Dust-free Sanding Solutions

For improved environment, efficiency and business

Explore the benefits of our pioneering sanding solutions and see how a healthy working environment, improved efficiency and a high-quality finish improve your business.

Mirka’s journey in dust-free sanding started over 20 years ago. Our revolutionary net abrasive, the Mirka Abranet® was the start of a new dust-free philosophy that expanded to cover new abrasives and power tools, all for one purpose: to make sanding better.

The Benefits of Dust-free Sanding

The benefits of Mirka sanding solutions have a direct impact on:

  • Improved health – by reducing exposure to harmful sanding dust
  • Improved bottom-line results – by saving time and money

Dust facts

The most dangerous types of dust are the ones with small particles. They are called PM2.5 and can be inhaled deep into the lungs. Mirka's dust-free solutions are 97.97% effective at removing particles smaller than 0.3µm in size.*

Developed more than 20-years ago, Mirka Abranet® features a net structure instead of a conventional paper backing. This results in extremely efficient on-tool dust removal that improves both the work quality and the working environment. The Abranet product family has expanded to cover many different areas of sanding. Read more about our net abrasives and dust-free solutions in this brochure.

Business Benefits from Dust-free Sanding

Mirka dust-free efficiency guide

Removing dust is one of the best choices for making your workplace more efficient. A dust-free environment reduces clean-up time—meaning fewer hours for you and your team, providing you more time on the refinishing itself. 

Less mess, less stress

Eliminating dust can be tedious. Not only does working with Mirka dust-free systems leave your workplace cleaner, but it also makes sanding more efficient.

Preventing Dust: Q & A

How can I sand without getting dust everywhere?

Sanding naturally creates dust, and this is something Mirka takes seriously. By using on-tool dust extraction, dust can be safely removed from the working surface without it ending up in the air, on your skin, or your lungs. Mirka dust extractors deposit the dust safely in an easily emptied bag.

Why is it important to use dust extraction instead of cleaning the surface often?

By extracting dust while sanding, particles big and small are removed from the working surface and drastically minimize the invisible dust that can stay airborne for longer periods of time and subsequently build-up in the lungs.

Is all dust the same?

No, there are differences between types of dust. The most dangerous dust is the so-called invisible dust that can pass easily into the lungs and bloodstream, where they can increase a person's risk of serious disease. The smallest and most common form of dust has already been in the air long before it settles on surfaces.

Paint residue can be highly toxic and dust from hardwood is extremely harmful if inhaled for long periods of time.

This is why, even though we created the best abrasive for a dust extraction tool, we still recommend wearing protective gear.

Do dust-free tools make protective gear unnecessary?

Even though Mirka’s dust-free solution removes almost all dust from the air, protective gear should be used to protect your health. Please refer to instructions provided by your local authorities.

Are all sand papers compatible with dust-free power tools and extractors?

Yes and no. Compatible sanding papers are available, but to get the highest level of dust-free performance, net abrasives must be used.

Is dust-free equipment maintenance-free? 

All equipment requires maintenance. To maintain the highest level of dust-free performance, filters, dust bags and abrasives should be replaced regularly. In addition, we do recommend regular cleaning of your sander.
