While the name doesn’t necessarily roll of the tongue, the product is impressive nonetheless. Instead of a rigid paper backing, these sheets have a super flexible silicone-like backing. This added flexibility creates a ton of advantages. These sheets can get in tight spots like fancy trim profiles, and they can hug rounded profiles like wood spindles. They always bounce back to their original form, so no more permanent creases which can scratch flat surfaces. These sheets can even be used wet. And in addition to all that awesomeness, they last up to 15X longer!
This really is an amazing product. I can’t think of a project that I would choose paper-backed sand paper over this. Sheets are available in 100, 150, 220, and 320-grit. You can buy 3M Pro Grade Precision Ultra Flexible Sanding Sheets at home centers. They cost about double what paper-backed costs, but they’re worth every penny.
