From material removal to delicate polishing, silicon carbide will take your finishing work to new levels of success.

This durable and long-wearing abrasive is ideal for rough sanding surfaces in preparation of new coatings of finish. Featuring waterproof backing and coming in various grit sizes.

Stable Abrasive Properties

Silicon carbide, an alloy composed of silicon and carbon, is widely recognized for its incredible hardness. As such, it makes an ideal material for long-wearing abrasives such as sandpaper. When employed to surface finish and shape materials more precisely.

Contrary to aluminum oxide abrasives, silicon carbide can withstand rigorous use while still retaining its quality over time. This ensures consistent performance across various applications with precise results that meet expectations, without frequent grit size changes – saving cost while increasing productivity.

Silicon carbide stands out among synthetic materials with its superior chemical stability, high thermal conductivity, low thermal expansion coefficient, and outstanding wear resistance – qualities which make it suitable for many applications, from abrasives such as sandpaper to high hardness/tensile strength synthetic materials that resist oxidation. Silicon carbide offers these attributes in abundance!

Silicon carbide abrasive paper production is straightforward and economical, with production starting by reacting and pyrolyzing vaporized polysiloxanes in a hot chamber to form silicon carbide particles which are then laminated onto strong paper backing to form a product suitable for dry and wet-sanding processes, giving users flexibility in choosing which option best meets their needs.

Wet-sanding helps reduce airborne dust levels, making it an especially helpful technique for those living with respiratory conditions. In addition, using water as a lubricant ensures the paper stays cool and prevents heat damage to workpieces; its waterproof backing also makes it suitable for humid environments.

This versatile abrasive can also be used for dry sanding and deburring metals, glass, stone and cork surfaces. Course grits are great for getting rid of rust or prepping metal surfaces for painting/refinishing while finer grits level out imperfections in metal surfaces. Furthermore, its use works especially well in modern lapidary to sand marble and stone sculptures – indeed one of its primary applications!

Minimal Grit Deterioration

This 3M Wet Sandpaper Sheet is constructed with sharp, waterproof silicon carbide mineral for precise cutting action and its resin bond resists thermal and chemical deterioration for extended lifespan. Additionally, its conformability with irregular surfaces and contours make this an excellent choice for roughing through to final smoothing applications; further adding to its versatility. Furthermore, it can be used with either hand sanding tools or power tools for maximum versatility.

Consistent grit-to-grit performance allows you to achieve the desired finish in each sanding step, saving time and effort. This feature makes it particularly suitable for use in metallography where repeatability is critical to success, as well as using coarser grits for stock removal followed by finer ones for polishing.

Consistency of the abrasive material also reduces waste and saves you money, especially when compared with aluminum oxide abrasives that wear out more rapidly and need frequent replacement.

As such, this product is an ideal option for environmentally conscious companies and consumers looking to reduce their carbon footprint without compromising the quality of sanding needed for their project. Ideal for use on wood, metal, composite materials and more this wet sandpaper provides optimal sanding results across a range of projects.

Silicon carbide abrasives differ significantly from aluminum oxide in that they feature harder and more resilient grains that can withstand greater wear-and-tear, making it the go-to abrasive for harder materials and rougher surfaces, as well as applications requiring high precision.

Silicon carbide sandpaper is an invaluable partner when it comes to elevating your craftsmanship to the next level, whether that means refurbishing an antique wooden table, polishing off metal projects, or priming furniture for new coats of paint. Thanks to its versatility, exceptional performance, and superior finishing capabilities, silicon carbide sandpaper has quickly become the go-to abrasive among professionals as well as DIY enthusiasts.

Versatile Applications

Silicon carbide has many uses due to its hardness, abrasive properties and compatibility with various metals. It’s particularly popular for use in metallography where samples need to be prepared for microscopic analysis; and due to its heat tolerance and low thermal expansion properties it makes an excellent material choice for friction generating processes like abrasion.

Silicon carbide sandpaper’s powerful abrasive ability makes it the go-to sandpaper for numerous tasks that require precise material removal, whether that means coarsely shaping surfaces or finely smoothing them for staining and painting. DIY enthusiasts and professional carpenters alike trust its consistent, expected results across industries.

Automotive bodywork and restoration uses this sandpaper as the premier surface preparation solution, ensuring every painted detail is perfectly smooth before the next coat. However, its versatility also extends into woodworking – providing a perfect smooth canvas ready for staining or painting.

3M Wetordry PSA Paper Disc 401Q features extra fast cutting silicon carbide on a C-weight paper backing that is waterproof and durable, ideal for wet or dry sanding different substrates such as paint, primer, gel coat and metal. Additionally its resin bonding holds up well when used wet while simultaneously reducing airborne dust emissions.

Ideal for use when wet sanding fiberglass and gel coat, the addition of water lubricates the abrasive, making cutting through layers of paint and gel easier than ever. Plus, its closed-coat construction and sharp silicon carbide mineral ensure a precise cut without blunting your sandpaper’s edge.

silicon carbide’s remarkable abrasive qualities also make it suitable for high-speed grinding operations requiring high heat resistance, with its resistance to thermal degradation even under demanding environments ensuring consistent performance throughout its lifespan. As such, silicon carbide sandpaper stands out amongst its competition, becoming a go-to choice among professionals seeking precision in all of their work. Thanks to its predictable performance characteristics it ensures projects are completed on time, within budget, and deliver desired results.

Achieve a Perfect Finish

Silicon carbide paper stands out from its competition with its reliable abrasive properties and minimal grit deterioration, making it an effective tool for crafting excellence. Perfect for various tasks including prepping wood surfaces, smoothing metal, leveling imperfections and leveling defects; hand or power tools can be used, accommodating different grit sizes to suit different applications – this versatility makes silicon carbide paper a steadfast choice among professionals as well as DIY enthusiasts who require consistent outcomes on all their projects.

This type of sandpaper is produced by covering paper or cloth backings with layers of sharp, hard and durable abrasive mineral grains bonded together using an adhesive (usually resin-based). Once dry, this abrasive material can then be cut into sheets to produce products like sandpaper. Usually it’s used for smoothing surfaces while other times it may also remove burrs, weld splatter or debris from surfaces.

Black silicon carbide (Carborundum) stands out from aluminum oxide by having an extremely high melting point and tough surface, enabling it to be ground down multiple times before needing replacing, making it more economical than alternative abrasives like brown fused alumina or green silica. Made either naturally or synthetically from natural or synthetic sources and available in various shapes and sizes ranging from blocks, heavy wedges, flake-like shards etc.

Rapid Stock Removal

Silicon carbide abrasive paper offers more efficient material removal and smooth finish attainment compared to traditional sandpaper, making it an attractive alternative for woodwork and metalwork projects.

Silicon carbide abrasive papers are used extensively in metallography to prepare metallic samples for microscopic analysis. Scientists often choose these papers due to their hardness, abrasive properties, consistency, grit range compatibility with various metals as well as compatibility with microstructure.
