What sandpaper does Champion Timber stock?
Here we supply all variations of sandpaper, either in rolls or sheets ideal. Covering all the grades to give your timber the finishing touch with a nice, significantly improved smooth surface. With sandpaper from finishing sheets to rough grit-roll, we cover all the areas ideal for sanding wood.
Aluminum oxide sandpapers are the most frequently used grain in the industry because it does a pristine job on a number of materials. As well as keeping this in stock, we also stock silicon carbide sandpaper, which is perfect for the wet sanding of flat surfaces such a stone.
For heavy sanding and stripping, you need coarse sandpaper measuring 40 to 60 grit; for smoothing rough surfaces and removing small imperfections, choose 80 to 120 fine grit sandpaper. For finishing surfaces smoothly, use superfine sandpaper with 360- to 600-grit, this finer-grit sandpaper is perfect if you want to polish metal or smoothen wood.
How do I know what sandpaper to use?
When shopping for sanding papers, you'll see numbers such as 80-grit, 100-grit, or 200-grit. Keep in mind: The higher the number, the smaller the grains and the finer the sandpaper grit sizes. And, conversely, lower numbers indicate larger grains and sandpaper for metal with coarse grits for heavier use that can remove rust.
Our range of sandpaper also includes more durably backed sandpaper that is not intended for sanding by hand but instead by power tools. Some common tools that are used to sand large areas quickly would be an orbital sander or belt sander. These sanding tools are perfect for any type of sandpaper and can be used for sanding metal surfaces and timber.
