Mirka’s innovation sails smoothly into Southampton Boat Show

2019-09-13

Mirka UK will be focusing on innovation at the 2019 Southampton Boat Show on stand J311 with the launch of its new Polarshine® 45 polishing compound - the latest addition to Mirka’s Polarshine product portfolio. 

Polarshine® 45 has been designed and developed by Mirka’s R&D department in Jeppo, Finland to meet the marine sector’s need for a coarser and faster compound. It is suitable for hard surfaces and coatings, and provides a deep gloss finish, which enables boat builders and yards to offer a high-quality end product in a shorter time to the customer.

Also on display will be the Novastar™ abrasives range. Its multi-hole pattern and precision coating ensures that the dust produced is repelled to avoid clogging, while offering users an aggressive initial cut, especially with coarse grits (80-100).  In addition, it is wear-resistant for increased durability and its flexible backing means that it does not lose grain, even when folded.

 Supplementing the new polishing compound and abrasives on display will be a selection of Mirka’s tools headlined by the Mirka® DEOS sander, the only electric orbital sander on the market that has been optimised for net abrasives by incorporating more than 45 holes in the pad. In addition, its ergonomic design enables users to get closer to the surface, easily accessing hard to reach areas and delivering a flawless smooth finish. Other sanders on display will include the Mirka® DEROS and its cordless sanders, the Mirka® AOS-B 130NV and Mirka® AROS-B 150NV.  

Pete Sartain, national sales manager industrial for Mirka UK, says, “The marine sector is a growing opportunity for Mirka, so as a brand we decided to attend the Southampton Boat Show for the first time as part of our strategic plans to increase our market share. We see the show as the perfect platform for our team to debut the new Polarshine 45 polishing compound to engaged visitors that will require this product for projects they are working on. In addition, we will be offering visitors that come by our stand a direct insight into our wide ranging product portfolio and highlighting how the R&D team has developed tools and abrasives that meet their needs and requirements, while providing a dust-free environment to work in.”
