    Is sanding really that important for the finish?

    Sanding a surface before painting it helps to create a smooth, even surface for the paint to adhere to. This can help to ensure a more consistent and professional-looking finish. Additionally, sanding can remove any dirt, grime, or other debris that may be present on the surface, which can help to prevent imperfections in the final paint job.

    Sanding can also help to remove any old paint or varnish that may be present, which can help to ensure better adhesion of the new paint.

     

    Finishing pads

    Finishing pads are special types of sanding pads. They are typically made of foam or other soft materials and are used with fine-grit sandpaper to achieve a smooth, polished finish on wood, and other surfaces.

    Finishing pads come in a variety of shapes and sizes, and can be used with different types of power sanders such as orbital sanders, random orbital sanders, and dual-action sanders.

    Automatic belt sanders

    Automatic belt sanders are a type of power tool that uses a continuous loop of sandpaper to sand large surfaces quickly and efficiently. They are typically used for woodworking and metalworking applications, and can be used to sand down rough surfaces, remove paint, and create a smooth, even finish.

    They are called 'automatic' because they have a conveyor belt system that automatically moves the material through the sander, this allows the operator to work on multiple pieces at the same time.

    Examples of sanding belt producers are:
