Practical advice

Select a low speed when polishing in order to avoid heating up the surface excessively.

The material removal rate when sanding is primarily determined by the choice of sanding sheet and the preselected orbital stroke rate (1).

Only immaculate sanding sheets achieve good sanding performance and make the power tool last longer.

Be sure to apply consistent contact pressure in order to increase the lifetime of the sanding sheets.

Excessively increasing the contact pressure will not lead to increased sanding performance, rather it will cause more severe wear of the power tool and of the sanding sheet.

To sand corners, edges and hard-to-reach areas accurately, you can also work with the tips alone or with an edge of the sanding plate.

Do not use a sanding sheet for other materials after it has been used to work on metal.

Use only original Bosch-sanding accessories.
