For Engineering

Wet and Dry is a very versatile consumable as it is effective on all metals. It is also useful for plastics when used wet and for wood where a finer finish is required.

The hard wearing flexible backing is what makes the Matador paper the best choice, generic wet and dry will often break up much sooner.

For Jewellers

Wet and Dry paper is traditionally used by most jewellers to prepare metal for polishing. Ideal for making into sanding sticks. Normally starting at 500 grit is sufficient, then move up through the grits to 1200 grit followed by a mop and Apollo (cutting compound). Finer grits than 1200 will improve the finish and will reduce how much polishing with compound is required.

You may find Micromesh is a good alternative which lasts longer and has a tougher fabric backing making it more flexible.
