Diamond Lapping Film 4.25" X 11"
Single half sheets of diamond lapping film available in 80, 60, 45, 30, 15, 9, 6, 3, 1 and 0.5 micron grades. Manufactured with PSA (pressure sensitive adhesive) backing.
Unlike common sandpapers, these industrial sharpening films are designed for cutting metal and have the grit (diamond particles) anchored in a layer of resin. The resin holds the grit to the paper in a very strong bond. You'll notice how they are more durable and last longer than traditional grade papers.
Our Diamond Lapping Film is our most aggressive abrasive film. The extremely hard diamond particles sharpens fast and last longer than any other material. These films comes with pressure sensitive adhesive (PSA) backing and is a wide range of abrasive grades from 0.5 Micron to 80 Micron, for precise performance.
Sharpo's diamond lapping film have a 3mils thick (.003") backing to make the film less prone to tearing. The adhesive (PSA) backing makes it very easy to use. Simply peel off the paper backing and press it down on glass or other flat, smooth surface.
The 4.25" X 11" (half sheet) Diamond Lapping Film is a perfect fit for 5" X 12" glass plates.

I have come to find out the 1200 grit doesn't last very long AND the adhesive stays on whatever it is applied to and therefore makes a big mess problem cleaning it off before I can apply another sheet in its place! The 500 and 3000 grit seem to last a little longer and the adhesive pulls off with the sheet which is perfect and ideal to replace the new sheet. I'm going back to using diamond stones for a few reasons. One is, I have to be careful with these sheets because they will scratch easily and tear if I am not careful with blade placement.
Exactly what I wanted for my glass slabs. Gets all of my carving tools wicked sharp. Even attached to dowels for my hook knives. Will be buying more of it shortly.
