NyWeb pads are a non-woven nylon webbing with an abrasive – either silicon carbide or aluminium oxide – embedded into them to give an exactly defined cut.
The Green pads are 400 grit
The Red pads are 600 grit
The Orange pads are 1000 grit
The White pads do not contain an abrasive and are thus technically non-abrasive, but the very texture of the pads gives them an incredibly fine – but immeasurable – cut.
NyWeb is long lasting and economical in use and extremely flexible, able to be moulded to pretty much any shape to get into all those awkward spaces and to not remove any sharp features. In use, as the web wears away, fresh abrasive is exposed to ensure a sharp cut every time.
When NyWeb becomes clogged with dust simply beat it against a suitable surface or use a vacuum cleaner to remove the dust.
NyWeb can be used wet or dry, and the Orange and White are particularly useful for the application of waxes, ensuring a smooth, even coat.
