Intercoat Abrasion Sandpaper & Screens
Intercoat abrasion, also known as screen and recoat, is a process used to restore the finish on a hardwood floor without sanding down to the raw wood. This process involves lightly abrading the surface of the existing finish with a fine grit sandpaper or abrasive pad, then applying a new coat of finish over top. Intercoat abrasion is a less invasive and time-consuming process compared to full sanding and refinishing, and it can be used to refresh the appearance of a floor without completely removing the existing finish. It is an excellent option for maintaining the appearance of a hardwood floor and extending its life without the need for a full refinish.
Norton blaze is for ripping finish off and getting hte floro flat. Red heat is good for refinishes that are pretty flat already and for final sanding. THAT DOES NOT MEAN red heat cannot be used for intial cuts, orange blaze just lasts longer and is sharper. However, the blaze mineral is not the best for final sanding on a belt. The scratches are deeper.
Each manufacturer of sandpaper has different levels of sandpaper. The highest current grain is full ceramic. The full ceramic lasts longer, does NOT create bad scratches and is decent pricing. Overall you will find that 3M will last long and works well, but does not excel at any given thing. Norton paper is made in different types and the different types work great fo different senarios and produce less scratches.
