What makes waterproof sandpaper waterproof?

As the name suggests, waterproof abrasive paper has the characteristic of being waterproof. So where does this waterproof performance come from?

Waterproof sandpaper gets its name because it can be used for wet sanding, meaning it can be soaked in water or used with water during the sanding process. It is made using waterproof latex paper or cowhide paper that has undergone waterproof treatment as the substrate, with various resins as binding agents. Aluminium oxide or silicon carbide and other abrasives are firmly attached to the substrate to form a coated abrasive.

Characteristics of waterproof sandpaper

  • Wet sanding with this abrasive paper has no harmful dust, nor does it cause dust explosions.

  • The polishing quality is higher than that of ordinary dry sandpaper. When used with water, the surface of the sandpaper is not easily clogged, and the lifespan of the abrasive paper is long.

  • Waterproof abrasive paper has a wide range of grit sizes, from P60 to P3000, while the average grit size of dry sandpaper is around P1000. It is especially suitable for high precision polishing with fine grit sizes.

  • Fine waterproof abrasive paper is more cost-effective than other precision grinding materials. It is relatively cheap, and can be used for both wet and dry sanding, with a wide range of applications.

The main reason for the waterproof properties of waterproof sandpaper is due to the use of waterproof latex or cowhide paper as the substrate. We now have a clear understanding of waterproof sandpaper.

How to choose a manufacturer of water sandpaper

There are many manufacturers of water sandpaper. To avoid fake and inferior sandpaper, it is essential to select a professional and legitimate manufacturer of sandpaper to ensure that the products we purchase are not substandard, and have quality assurance. When choosing a sandpaper manufacturer, it is important to pay attention to the following:

  • Check the supply capacity of the water sandpaper manufacturer. If the abrasive supply capacity is sufficient, it indicates that the strength of the manufacturer is very good.

  • Check the production process and technology of the manufacturer to ensure that they are of high quality. Abrasives produced using excellent production technology will have better product quality.

  • Check the price of the water sandpaper as well as after-sales service. A reputable manufacturer will not charge unreasonable prices, and their after-sales service will be very considerate.
