Sanding Discs for Educational Institutions

Trade schools and other educational institutions that offer shop classes need many types of equipment. Whether students will be working with metal or wood, they require access to sanders and sanding discs to prepare surfaces for painting, polish surfaces and complete other essential tasks.

Because trade schools host many students every day, they must regularly restock materials used in wood shop and metal shop classes. It’s important to find a supplier that can provide high-quality sanding discs in bulk quantities. At National Abrasives, Inc., we carry a wide range of sanding discs for educational institutions, so you can find options that will match your classroom applications as well as your budget.

Choosing Sanding Discs for Your Trade School or Classroom

Sanding discs attach to electric or pneumatic sanders and rotate at high speeds to remove material and light defects from a variety of materials. These abrasive discs speed up the sanding process significantly, making them essential tools that every wood shop and metal shop student should know how to use.

Depending on the application and your expectations for durability and performance, you may need to choose sanding discs with a particular backing or grit. Backing materials include paper, cloth and fiber. Grit sizes can be large or small and are measured in the number of sharp particles per square inch. If your trade school teaches students to use sanders for a variety of tasks, you may want to have multiple kinds of sanding discs on hand.

The selection of sanding discs at National Abrasives, Inc. includes:

  • Mirka Bulldog Gold sanding discsManufactured by an industry leader, these high-quality sanding discs are suitable for automotive refinishing, wood processing, composite processing, paint and decoration applications and more.
