I would recommend Granat.

I agree completely.  I find that while expensive, the Granat discs are tough and last a long time (cloth-backed) and leave a wonderful finish.  They have kind of spoiled me for other sandpapers. ;)

3M Cubitron II Xtract hook and loop net discs for epoxy surfaces. Don't want to be breathing that dust in at all, nasty stuff.
