Mirka® Leros-S. Reach Closer.
The Mirka® LEROS-S features the well-known abilities of the LEROS, but in a shorter, even more easily handled length. That makes it perfect for sanding larger areas faster, such as on yachts and boats. The LEROS-S has two dedicated grip points for full control.
Thanks to its lightness, balance and easy manoeuvrability, the LEROS-S makes it possible to sand large areas faster and easier. The large sanding pad with its 5mm orbit works especially well in levelling filler.
It features a highly flexible sanding head to make sanding easier and more ergonomic. A better working position makes sanding more effortless and improves the end result as well as productivity.
For effective sanding of hulls
Lightweight and Ergonomic
The new Mirka Long File Boards make a difference in hand sanding in marine production. They are a special lightweight construction, complete with an ergonomic grip handle, making sanding hulls faster and more comfortable.
Sanding large surfaces such as the hulls of boats and yachts can be straining and cumbersome, and the Long File Boards have been created to make it efficient and effortless instead.

A better choice for you and the environment
All polishes that Mirka produces are water-based and produced in Finland. There are many benefits of choosing a water-based polishing compound.
- Effective permanent removal of scratches - Water-based compounds remove scratches permanently. Solvent-based compounds can lose gloss after cleaning the surface with a degreaser and in some cases, they may only temporarily hide the scratches.
- Safer for the operator - No hazardous chemicals
- Sustainable - Water-based polishes are better for the environment and do not contain benzene or similar hazardous chemicals.
Solvent-based polishes may be effective in the short run, but they are more damaging and harmful.
