Emery paper is a type of abrasive paper or sandpaper that can be used to abrade (remove material from) surfaces or mechanically finish a surface. Operations include deburring, polishing, paint removal, corrosion removal, sizing, etc. This is accomplished by moving the abrasive-coated paper, with some pressure, against the object being processed. Abrasion may be performed by hand, electrically powered, or air powered equipment.
Abrasives are materials, usually minerals, that are used to finish or shape a working piece or other material through friction or rubbing, which in turn wears away the surface of the workpiece or subject material. There are a multitude of domestic (residential), commercial, industrial and research and development (R&D) or technological applications in processes such as buffing, cutting, drilling, grinding, honing, lapping, polishing, sanding (abrasive machining), and sharpening. Many factors are at play in determining how quickly a substance is abraded, including the adhesion between the grains, contact force, hardness differential between the two substances, grain size, loading, and the use of coolant, lubricant, or metalworking fluid.
There is high demand for sand paper products for finishing and smoothing layers in industries. The Coated Abrasives Market is a growing market with many applications of abrasive coating on various products such as abrasive wheels, sandpaper or abrasive paper, grinding disk and abrasive rolls etc. used in various end user industries due to the abrasive surface across the globe. This market is expected to witness high demand owing to the increasing production of abrasive cloth, abrasive sheets by coated abrasives manufacturers and growing supply by abrasive suppliers for end use purposes in various regions across the globe in the upcoming years.
