German term or phrase: Schleifblüte
Nun braucht man zum ersten Mal etwas Ausrüstung aus dem Profi-Lackierbereich. '• Es handelt sich dabei um sogenannte Schleifblüten und einen Gummi-Schleif-i klotz für deren Verarbeitung. Schleifblüten sind kleine blütenförmige, selbstklebende Schleifpapiere der Körnung 2000. Hiermit überschleift man leicht die gespachtelte Schadenstelle. Dies lediglich um sicherzuge­hen, dass die Umgebung sauber ist und keine Spachtelränder überstehen.

emery cloth
Explanation:
Basically, sand paper is for wood and emery cloth for metal. However, when finishing the area that has been repaired with `plastic metal´ it is usually smoothed with an abrasive soaked in water - to help reduce the incidence of scratch marks. Sandpaper tends to disintegrate in water, emery cloth doesn`t.

  -> Emery cloth is also graded, from very coarse to exceedingly fine. A water-resistant sticky backing - Null Problemo these days! It can also be trimmed to shape, and purchased as such.
