Product Details

3M Sanding Sponges are designed for wet or dry sanding on wood, paint, metal, plastic or drywall. Use this medium-grit sponge for moderate stripping or surface leveling in preparation for a coating. Sanding is an integral step in preparing a surface to receive a coating. For the best sanding results, sand with the grain of the surface and work through a sequence of grits, from course to very fine, skipping no more than one grit between each sanding step.

Questions & Answers

Q:can I use this for dipping in paint on a concrete wall to paint a brick pattern look.

Answer This Question

A:  You could, but I think it might be too stiff and flat to create the look you want. A sponge is what you need. You can use a sponge, get a stencil, use painters tape, or even paint it by hand. But I would not recommend using these as a “brick pattern maker”.

    Answer This Question

    A:  80 grit gets the rough sanding done first, then use a higher grit for a smooth finish.

    A:  I wouldn't pay attention to the grit, just the "Fine" or "Medium"

    A:  Fine is 120 Grit 3M 3.75 in. x 2.625 in. x 1 in. 120 Grit Fine Sanding Sponges

      A:  The words Medium and Fine for sanding paper usually are another way to denote grit ranges. 80 grit is on the higher end of the Medium designation and I would say the Fine designation is usually higher 100+0. The word designations in general give a guide for the smoothness that will be achieved...medium usually means that there needs to be another round of sanding with fine grit sand paper. I'm wondering if the 80 grit labelled fine is possibly mislabeled.

      Answer This Question

      A:  You may be correct there is an inconsistency. However, to me it appears the Word "Fine" may be what is incorrect...Based on the Grit of 80 and other places in the description where it is referred to as "Medium" grit. In looking at other similar products that are listed as "Fine", the grit appears to be 120. I recommend you buy based on the grit your need.

      by|May 5, 2023

      A:  I was guessing 120 - 150 grit.

      by|Aug 20, 2019

        A:  Most of the time I use a 200 grit.

        PLEASE 3M - Please mark your multi-packs with the grit. The package is marked "FINE", but the packaging does not state the grit. These sanding blocks also do not have the grit marked on the end of the block like most 3M products, so if they are out of the box, you may not know what grit you are using. The photo of the product packaging shows that the grit is marked on the end of the block, but none of the (6) in the package that I purchased were marked with the grit or the description. This product description shown does not match the product - 80 grit is not "fine" and this sanding block is not 80 grit, however, it is not a "fine" as other 3M products marked "Fine" like the 3M 220 in the comparison photo provided. In my opinion, this product is a medium grit of 120 - 150. I bought this product in the store and knew what I was getting, however, if you buy this product online according to the description shown, you are bound to be disappointed. This is not 80 grit, nor is it "Fine", both which appear in the description.

        3M +marginal sanding sponges. loose their cut quickly in custom finishing shop, for final prep and in between coats I only use these if I am out of sponges we normally use from Industrial Abrasives Co. (Thats actually the name of the place)

        Great Value, Does the job
        We're completely happy with these sponges. After having a few DIY drywalling rooms under our belt, we've learned a few things along the way. I personally love these sponges because they grip well and sand evenly. Having a whole sponge to grip, that's flexible for corners and hard spots made a huge difference for us. Having a 6 pack is useful as you'll need more that one sponge for the job. PROS: the flexible sponge, the gripping size, it's double-sided, value pack CONS: none that I can think of

        Oh Sandy
        Sanding sponges are easy to use and effective with the added benefit that any clogging of the sanding surface can be rinsed away. I find sponges particularly useful when sanding irregular shapes as the pliability of the sponge makes it easier to get into corners and folds. By way of demonstration I decided to sand down a roughly painted block with this fine sanding sponge. It took just minutes to sand one half smooth enough to give a second coat of paint.

        Fine Sanding Control
        The 3M 80 Grit Fine Sanding Sponges are a convenient way to get your sanding jobs done. For me, the size of the sponge fits my hand nicely and I don't have to struggle with attaching a piece of sandpaper to a sander. The sponges come in a six pack so you can stock up for your sanding needs. Each sponge can be rinsed and re-used, which is a definite advantage over sheet sanding paper. I found them easy and simple to use. My one concern is environmental; I have no idea what the sponge itself is made of and what impact throwing it away has on the environment.

        Works easily and fits the hand nicely
        Attached are two pictures. The first is after rubbing cotton on a piece of white oak not sanded. The second picture is of it sanded with this sponge sander 20 times both ways. No cotton caught on any of the wood grain. These sponge sanders fit the hand well and are a little squeezable for a better grip if needed. The corners get nicely into a inside corner too.

        Sanding sponges
        Sanded sponges worked out fine. I do wish you sold more double sided sanding sponges with a different grit on each side .
