Sanding accessories

Generally, sanders are used to smooth out a surface and then give a required finish depending on the grit size used.

  • Abrasive brushes - typically used for cleaning and removing burrs. Available in a range of materials, grain sizes and brush types including circular, cup and abrasive end brushes.

  • Sanding belts - designed for use with a bench or handheld belt sander. Various grit materials and grit grades can be selected depending on the material and abrasion level required.

  • Sanding discs - sanding paper for use with power tools such as an orbital or detail sander. Common uses include smoothing or polishing surfaces and preparing materials before applying paint. Sanding discs are usually available with either self-adhesive or hook and loop backing. They are available with different grits, types and sizes.

Grinding accessories

Grinders are used to remove large amounts of material or to cut materials such as metal and stone. There are various types of grinding machines available, such as an angle grinder or bench grinder which carry out slightly different actions and use particular grinding wheels to be able to do so.

  • Finishing/Polishing Wheels - designed as the final stage of surface preparation, these are available in various grades. The construction of these wheels can vary from cloth, nylon or aluminium oxide

  • Cutting discs - designed to specifically cut metal and stone objects, they're available for either wet or dry use. Some have a specialist diamond coating for extended performance.

  • Grinding discs - wheels designed to grind and shape materials such as stone or metal. They differ in design slightly so it is best to check it is compatible with the material you will be using it with.
