Sponge sandpaper is a special type of sandpaper that has grinding sand planted on a sponge. Compared with ordinary sandpaper, the main difference between them is that they have different abrasive carriers. In addition, the differences between sponge sandpaper and sandpaper are also reflected in the polishing objects, shapes, usage methods, and service life. Sponge sandpaper is generally considered to be more durable, softer, and has better water absorption, and the usage experience is also better. It can replace ordinary abrasive paper. Let's learn about the differences between sponge sandpaper and ordinary sandpaper.
Sponge sandpaper is a type of sandpaper that is made by planting grinding sand on a sponge. Unlike ordinary abrasive paper, it is not a paper or cloth abrasive carrier. The main differences between sponge sandpaper and ordinary abrasive paper are:
Ordinary abrasive paper is commonly used to polish rough surfaces, while sponge sandpaper is more suitable for curved surface grinding.
Ordinary sandpaper is generally sheet-shaped, while sponge sandpaper can be made into various shapes and specifications.
Ordinary sandpaper is usually dry grinding, while sponge sandpaper can absorb water, have good water resistance and can be used for dry or wet grinding.
The service life of sponge sandpaper is usually longer than that of ordinary abrasive paper of the same specification.
With the invention and development of sponge sandpaper, more and more occasions have started to use sponge sandpaper. Can sponge sandpaper replace sandpaper? Like ordinary paper sandpaper, sponge sandpaper is a layer of sand planted on paper, while the other is a layer of sand planted on a sponge. It can be said that sponge sandpaper is an advanced product of ordinary abrasive paper. Relatively speaking, sponge sandpaper is more durable than ordinary abrasive paper. Moreover, because sandpaper is made of sponge, the pressure sense is very good when polishing, and the force is very uniform. Although the polishing efficiency is similar to that of ordinary paper sandpaper. However, the feeling of using it during polishing is better than using ordinary paper sandpaper, and the same thickness of sponge sandpaper can polish more evenly than ordinary abrasive paper.
Therefore, in general, sponge sandpaper is better than ordinary abrasive paper and can replace ordinary sandpaper. However, the cost of sponge sandpaper is higher than that of ordinary abrasive paper, so it is mainly used for hand-polishing furniture, polishing plastic products surfaces, car maintenance repainting polishing, metal rust and plastic surface treatment and other high-polishing requirements domains. For ordinary polishing, sandpaper is more economical and practical.
