What is a Sanding Disc?

A sanding disc is a circular-shaped abrasive tool used for sanding, grinding, and finishing various surfaces such as wood, metal, or plastic. It is typically made of sandpaper or a similar abrasive material attached to a backing disc and is designed to be used with a rotary tool or sanding machine. 

Why Use a Sanding Disc?

A sanding disc is designed to remove roughness, burrs, and other imperfections from a surface, as well as to prepare the surface for painting, staining, or further finishing. Sanding discs come in different grits, materials, and sizes to suit various sanding needs and applications, such as rough sanding, fine sanding, and polishing.
