Peeling off adhesive sanding disks Warming adhesive sanding disks will allow you to peel the backing off to make placing them on your sander much easier.

I prefer to use pressure-sensitive adhesive (PSA) backed disks on my random-orbit sanders, but peeling off the old, stuck-on paper can be a real chore. Here’s the easy way to do it: warm it briefly with a heat gun, and the paper will peel right off without leaving residue on the pad. Sure beats using solvents or a scraper to get the paper off!
