Sanding With Wide and Narrow Belts

When sanding with a belt, many things must be considered to get the best result and the highest possible efficiency. The choice of sanding grain material, for example, is critical, but other factors such as adjustment of sanding unit, sanding speed selection, and handling are also essential. When you choose a belt from Mirka, you can be confident that you will get the most efficient sanding results without compromising the quality.
