Not necessarily so anymore.  I still like to use Scotch Brite to be safe, but most manufactures now say that sandpaper is safe.  I'm not sure if Brunswick even persuades you to use Trizact on their particles anymore.

On Edit:  Here's a link to recent discussion about what the some of the manufacturers recommend to resurface their equipment.  Make sure your preferences are set to at least 14 days to see all the replies.

if you want the ORIGINAL, OUT OF THE BOX condition, have your pro shop resurface the ball as much as needed, perhaps all the way down to the 35 micron trizact pad. then use the smoother grits of trizact and finally finish the ball off with the white, cerium oxide pad.
