Mirka in short


General press release about KWH Mirka Ltd.

KWH Mirka Ltd is part of the KWH Group and of one the world’s largest abrasive manufacturers. Through its innovative research and development program, Mirka has become a specialist in flexible abrasives, as well as revolutionary, patented abrasives which allow customers to enjoy a truly dust-free surface finishing process.

Mirka has invested heavily in product development and the company has expanded from a leading abrasive maker into a developer and manufacturer of complete sanding systems.

These innovations are further backed by the creation of ground-breaking new coatings production processes such as Progressive Bond™, which offers good flexibility and edge wear, and Total Coating™ Technology, which has made it possible to produce abrasives that are thinner while offering more aggressive performance.
