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 every type of sanding work. When combined with our ergonomic and efficient power tools and dust extractors, you’re guaranteed a dust-free surface, everytime. The Abranet is multifunctional, developed for sanding fillers, primers, lacquers, composite materials and a wide range of other materials for industrial application use. 

When sanding, you can guarantee there will be dust around, and this is something we take very seriously because we know how expensive, time-consuming, and dangerous dust can be. By using on-tool dust extraction and pad, dust can be safely removed from the working surface without it ending up in the air, on your skin, in your lungs or on furniture.

Is Dust Hazardous?

The most dangerous dust is so-called invisible dust that can stay airborne for a long time, building up in the lungs. It has already been in the air long before it settles down on the 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.

Abranet® - Your Solution to the Dust Problem

Abranet is an abrasive that is unique from standard sand paper: it features a net structure instead of a conventional paper backing. Abranet is highly resistant to dust pilling and clogging, ensuring optimal usage for every abrasive.

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 polyamide fabric net structure ensures a sanding particle is never more than 0.5 mm from a dust extraction hole. With on-tool dust extraction from virtually the entire abrasive surface, sanding grains are able to retain their cutting power and the resulting dust is safely removed.
