As a professional, you already know that refinishing hardwood floors is one of the best ways to keep the wood beautiful and smooth. And for that to happen, you’re going to need the right machines, abrasives, and floor sanding products available on the market. Sanding papers are one of them.
At First Atlanta Flooring, we carry the best-quality sanding papers to make sure your client is satisfied with the final result. The Norton sanding papers we have in our shop vary from coarse, medium, fine, and very fine (20, 36, 80, 100, or 120-grit), accommodating any type of hardwood flooring.
In our online shop, you will find two types of sanding papers: double-sided discs and sand dollars. The double-sided products make hard plating quicker and easier by eliminating the need to mechanically fasten the disc to the bottom of the buffer. This will help prevent the disc from prematurely tearing at the center hole. The sand dollar products are meant to prepare the floor for the next coat of finish without the risk of swirl marks. The foam backing pad abrades the surface without penetrating too deep into the finish, resulting in a smoother overall floor.

What kind of sanding paper do I need for hardwood floors?
It’s recommended to start with 36-grit sanding papers for floors that haven’t been sanded in a long time or that have a lot of heavy finish on them. Floors that have been painted may require to go tougher and use 24 or 16-grit sanding paper. Maple floors are so hard that they often require 36-grit sandpaper. Most jobs work up to around 120-grit for the final sand.
Which grit sanding paper should I use?
At First Atlanta Flooring, sand dollars come in different colors, depending on the type of material they’re suitable for. Dark sanding paper sheets are best for natural wood, chipboard, and metal, while lighter colors often last longer and can be used for paint, filling materials, and wall putty.
- Blue sand dollars – can be used to sand raw wood, in the surface prep process (both light and heavy wear recoating), as well as on oil-modified or acid-cure sealer coating; best for coarse sanding (100-120 grit).
- Red sand dollars – can be used for surface prep, when recoating lightwear; it also works on top of water-based or oil-based sealers (120-150 grit); red sand dollars are not to be used on raw wood planks.
- Yellow sand dollars – usually used in the finishing process (for oil modified, acid cure, and waterbase finish), and also on top of water-based sealers (150-180 grit).
- Green sand dollars – can be used for light abrading before the final coat of waterbase (220 grit); also, used for removing dust particles and raised fibers between coats, and even sanding between layers of finish.
