What is a Cushioned Abrasive? Sylmasta Micromesh Abrasives are cushioned to prevents the abrasive grit from digging deeply into the surface and cutting aggressively. Instead, the flexible, cushioned backing prevents the abrasive from digging into the surface, even if too much pressure is applied, resulting in an even, regular scratch pattern.
The flexible nature of the cushioned backing also make Sylmasta Micromesh Abrasives very flexible and able to conform to unconventional shapes.
