Emery cloth is an abrasive cloth closely related to sandpaper. It is made like sandpaper, but the abrasive cutting minerals are affixed to cloth instead of paper.

The cutting minerals used in Emery cloth consist of metallic granules that can stand up to the toughest jobs. Emery cloth has many industrial uses and is mostly used for metal, lubricated, and wet sanding. One important thing to note is that Emery cloth is not typically used in woodworking.
