Abrasive sheets, or sandpaper, is a type of coated abrasive that consists of sheets of paper or cloth with an abrasive material glued to the face. Despite the name, sandpaper isn’t manufactured anymore with sand or glass but with other types of abrasives, such as aluminum oxide grain, silicon carbide grain, garnet grain and emery grain. Sandpaper is available in a wide range of grit sizes and used to remove unwanted material from surfaces, either to make it smoother, rougher, or to remove a layer of material (such as paint or rust). Sandpaper sheets can be used manually or with a sanding machine, and used in many industries including the automotive, construction, manufacturing and general purpose. There are many types of sandpaper sheets including drywall sheets, pre-cut floor sanding sheets, long board paper sheets and they common 9 x 11 sandpaper sheets.
