The reason I bought two types was that I decided I needed to make two types of roads. The Sandpaper belts were quite course and once painted would represent dusty track ways in the desert. The dark grey Emery paper, which was much finer grained, would become metaled roads such as the one pictured here on the right.
I cut the emery/sandpaper to approximately 35mm wide which is about the same width as a FoW Small base. In total I have been able to make about 9ft of track way and 8ft of metaled road for less than £5. This will be more than enough for my needs at present but they were so easy to make I can easily add to my road network if needed later.
