Abrasive Fabrics
A general term for cotton fabrics used as backings for various abrasive and polishing agents. Usually sheetings and drills are employed extensively and twills in smaller quantities. The fabric is coated on one side with emery carboraundum or other such abrasive grit. These are largely used on industrial machine polishing of metals.
