3M™ Paper Sheet 405U is a silicon carbide sheet constructed on an A-weight, light paper backing. It features a load-resistant coating and open coat construction.
Paper Backing for Conformability to Contours
The light A-weight backing provides conformability over contours and into crevices and corners. The sheet can also be easily cut to fit a hand pad block, inline sander, or finishing or power sanders. Other applications include general sanding, finishing, blending, surface leveling, prep prior to staining/painting and scuff sanding between coatings.
