Mirka – 3 top products
The Mirka CEROS (Compact Electric Random Orbital Sander) is designed to give you a flawless finish, in less time. Used in combination with Abranet abrasive discs, preparation is not only easier but there is virtually no dust to clean up afterwards. It’s a much less strenuous process and environmentally a cleaner way to sand. Mirka’s CEROS is both robust and lightweight. Its powerful 400 watt motor will tackle the toughest of jobs, and the simple controls allow you to set your sander anywhere between 4,000 and 10,000 rpm. This means you can work faster with better control to produce a perfectly prepared surface.
Abranet sanding discs, strips and rolls are made from a patented, net fabric (not paper) which has thousands of tiny holes. The open weave structure enables dust to be continuously sucked away, so there are no harmful airborne particles and the environment is kept clean. You don’t have the problem of dust settling on surfaces weeks after the job has been completed. Abranet also lasts a lot longer than paper abrasives and the unique net design ensures an even, sanded surface.
Mirka’s latest innovation is the new Handy. The Handy sanding block has an ergonomic two handle soft grip which gives you more control while sanding. The optimized size of 80x230mm is ideal for filler sanding, paint removal, and keying of surfaces prior to painting. The Handy has 55 dust extraction holes and when used with Mirka’s Abranet strips and dust extraction machine, creates an environment which is virtually Dust-Free. The main benefits of this being that the clean-up time is significantly reduced and it is far healthier for you and your customer.
