Sandpaper that can be used with water or other lubricants, making possible the sanding of some plastics and metals that is not possible with dry sanding. The lubricant cools the workpiece, washes away swarf, reduces friction, produces finer finishes, resists rusting (with additives), improves abrasive life and combats loading of the coated abrasive.
