Optimized Automotive Repair Process

Sanding car with Mirka OSP

Applying the Mirka OSP System

Mirka OSP is a streamlined surface finishing process that reduces the amount of required time and abrasives. OSP or Optimized Surface Preparation is engineered to simplify the sanding process for your benefit.

Reaching a smooth workflow in the body shop requires a standardized repair process. With OSP, the correct accomplished repairs are performed in time, which also has a great effect on customer satisfaction. Less waste, fewer reworks, better sanding, better finish.

OSP Is All About 1-2-3-4

Mirka abrasives that belong in the OSP product range are clearly marked with numbers, making it easy for you to know which disc or strip should be used for each step. Number 1 is used for paint removal, Number 2 for feather edge, Number 3 for preparing the repaired area for primer by reducing scratches and expanding the feather edge and Number 4 for finalising the sanding.
