Microfinishing Sharpening Film 4.25" X 11"
Single half sheets of Microfinishing Film available in 80, 60, 50, 40, 30, 20, 15, 12, and 9 micron grades. Manufactured with PSA (pressure sensitive adhesive) backing.
Microfinishing Film is more aggressive than lapping film and is backed by a 5mils durable backing.
Unlike common sandpapers, these industrial sharpening films are designed for cutting metal and have the grit (Aluminum Oxide) 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.
Sharpo's Microfinishing Film have a 5mils thick backing to make the film more durable and 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.
All of Sharpo's sharpening film share these great features:
• Precision Graded: Superior to traditional sandpapers.
• Faster: Unlike whetstones, prep work is not necessary. Start sharpening right away.
• Easier: The films adhesive back adheres to glass and easily peals away when ready to be replaced.
• Stronger: Water proof and oil resistant. Lasts longer than sandpaper.
• Precise: More grades allows for micro precision and extreme sharpness.
• Manufactured in the USA.
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.
