SKIN-VIRTUOSO

SKIN-VIRTUOSO

Of course, emery stone can handle any material. But it lacks flexibility, which has sandpaper skin, making her subject to the most “voluptuous” of the surface. By the way, sandpaper it’s called because the ancient craftsmen used pieces of fur with the wet sand, and in coastal cities — the skin of sharks, rough surface which was better than the abrasive.
And if other materials when grinding just find a smooth, shiny surface, the wood is opening more and the natural beauty of its structure. That is why when processing any wooden products are widely used various kinds of abrasive materials. The most common among them is sheet. They differ not only in magnitude grit abrasive surface, but the material of the substrate: the basis of the skin is paper and fabric.
 
Fig.1. Sandpaper is suitable for processing of planes, regardless whether it is about hand grinding or mechanical. However, we have to consider that it is brittle and can not withstand prolonged moisture, because the abrasive layer is kept on paper thanks to water-soluble glues

Fig.2. Sandpaper on the fabric base is more durable, not afraid of excesses, allows wetting of the treated surface to improve the grinding process. These qualities allow greater use of abrasives on the fabric base in a variety of mechanical polishing devices and mechanisms
