Please note that silicon carbide is less efficient at dissipating heat than aluminum oxide paper – as a result, this paper should be used for wet sanding only (low speed rotary or orbital) to avoid burning your work surface! Due to higher-than-typical pricing, 800 grit sandpaper discs are available only with silicon carbide abrasive and in 5″ diameter discs.

Silicon carbide is a sharper and harder grain compared to aluminum oxide, but silicon carbide is less durable because it is brittle and has a more narrow shape that wears down at an increased rate. However, for finishing, nothing is better than silicon carbide because it’s very forgiving.
