As many of you already know, Klingspor's stearate coated, hook and loop discs are absolutely top of the line, yet still economical. Many of our customers refuse to use any other brand. These discs are a premium product that stand up to the hardest hardwoods, won't load up with pine and spruce, and hold up really well on painted or varnished surfaces and light metal work. The best stearate coated sandpaper for the money you will ever use! These are the freshest discs available to us.
