These can be used in conjunction with water, which acts as a lubricant to remove any particles that might form a blockage in the grit.

When building bridges and other structures, sanding pads are used in metalworking processes including weld preparation and welding seam smoothing. Sanding pads are also used on floors, ramps, steps, and stairways in construction buildings, all of which are prone to slipping. Similar to this, many building materials are created using mechanical and abrasive processes including grinding, lapping, polishing, and others. Diamond-tipped saw blades, abrasive compounds, and cutting and grinding discs are all used in the construction industry.
