Master-Sand™: Best Pricing. Best Quality. Best Value.

Here’s an example of how Master-Sand™ sanding brushes can really boost your bottom line.

A typical sanding brush:
55 mm height
630 mm length
Cora KF376 green aluminum oxide abrasive


Typical Retail Prices:

  • European manufacturer: US$33.32 per brush ($1199.52 for set of 36)
  • Master-Sand™ replacement sanding brushes: US$17.86 per brush ($642.96 for set of 36)


What’s the difference?  When it comes to performance and durability, NOTHING.  When it comes to lead time, we’ll deliver faster.  When it comes to price, you save $15.46 per brush, and put over $550 in your pocket for each sanding head you fill.

We understand times are tough.  Why spend more on European-made brushes when you can get the best quality and the best service at the best price?

No price increases from Master-Sand™

Hi, folks.  We heard through the grapevine today that our European competition is raising prices.  We just want to remind you that we offer the same Cora green abrasives they do, mounted on a top-quality brush, at a much better price.  We can also still use Deer AO and SC abrasives for higher-volume customers looking for a great value. We’ve held our prices the same since January 1, 2009.

How do we do it?  We’re domestic.  Our brushmaker is located in the same building as we are.  When the value of the dollar goes down, we don’t see the same effects as overseas suppliers do.  We choose to keep our overhead low and make our impressions with our product rather than our curb appeal.

We are also shipping fast.  Lead times are 10 days or less.

Make sure you’re giving your customers the best product, the best price, and the fastest service possible.  If you need sanding brushes, please give us a call or send an email.  We will be happy to quote brushes for almost any head, including Flex-Trim™ heads, straight Slipcon heads and QuickWood™ heads.  You’ll see the difference in your bottom line – guaranteed.

Voicemail issues

AT&T is having problems with the voicemail on our main phone number. In the meantime, if you leave a voicemail and do not receive a response within 24 hours, please send us an email. You can do so through our Contact Page, or directly at info (at) master-sand (dot) com.

We apologize for any inconvenience. AT&T has assured us they’re working to solve the problem.

Changes to trim length lineup

Effective immediately, we will no longer stock raw materials in 70 mm trim length (height). 70 mm is by far our least popular height, and we anticipate few inconveniences with this change. Instead, we will stock 65 mm height to better serve our customers with QuickWood™ machinery.

70 mm height will remain available by special order; however, these special orders will be subject to lead times as available, and are not guaranteed to ship in 10 days or less.

As a reminder, our stock brush heights are now:

  • 30 mm
  • 35 mm
  • 40 mm
  • 45 mm
  • 55 mm
  • 65 mm

Please get in touch with us if you have any questions or concerns about this change.

Thanks for your business.
