The benefits of dust-free sanding

Mirka’s journey in dust-free sanding started over 20 years ago. Our revolutionary net abrasive, the Mirka Abranet® was the start of a new dust-free philosophy that expanded to cover new abrasives and power tools, all for one purpose: to make sanding better.

Explore the multiple benefits of our pioneering sanding solutions and see how a healthy working environment, improved efficiency and a high-quality finish improve your business. 

Preventing dust: Good for your staff, great for your business

Employees are your company's most important assets. Mirka sanding solutions reduce exposure to harmful sanding dust. The benefits of dust-free sanding aren't just improved health and reduced risks, but also improved bottom-line results.

Dust facts

The most dangerous types of dust are the ones with small particles. They are called PM2.5 and they can be inhaled deep into the lungs. Mirka's dust-free solutions are 99.97% effective at removing particles smaller than 0.3µm in size.*

Efficiency:Business benefits from dust-free sanding

Removing dust is the best choice for making your workplace more efficient. A dust-free environment reduces time to completion, meaning fewer man-hours for you. Then, you can focus on what is essential: spending more time on the refinishing itself. 

Less mess, less stress

Eliminating dust is often very stressful because you need to spend lots of time getting rid of it completely. Not only does dust-free leave your workplace clean, but it also makes sanding stress-free.

Case Dust-tree: clean air by Abranet

Air pollution is a serious issue in India. To improve the air quality for example, in Delhi, the decrease of emissions is paramount. We can, however, use trees to help our common cause. Local peepal tree (Ficus religious) is capable of catching approximately 27 kilograms of dust every year.

Since our dust-free Abranet solution collects about 2.3 kilograms every day,  together with Give me trees we are going to plant one peepal tree in Delhi for every 500 Abranet sanding disc used monthly. 

First trees are already planted in spring of 2019 and there are more to come!
