Automotive Paint Removal

Removing paint from car wheel arch

Removing Paint from Automotive Surfaces

When performing collision repair and automotive refinishing, removing paint can be one of the most demanding jobs for the abrasive of choice. To be able to proceed quickly through the paint removal process, the abrasive must not only perform fast but also consistently, leaving a surface that's ready for the next step.

Mirka abrasives and power tools are designed to make work effortless and for the process to be as efficient as possible.

Dust-Free paint removal

Efficient dust extraction with groundbreaking abrasives

A dust-free workplace is one of the most important ways of reducing the risk of occupational disease. Dust is a natural by-product of sanding, but it doesn't belong in the workplace air or in your lungs - it belongs in the dust extractor bag, where it can be safely disposed of.

Abrasives for Paint Removal

Mirka abrasives are well suited for removing paint in collision repair and refinishing processes.

Our newest abrasive is the high-technology Mirka Galaxy, which is engineered for a fast cut and a long life, making paint removal easy. Galaxy combines self-sharpening grains with superb edge wear resistance and anti-clogging properties.

Galaxy is available with Multifit universal hole patterns which allow it to be used on any tool and backing pad for dust-free sanding.

In addition to Galaxy, we recommend Mirka's Abranet line of abrasives. Abranet is especially efficient in dust-free sanding, as the entire abrasive is formed out of net, meaning its entire surface is engineered for dust extraction. Abranet abrasives are also easy to clean from any accumulated paint dust and filler dust residue to keep abrasive waste to a minimum.

Sanding small areas with Mirka® DEROS 3"

Sanding Small Areas 

For sanding hard to reach areas, such as door jambs and for sanding very curved and contoured surfaces such as bumpers and other plastic parts, we have designed the Mirka® DEROS 3" random orbital sander. With its smaller pad, it works perfectly on areas where bigger sanders are too large, providing a smooth sanding result without dust. 

When sanding spot welds, panel seams and underbody parts in body shop work, panel beating and collision repair, vehicle manufacturing or restoration, we recommend the Mirka® PBS Pneumatic Belt Sander that is best paired with Mirka’s narrow file belts. The Mirka PBS 10NV and Mirka PBS 13NV have been designed to be comfortable to hold even in difficult working positions, with the belt change and speed setting made especially easy.
