3M Abrasives for Woodworking


216u2

3M 216U FRE-CUT™ GOLD is the longest-lasting, best cutting sandpaper we’ve used. It’s about the only dry sandpaper we’ve found that sands dewaxed shellac and other hard-to-sand finishes without corning immediately.  It’s graded to tighter particle size deviation tolerances and is made with modified stearates that don’t cause problems with in-between sanding of water-based . And it leaves no residue which results in a chalky look or causes problems with finishes. Well worth the price and is one of the most often used sandpapers in our shop.

NOTE – 216u is “P” graded. To see how this grading system compares to conventional CAMI graded paper click
