Is it true that sterated sand paper and water base finishes don't mix?
I don't understand the question.
I don't use water base paint so I don't know
Can't answer as I never use water based finishes. Great for oil based though.
Better than the imports.

The longest lasting sandpaper I've used
I'm so happy to find this sandpaper available through Jamestown Distributors. It is, by far the best sandpaper I have ever used. I first tried it when it was carried in one of the 'big box' stores near me. They no longer carry Norton 3X and the brand they do carry now doesn't measure up. It doesn't last as long and all the different grits are the same color. Norton's use of different colors makes it easier to grab the right grit every time.

Great for varnish -- low clogging
I use this stuff (220 WT) for sanding between coats when varnishing, and for removing varnish when I need to re-do a piece completely. For removal (using 100 WT or so), it's great. Other papers clog up with the sanded varnish, but the 3X, used on a random-orbit sander or by hand, seems to last forever without clogging.
Good product. Good value.
I use 3X 400 grit to do final wet sanding on the 2nd or 3rd coat of polyurethane finish on inside of my kitchen cabinets. This creates a Super smooth glossy finish and easy to maintain.
