Micro-Mesh MX Abrasive Sheets are used for finishing metals including stainless steel, copper, brass and aluminium, and other hard woods.
MX Micro-Mesh Abrasives feature a slighter stiffer backing than regular Micro-Mesh. This enables harder polishing of metal surfaces to a very shiny finish, at the same time as allowing the crystals within the Abrasives to move.
This movement cuts metal with a planing motion, creating an extremely consistent scratch pattern and extraordinary levels of gloss.
As a result, MX Micro-Mesh does not leave deep random scratches like other abrasives. It cuts more rapidly because the larger sized crystals have more contact with the surface, preventing the generation of heat or the fracture of the abrasive into the material being restored.
Different grades of MX Abrasives are available. The smaller the number, the coarser the grade. Please note that grades 800 MX and 1200 Mx are made with aluminium oxide crystals.
Micro-Mesh MX Abrasive Sheets are sized 150mm x 300mm. They are long lasting and reusable. Smaller sheets can be purchased as part of the MX-90 Metal Finishing Kit, which also contains a Foam Sanding Block and three 2-Way Flexi-Files covering the entire polishing process.
