Mirka’s innovative NET sanding concept is unlike any other. The patented construction consists of a dense network of fabric threads onto which the abrasive grit is bonded. This open weave, net structure means that no dust particle is more than 0.5mm from a dust extraction hole.
Mirka net products eliminate the frustrating problem of dust clogging the abrasive and creating pills which cause defects in the sanding surface. Therefore, the net product retains its original aggressive sanding performance, longer resulting in fewer abrasives being needed for a given job. Since dust is continuously being sucked away, it’s always possible to see exactly what is happening at the sanding surface. This gives the user greater control over the job and avoids problems such as over sanding.
The Growing Net Family
One of the many advantages of net sanding is that product based on "net" technology usually has a longer lifespan than traditional abrasives.
Users of these abrasive sanding solutions know this translates into clever savings, in other words, better profitability and competitiveness.
Innovative Net Technology
Mirka was the first abrasives company in the world to develop a dust-free sanding system. Since it’s release, Abranet has won many product innovation awards and been a best-seller across the globe. Tests have shown that using Abranet is virtually dust-free, releasing only a minuscule amount of dust when compared traditional abrasives with dust extraction.
Abranet maintains its aggressive properties over the entire surface, and the removal of dust particles eliminates loading and pilling problems. With this, sanding becomes more consistent and efficient, while extending the lifespan of the abrasive.
This is why the use of Abranet has spread across various industries and Mirka continues to introduce new products to the “NET” family. At the same time, Mirka is working hard to continue to innovate and expand it's range with new products and solutions in order for you to take full advantage of the most advanced sanding system.
