    Megs Unigrit in all grits

    I ordered these from another online retailer, but they do not say Meguiar's on the back of them. I'm pretty sure this aren't made in Japan by some other company, but just wanted to confirm as I was pretty upset when they arrived. I waited all week for them as I wanted to wet sand my cars bumper that has oxidized. I know it's going to have to be repainted, but just wanted to try the paper out.

    I just want to be sure before I let the other retailer know that I'm not happy. I'm pretty sure I saw Meguiars on them when I went to the wet sanding class last month, but my memory... blah. LOL.

    I mean, how rude to substitute other sandpaper for Meguiars :-(

    Thanks, I really appreciate it!!

    Does the name on the back of the sheets say, "Nikken?"

    If so, pretty sure that they are legit. I've got a couple of 3000 sheets that are labeled that way.

    Hey Bill- Yep Nikken is the name. All of the grits 1000, 1200, 1500
    and so on.
    I thought the products were made here in the US?

    Thanks!

    Cool Re: Megs Unigrit in all grits

    The Nikken abrasive products aren't like common sandpapers. They're made with a unique, proprietary process that produces extremely consistent grit that performs far better than ordinary abrasives. IIRC they were originally developed for high-tech semiconductor manufacturing.

    When Meguiar's discovered The Nikken products they saw their potential for paint finishing and arranged to import them to the US.

    Good post!

    When I replied, for the life of me I couldn't remember the 'facts' behind using Nikken. Old age strikes again (LOL).
