Silicon Carbide Sandpaper

Silicon carbide sandpaper is an indispensable partner for DIY home renovation enthusiasts, from removing rust to smoothing rough surfaces or priming and sanding between coats of paint – silicon carbide sandpaper provides reliable results every time!

When purchasing a silicone carbide sanding disc, one of the primary considerations should be its grit size. This is determined by how tightly bonded its silicon carbide grains are to its backing material which could either be paper or fabric.

Exceptional Hardness

Black silicon carbide powder is an extremely versatile material used in multiple industries. It is commonly found in bonded and coated abrasives, sawing quartz sawing tools, pressure blasting (wet or dry), semiconductors and electronics because of its excellent thermal conductivity and wear resistance properties.

Silicon Carbide abrasives are hard and sharp abrasives designed to work efficiently at sanding tough materials like metal, stone, glass and cork with minimal force application, producing smooth surfaces for woodworking applications that require precision, such as veneer sanding or dense hardwoods. Their razor-sharp grains can easily scour scuffs away with no visible scratches on metal, stone, glass and cork surfaces with precision for veneer sanding veneers or dense hardwoods sanding veneers or dense hardwoods sanded smooth to create refined surfaces suitable for woodworking applications like veneer sanding veneers or dense hardwoods sanded smooth for woodworking applications that require precision; their razor sharp grains help cut right through materials while leaving no visible scratches behind on woodworking applications that demand precision scrubbing metal, stone, glass, cork surfaces allow these hard materials with precision; its razor sharp grains make short work of metal stone stones stones capable of scrubbing metal, stone glass cork surfaces giving usable surfaces for woodworking applications that require precision like veneer sanding veneers or dense hardwood sanding applications that need precision; creating smooth surfaces suitable for woodworking applications that demand precision when sanding veneers or dense hardwood surfaces require precision when used to produce smooth refined surfaces suitable for woodworking applications that demand precision like veneering veneers or dense hardwoods sanding applications like veneering veneers or dense hardwood sanding applications that need precision like veneer sanding materials such as when scrubbing metal, stone scrubbing metal, stone cork with minimal force application when used to scrub metal stones stones cork in woodworking applications that need precise finish sanding veneer sanding veneer sanding veneering veneering dense hardwoods require precise finishes as woodworking applications when sanding veneering veneer or dense woodworking applications sanding dens to sanding dens with density hardwoods dense hardwoods sanding dense hardwoods needs precision such sanding veneers or dense hardwoods needs precision when using other than cork scork.

Mohs hardness scale ranks synthetic silicon carbide third after diamond and boron carbide; its hardness stems from its covalently bound structures of carbon and silicon, held together through four tetrahedral structures within its crystal lattice. Carborundum can only be exceeded by diamond and boron carbide in hardness. Manufactured via resistance furnace heating of high-grade quartz sand mixed with petroleum coke, crushed, washed, magnetic separation treatment, sieving then sieved to produce multiple particle sizes suitable for use in abrasives.

Durability makes the material an excellent choice for both wet and dry sanding applications, particularly paint preparation for automotive purposes where its toughness helps sand and shape substrates while also eliminating remnants of old or defective coatings.

Rapid Stock Removal

Silicon carbide abrasives are sharper and more aggressive than aluminum oxide, facilitating material removal during sanding operations more quickly. Furthermore, they offer excellent heat resistance – keeping grain cool during intense sanding operations with high cutting pressure to preserve integrity of abrasives while preventing frictional degradation.

Black silicon carbide sandpaper is an indispensable resource for woodworkers, who rely on it to prepare surfaces prior to staining or painting. Furthermore, its hard surface-graining abilities are ideal for cast iron castings, non-ferrous metals (brasses and bronze), low tensile strength metals like aluminum and low tensile strength alloys like magnesium. Furthermore, glass rubber and plastic materials also respond well.

Silicone carbide sandpaper has become an invaluable ally in vehicle restoration, thanks to its ability to tackle challenging contours with finesse. Coarser grits make for efficient shaping and leveling operations while finer grades provide surfaces suitable for polishing.

Our 2×72 industrial grade silicon carbide sandpaper is the ideal choice for fine finishing at lower pressure levels, featuring a closed coat and optimal grain coverage that ensures superior results when wet or dry applications are undertaken. Furthermore, this abrasive can also be used for knife scale finishing, lapidary work and any application requiring consistent scratch patterns; its material remains sharp yet friable for prolonged wear-resistance; however it wears down more quickly than other forms.


Silicon carbide sandpaper has the versatility to abrade many materials from woodworking projects to automotive repairs, providing superior finesse in any DIY endeavor. From woodworking to automotive repairs, silicon carbide sandpaper’s versatility enables it to serve as a finishing abrasive that takes any DIY endeavor to another level.

Due to its impressive heat resistance, which prevents thermal degradation during intensive sanding processes and helps ensure its sharpness is preserved even under demanding conditions.

Silicon carbide sandpaper is often utilized as the final touch in woodworking projects, sanding veneers and dense hardwoods to perfection. Furthermore, this sandpaper can also be used on metal, glass, plastic, and stone surfaces to achieve flawless finishes across various surfaces.

Silicon carbide sanding discs are an increasingly popular choice for automotive bodywork. Used to remove rust and smooth rough edges before painting, they’re also often employed in auto repair applications like smoothing out dents or smoothing body filler.

Sanding discs can be an invaluable resource for DIYers, yet not suitable for every task. Silicon carbide discs tend to wear down quickly when compared with diamond grinding discs; therefore they should not be used on hard materials like granite and marble. Furthermore, their increased brittleness means they tend to clog more often than other forms of sandpaper which reduces their effectiveness over time and requires frequent cleaning or replacement.


Silicon carbide sandpaper offers superior performance when it comes to painting removal, leveling surfaces or polishing your creations. Unlike aluminum oxide, this hard and sharp material cuts quickly for consistent results with minimal effort required from you. You can choose coarse grits for smoothing rough edges while shaping projects or finer grades for staining or painting surfaces.

2Sand provides high-performance dry and wet sanding discs designed for efficient dry/wet sanding applications, including goggles and dust masks to meet any sandpaper application safely and efficiently. Always follow the recommended speed settings to reduce premature wear/damage to your equipment.

Our selection of silicon carbide sandpaper includes discs featuring various backing materials and bonding styles, suitable for different surfaces. Paper-backed discs work best on curves or contoured areas while cloth options provide better durability and tear resistance for heavy-duty applications. In addition, anti-clog, no-load resin over grit discs are designed to last long in everyday use and make natural stone sanding much simpler with their durable resin bond that prevents loading up or dislodging when exposed to hot temperatures.
