Mirka dust-free sanding

Tenaru, distributor of professional coatings and accessories, continues to expand its portfolio of brands with the addition of premium brand Mirka to its offering.

A world leader in abrasives technology and product innovation, Mirka provides dust-free sanding systems. Based in Finland, the global brand develops and manufactures advanced sanding and polishing machines, providing outstanding ergonomic and functional benefits to users. These innovatively designed tools combined with a range of effective, high quality accessories, give Mirka’s customers unmatched access to a complete sanding solution to meet their individual needs.

Mirka’s dust-free solutions are achievable through its innovative Abranet, a plastic-like net with thousands of holes providing phenomenal dust extraction. Constructed with a dense network of polyamide fabric threads onto which the abrasive grit is bonded, this open weave net structure means no dust particle is more than 0.5mm away from a dust extraction hole.

The use of Abranet also eliminates any clogging or dust build-up between the sanding disc and surface, providing a smoother finish more quickly and long-lasting sanding capacity.

Designed to be connected to a commercial vacuum cleaner such as the Mirka Dust Extractor, sanding with Abranet produces 6900 times less dust compared to sanding with traditional paper abrasives, and Abranet can last up to five times longer.

Brian Hamilton, managing director of Tenaru commented: “Mirka’s products are not only unique but very high quality. Tenaru is excited to be bringing change to the industry and providing professionals with new solutions to a more efficient and healthier work space.

“The addition of Mirka is a natural fit to our portfolio of premium coatings and accessories, further positioning Tenaru as a complete system for professional painting, building and renovation needs.”

The Mirka range from Tenaru will include a selection of abrasives, Mirka® DEROS electric sander, Miro 955® wall sander, Professional Sanding Kit and dust extractors.
