RUPES Releases Precut Abrasive Soft Rolls
The new RUPES abrasive soft rolls are specifically designed for manual sanding of profiled and irregular surfaces, and for small areas that are normally difficult to reach with pneumatic and electric tools. T

The soft sponge structure promises an ergonomic and comfortable grip. The rolls, packaged in a dispenser box, are precut in 114mm x 125mm strips. The strips work best for dry sanding and on a range of surfaces, including automotive putty, base coats and clear coats. www.rupes.com.
