newbie Granat P1200 mounting question
« on: November 15, 2018, 09:40 PM »
Hey! A quick newbie question about Granat P1200 sand paper. I got some P1200 discs for my ETS EC 125. But which side do I mount?

The blue side (with no lettering) appears to be grippy to the pad. But the side with the letters (which is more white is color) and for 90/120/220/320 grit paper, is the side that normally grabs to the pad, does not grip. This makes no sense to me, would I be sanding with the lettering facing out and towards the work piece? This seems backwards to the other papers. Obviously I am not in the know, but could use a tip here.

I'll check mine tomorrow. I've never paid attention to which way it went on.

The coarser sheets that I have mount blue side out (towards the work). Seems worth calling tech support, you may have a defective batch.

You are correct in your observations.
Granat P800 to P1500 mount with the writing out (writing against the work piece), unlike P40 to P500 which mounts with the writing against the pad.
