NyWeb Pads – Post sanding smoothing pads
Smooth surfaces after sanding
Use Nyweb Pads once you have finished sanding. They will further smooth the surface and prepare it for whatever finish you plan to apply. Nyweb Pads are slightly abrasive and the results will be a silky smooth surface that allows your chosen wood finish to shine. Will not leave any residue on the work piece. Long lasting, will not break up with use but is easy to trim to size. Different powder coatings on the Nylon controls the amount of abrasion. White pads are pure nylon and therefore have no coating.
Start with the Green Nyweb Pad and then move onto Red and then Orange to gradually refine the wood surface.
Safety note: If using Nyweb Pads on a spinning lathe hold the pads loosely with the palm of your hand. Do not grip the pad with your fingers. Push it gently to the spinning work piece. In the event of the pad being snagged by the work piece it will not drag your hand with it because you are not gripping the pad.
Nyweb Pads Colours Explained:
- Green – Standard abrasion
- Red – Extra fine abrasion
- Orange – Ultra fine abrasion
- White – Not abrasive, main use is in the even application of stains and other finishes.
