (see below).
Available in 6″ hook and loop pads. Current Pricelist
GRITS (P Designation) – Order single pads or packages of 20.

ABRANET ABRASIVE DISC – Current Pricelist
ABRANET is undoubtedly one of the most revolutionary abrasive products on the market. If your sander has a vacuum assist, you can sand absolutely dust free! The Abranet disc is a see-through mesh (see photo right) so it can be used with any multi-hole grip pad. You get improved dust extraction, elimination of pilling (corning) and a better finish all -around. This is the best product for topcoat sanding I’ve used. This product is aluminum oxide bonded to a fabric mesh (see below) so it works well on both wood, finishes, metal and plastic and is especially nice on contoured surfaces with a 5″ interface pad (see below).
