I once worked near a boat building/repair shop that had a very powerful disc sander about 30" diameter and they always used marine non skid deck tread instead of sand paper. The type that looks like sand paper but it is much tougher and is also self sticking. It is sold in big rolls or cut to length in most boat shops. No choice of grit size but fairly hogs away timber when you need it to. Great for any size disc sander and seems to last forever.
