Product Description

The Norton 3X abrasive sheet offers more durability over an uncoated abrasive while resisting chip loading. This sheet is used for paint stripping, sanding and finishing on composites and fiberglass, and all-purpose bare wood sanding.

Coated abrasives have individual abrasive grains spaced at a predetermined distance from one another. An open coat covers about 50 to 70 percent of the coated surface with abrasive, for greater flexibility and resistance to clogging than a closed coat, which has 100 percent grain coverage. An open coat allows for longer usage time by clogging less, while a closed coat offers a finer surface finish than an equivalent open-coat abrasive. This sheet is open-coat. The stearate coating offers more durability over an uncoated abrasive while resisting chip loading. Stearated abrasives are non-pigmented to eliminate color transfer to the work surface. These sheets are typically used on portable sheet sanders and portable file sheet machines.

Zirconia alumina is a self-sharpening abrasive that allows for a faster cut rate and longer life than aluminum oxide, due to its ability to fracture and refracture, creating new cutting edges. Zirconia alumina is often used for high stock removal on wood and metals.

Abrasives are used for a variety of applications from shaping a part to fine finishing, depending on the grit size. Low grit numbers like 40 are coarse and are used for removing excess material and shaping a part. High grit numbers like 400 are fine and help to create a smooth surface finish.

Norton Abrasives manufactures a wide variety of sanding, grinding, and polishing abrasives, and has been located in the United States since 1885. In 1990, Saint-Gobain purchased Norton, keeping its manufacturing facilities and offices in the same location. Norton/Saint-Gobain has been recognized as a Global 100 Sustainable Company, as well as earning ISO 9000 and 14001 certification for quality and environmental management standards.

I started using the Norton 3X sandpaper soon after its introduction and now use almost nothing else. For woodturning and woodworking I find it to hold up longer and has very good uniformity of grain size so few if any spurious scratches that you get with cheaper paper. Also, it resists loading and the light paper stands up well to flexing without tearing. I use 80 to 400 grit and all are excellent. It does cost more than common sandpaper but it lasts so long that it ends up being less expensive.

I have been using all sorts of sandpaper on my many furniture projects. On this last project, made from soft maple, I used this paper for the first time. I was amazed! It just kept on going, all I had to do was tap off the collected dust and go back to work. When I reverted to 'ordinary' paper it loaded up in 30 seconds of hand sanding and that was it. I have not compared it to carborundum papers.

The paper doesn't load up and it keeps cutting well for a long time. The backing is really tough too.

I've liked this sandpaper ever since I discovered it 3 years ago. It makes the tedious job of sanding almost enjoyable.

It is much faster cutting and much longer lasting than ordinary sandpaper. 150 grit is perfect for general use.

Klingspor has a similar "Zinc Stearate" sandpaper for a good price if you buy a 50-pack.

I was going through a lot of 120 P paper hand sanding out stray brush marks, imperfections, etc from primer coats. I was able to buy a pack of Norton 3X 150 grit locally at a good price ( though amazon's price is better) so I gave it a go.
I love it!
I do not enjoy sanding prep while painting, (HATE IT!) but you have to do it. There are no shortcuts to great results. This paper makes a tedious job go much faster.
It doesn't load up so a piece lasts a very long time. In my case much more than 3X. And becuse it doesn't load up it continues to cut like a spanking new fresh sheet throughout the process, so the work goes much faster and you don't stop work every 20 minutes to get another fresh sheet. Just shake it out and keep going. If you are paying a crew this stuff would save its price in a day!

You will probably get away with a grit 1 grade finer than you had previously used since there is no initial "dulling" due to the paper loading up in the first minute or two. My change down from 120 grit regular paper to 150 grit 3X worked out just right. It cuts really fast so pay attention that you don't accidently go too far.

Size: 9" x 11"Grit Type: 60Number of Items: 20 Verified Purchase
I first discovered this stuff at Home Depot in 2005 and decided to try it due to the anti-loading claims on the package. It was great. Not only did it not load up with old paint, it continued to cut *long* after standard AO sandpaper quit.

Fast forward to last week when I used the last sheet in the 20+3-sheet "Jobpack/Bonus Pack" and went back to HD looking for more. Of course HD no longer carries this product so I left with what they now have, 3M Pro Grade no-slip grip (tm) backing sandpaper. It supposedly lasts 7X longer than standard sandpaper due to the reinforced backing. Puh-lease...

With that unhappy discovery I went straight to the web and found the Norton 3X sandpaper at Amazon in all the grits I wanted. Three days later USPS delivered my package and I was using the Norton 3X again.It really is the "World's Best Sandpaper" as the package boasts.

I was glad to see that the 3X sandpaper is still made in Canada by Saint-Gobain.

I have allways tried to use the best product available to get the results I want and this 3x is the best. I have tried regular sandpaper and it just does not hold up for long and clogs up constantly but this 3x last 3 times as long just like the name. The 3x costs a little more but when you figure what you spend in "standard" sandpaper you are actually spending 4 or 5 times as much in sandpaper and creating more wasted paper. My local lumber supplier stopped carrying the 3x brand so I searched online and found it and will continue to get it from them. I should have bought more to save some on shipping.

The wooden frame of the porch's door kept sticking. I'd sand, and a few days later it'd stick again. The short lasting sandpaper kept tearing and flustered the user.
Then I tried Norton 60 Grit. It shaved the door quickly and kept it shaved. I could have planed the door or used a wood chisel to take off more wood, but when working on a door, I don't want to chance taking off too much. Kinda hard to put it back. I really pleased with the performance and durability of the Norton 60 grit.
