 Multiple grits.  More coming in the future

 Approximate General equivalency to the micron pads from 3M you may have been using

  • BF2000 - 2000 grit is equivalent to 10.3 micron (I feel like this is more like what a 5 or 6 micron in 3M would feel like because it performs much finer with less scratch.)
  • BF1500 - 1500 grit is equivalent to 12.6 micron ( I feel like this is very similar to a 9 micron in 3M)
  • BF1200 - 1200 grit is equivalent to 15.3 micron (This seems finer and less aggressive than the 3M 15 micron equivalent in my opinion)
  • BF1000 - 1000 grit is equivalent to 18.3 micron (This feels a little finer than 15 micron in the 3M abrasives)
  • BF800 - 800 grit is equivalent to 21.8 micron (Seems to be slightly more aggressive than the 15 micron in 3M)
  • BF600 - 600 grit is equivalent to 25.75 micron (I used this instead of 30 micron. It seems to be slightly less aggressive and a nice starter grit for gently nicked shears)
  • BF500 - 500 grit is equivalent to 30.2 micron (This grit is roughly equivalent to a 30 micron)

Suggestion for flathone shear sharpeners… Start with 600, 1000 and 1500 grit or try some of all to see what grit you like. Mark the center of the Blue Film with size. The Blue Film is marked on the back, but it is hard or impossible to tell apart when on your plates. Experiment with the other grits. Use water on the blue film just as you have the 3M micron film in the past. Please give me your feedback. Personally I like this film more than 3M and am amazed it costs less!
