Monadnock manufactures A through E weight abrasive backing papers for the production of wet and dry flexible coated abrasives. These papers are polymer-reinforced to enhance drape and “hand” as well as increase durability, tear resistance, holdout and grit adhesion.

Smooth, level surfaces allow for the uniform deposit of ultra-fine grits. Barrier or “Tie” and Anti-slip surface coatings are available. All abrasive backings may be customized to meet your specifications.
