Today’s workplaces need solutions to reduce dust exposure that can affect the health of employees. Mirka has been at the forefront of solving the sanding dust issue since the introduction of Abranet in 2001.

Abranet abrasives attach to drywall sanders, sanding tools, and backing pads to allow dust to be extracted away from the sanding surface and contained in Mirka’s HEPA dust extractors. The benefits of dust-free sanding are not only improved health and reduced risks, but also better bottom-line results of your work.

Made to Make Sanding Better

Take your work to a new level - top quality that leaves you with peace of mind, not a dusty health hazard. It’s been proven that the most dangerous dust particles are too small to see. Mirka’s net abrasive solution is 99.97% effective at removing dust particles that are smaller than 0.3 cm in size.

Businesses thrive when employees are happy and healthy, and when companies truly care about safety and efficiency.

A unique sanding concept

20 Years of Dust-Free Sanding With Mirka Abranet®

Thanks to its net structure, the Abranet abrasive is all mesh and all about dust removal, so you can improve your work and workplace.

What Is Abranet and How Is It Different?

Abranet is highly resistant to dust, which helps ensure optimal usage for all types of sanding work. When combined with our ergonomic and efficient power tools and dust extractors, you’re guaranteed a dust-free surface, every time. Abranet is multifunctional, perfect for sanding fillers, primers, topcoats, composite materials, and a wide range of other materials for industrial applications. 

When sanding, you can bet there will be dust, and this is something to take seriously. Dealing with dust can be expensive, time-consuming, and dangerous.  By using on-tool dust extraction, dust can be safely removed from the working surface without it ending up in the air, on the floor, on your skin, and in your lungs.

Is Dust Hazardous?

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. This 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.

The Best Dust Extraction on the Market

Abranet clings to your Grip-attaching backing pad, and its thousands of holes provide the best dust extraction on the market. The maximum distance from each sanding particle to the closest dust extraction hole is less than 2/10ths of an inch.

Cleanup after sanding is a breeze. Our net abrasives are perfectly made for highly efficient dust removal with our dust extractors.

Trust Mirka with this important part of your work. We believe in providing the best, for the best.

Many variants, many applications, many tasks

Abranet® - The Solution to Your Dust Problem

Abranet is a unique abrasive that differs from standard sandpaper - it features a polyamide net structure instead of a conventional solid paper backing. Abranet is highly resistant to dust pilling and clogging, ensuring optimal results.

Each grit delivers excellent results, from the original Abranet to its many variations. The abrasives are best combined with Mirka’s efficient and ergonomic power tools and dust extractors.

Abranet’s open net structure ensures that a dust particle is never more than 2/10ths of an inch from a dust extraction hole. With on-tool dust extraction from virtually the entire abrasive surface, sanding grains retain their cutting power and the resulting dust is safely removed.
