Hi I got a set of micro mesh 2” sanding discs from packard but the colors don’t line up with the chart. The colors are all blacks greys and clay. How can I tell one grit from another. heres a pic of the colors

Hey Karda,

They should be marked on the back. If not, I think that the grits go from lightest being the lowest number to darkest the highest or finest grit. Those look like a micromesh knock off which works pretty decent, I had gotten a set from Hobby Lobby. The Micromesh brand lasts longer.

Drop Packard an email and see if they respond.
