Abrasive material also seen in Society publication (9)


I believe the answer is:


'abrasive material' is the definition.
(sandpaper is a kind of abrasive material)

'also seen in society publication' is the wordplay.
'also' becomes 'and' (both can mean in addition).
'seen in' indicates putting letters inside.
'society' becomes 's' (common abbreviation in names of organisations).
'publication' becomes 'paper' (a paper is a type of publication).
'and' put within 'spaper' is 'SANDPAPER'.

(Other definitions for sandpaper that I've seen before include "Make smoother" , "Material used for smoothing" , "Abrasive substance" , "Smooth" , "Spared pan for the stuff used to prepare surfaces" .)

I've seen this clue in The Times.
