    Ungrit Sanding Discs & Finishing Discs

    *** New Products for 2010 ***


    Ungrit Premium Professional Finishing System – DA Application

    DA – Sanding Disc vs Finishing Disc


    “Sanding” Disc

    • Sanding = No foam backing (commonly called a “film” disc)
    • Designed to level texture or remove heavy surface defects


    “Finishing” Disc

    • Finishing = Specialized foam backing (commonly called a “foam” disc)
    • Designed to refine sanding marks & remove light to moderate surface defects


    In the image below you can clearly see the specialized foam backing on the finishing disc on the left. The disc on the right is a sanding disc of the same grit - notice the lack of a foam backing, hence the common term "film" disc.





    Advantages to DA Sanding/Finishing

    • Faster = More profitable
    • More uniform / consistent = less buffing time
    • Less fatigue
    • More material cost, less labor costs

    _________________________________________________________________________________________



    Sanding Disc Product Attributes:


    • Precise, uniform grit particles for a smooth and even sanding pattern
    • Ideal for removal of dirt, orange peel and severe paint defects on fresh finishes
    • Sanding = No foam backing
    • Quickly levels texture
    • Micro hook / loop attachment system

    I love that Uni-grit is expanding the product for D/A use but the pricing seems high.

    For example 3M 6" 3000 grit is only 4.95 per disc Trizact and Mirka is even lower yet.

    I fully understand the diff with Uni-grit techno but from a marketing stand point I would have the pricing could be closer. JMHO

    Your feedback is greatly appreciated, Frank, but keep in mind these are MSRP prices so street pricing could potentially be lower depending on your source.

    Yea I do get pretty $ from my supplier. I was hoping Uni Grit would come out with some new products Especially with 3M's patent on 3000 grit expired so that should help with pricing as well.

    I do love the uniformity cut with Uni Grit.

    Re: Ungrit Sanding Discs & Finishing Discs

    Anyone know if there's a source that has these in stock? I haven't seen them from ADS, Autogeek, etc. at all, but I do see them posted with prices and showing "ships within 1 day" availability at detailing.com -- and I've never dealt with that particular supplier so I don't know whether or not to trust it....

    Same here. Saw one seller on ebay selling the said product. I ended up buying a few boxes of 1500 & 3000 grit from 3M.

    These are just now starting to ship so it may still be a couple of weeks or so before you find them in stores or even at online sellers.
