3M sandpaper is one of the best flooring sandpapers on the market today. 3M is set apart from the competition because of the minerals used in its products. When you use 3M sandpaper you can predict the scratch pattern. The Regalite sandpaper utilizes a mixture of aluminum ceramic making it a great sandpaper for removing the old finish. Regalite paper is known for its long life as well. Regalite belts from 3M last a long time, wearing much slower than the competitors. The Regalite edger discs are a long-lasting easy-to-use edger disc.

Typically this paper on belts does not wear out very fast on belts and can go extremely long. The edger discs are great and usually can rip right through coatings and not be changed out too often. We find that the 3M sandpaper typically works well on all floor finishes and all types of wood. The other great part is, you know it is Regalite if it is purple!
