While organizing my new sandpaper station I discovered some old sandpaper with these grades marked on the back: No. 0/2; No. 1; and No. 2. Also it is marked as Qaurtz paper. Does anyone know what this scale is and how it fits into the CAMI and FEPA scales of sandpaper grit? Thanks for any help.

Quartz is just the material; it’s crushed rock instead of aluminum oxide or whatever.

PS: I did a little more looking and found this “Flint (or flintstone) is a hard, sedimentary cryptocrystalline form of the mineral quartz.” Flint paper I’ve heard of; I think I have some ancient 36 grit stuff out in a drawer somewhere in the garage.

Have your say...
