    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Awful stuff The package says this product can be used on power sanders. When I used it on my orbital sander, it stuck to the pad and ruined the pad. It will have to be replaced. Not only has 3M mid-labeled the product, but they have also convinced Home Depot to ONLY carry this “No Slip Grip” paper in their stores. There is not a single sheet of ordinary sandpaper in the store. So you have the choice of using this awful stuff or going someplace else.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sandpaper, but... This is awesome sandpaper, but the adhesive surface will tear the surface of the sanding pad off a hand-held, electric sander. I called 3m, and the solution to the problem is to place a piece of wax paper between the sander pad and the adhesive back of the sand paper.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very Poorly Labeled This product should be clearly labeled "NOT FOR POWER SANDERS." As with many others, my orbital pad sander may be ruined. When the paper heats up, the No-Slip material melts and transfers to the sander pad, creating ridges on the pad. And, the 3M response regarding orbital sanders below apparently doesn't understand what an orbital sander is, because I can't find the referenced products on their web site. Discs are the closest they come.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not For Electric Sanders As has been mentioned I was also a victim of this paper used on my palm sander and noe have a ruin sanding pad. DO NOT USE THIS PRODUCT.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from avoid no-slip grip While the sanding surface works well the NO-SLIP GRIP ruins the power tool sanding pad! It sticks and pulls of chunks of the padding material.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from not for orbital sanders Used once on a felt pad orbital sander. Then proceeded to rip the felt off to remove the paper. Seems every store went to no slip grip paper. Does 3M make a paper for people that use orbital sanders?
