3M™ Utility Cloth Sheet 011K is a light-weight pliable abrasive cloth sheet made from emery and used for hand polishing of wood and soft metals. Although in most cases aluminum oxide has replaced natural minerals because of its superior cut-rate and durability, many traditionalists still prefer softer natural minerals such as emery for final finishes.
The light J-weight cloth backing on our 3M™ Utility Cloth Sheet provides excellent flexibility and durability, even when rolled or folded. On the other hand, the cloth can be torn by hand when a smaller piece is needed, without compromising the sanding surface. This multi-use sheet comes in three grades: coarse, medium, and fine.
Our utility cloth sheets are suitable for many different sanding and maintenance applications on metal or wood surfaces. The cloth backing in sheet form provides the flexibility needed to sand circular edges or small pieces, without tearing as easily as paper or losing grit from folding or bending.
