Sandpaper is used in many home projects. You should pay close attention to the uses for the sandpaper type before making your purchase. If you need to remove light scratches, be sure to choose super fine sandpaper. If you are doing heavy sanding or stripping, then your choice should be a coarse grade.
There are six types of sandpaper size for commercial use. They are coarse, medium, fine, very fine, extra fine and super fine.
For commercial use, there are six types of grit available, starting from 40-60 and going to 360-600. The higher the number, the finer the grit.
