Solutions for Automotive Body in White

An automotive body-in-white requires the best processes and solutions before any electrocoating, primer or paint is applied. Its metal and composite surfaces, from sheetmetal to seams and hard-to-reach areas, must be conditioned, sanded and grinded to reach the best possible quality in the finished vehicle.

Choose the correct abrasives and tools for an efficient working process on a body-in-white.

Defect-free perfection under the layers of paint

E-Coat and Primer Quality Control

Electro-coating, also called the e-coat, provides rust protection. As the vehicle is dipped completely in the e-coat application process, it is the only fully covering layer. The primer layer is only applied on visible surfaces.

For e-coat and primer quality control, choose from our wide range of abrasives, tools and accessories. The unique Mirka dust-free solution, consisting of net abrasives and power tools, is a superior choice.
