This 6 piece Mini Hard Block Set is ideal for blocking features and small detail areas to achieve a perfectly flat finish.
When used with coarse papers the blocks are great for roughing filler in detail areas and feature lines. For sanding primers and surfacers, the rigidity will cut highs quick and not allow the block to “fall” into low areas. Combined with adhesive backed abrasive paper or folded over regular papers the thinner pieces can also be used to fit in between panel gaps to tune and square up edges.
For blocking details papers can be folded over and used to grip while allowing the Mini Block to bend and create a natural curve. Adhesive backed papers are great – apply different grits to each side to quickly move through the paper grades.
When working on the initial stage of cutting back clears the different material thickness provide hardness yet offers just the right amount of flexibility. The first cut of clear is crucial to achieve that glass finish.
Material used is especially formulated to be extremely abrasion resistant, dimensionally stable, waterproof and solvent proof for cleaning.

* Interesting Fact: It was very common (and still is) for old school custom painters to wrap sandpaper around mixing sticks and timber rulers for fine blocking and cutting clear. Many sanding block manufacturers have replicated these dimensions in their products.
