When preparing whitewood for final finish, 3M™ offers you a complete system of products including abrasives and accessories for your hand sanding application.
As a starting point, the below instructions are for hand sanding with 3M abrasive sheet products.

Please note that all processes recommended on our website are an excellent starting point for rapidly achieving good finish results. However every application is unique so please contact 3M Technical Support at 1-888-745-4324 to discuss your specific application.
  • STEP ONE
    Sand imperfections from the whitewood work piece using an aluminum oxide abrasive in grades 80, 100 or 120.
  • STEP TWO
    Refine the finish of your workpiece by sanding with an aluminum oxide abrasive in grades 120 or 150.
  • STEP THREE
    (Optional) If you require a slightly finer finish we recommend a silicon carbide abrasive in grades 180 or 220.
