Foam-backed sanding blocks available in a wide range of shapes & grades suitable for precision finishing of wood, fillers, paint & varnish. In a special process, polyurethane is made into large foam blocks forming the basis of the foam backing. The blocks are then processed into sheets and strips. A thin layer of adhesive is applied in a spraying process where finally the grit is applied in multiple coating stages.

Even with the application of modern technology there will always be a small proportion of manual hand sanding in wood processing and also when finishing painted and varnished surfaces. The combination of a soft application-specific foam backing material and flexible grit bond reduces clogging, maintains even application pressure & is highly adaptable to profiled or contoured surfaces. As the abrasive does not crease or fold, it maintains a uniform, scratch-free finish. To view the full range of foam abrasive products, please select from the list below.
