Auto Trade Expo 2018


Mirka are pleased to be exhibiting at the Auto Trade Expo which is being held at Citywest Exhibition Centre on Saturday and Sunday, 20th and 21st of October 2018.

Focusing on high performance and innovation to assist repairers in working efficiently, reducing key to key times and improving their profitability, Mirka UK will be presenting a host of dust-free sanding solutions, innovative tools and new products at the Auto Trade Expo.

Mirka will be showcasing several products  including the new intelligent abrasive Iridium, a new robust abrasive designed to cut faster and more efficiently while repelling dust.  Aimed at bodyshops, workshops and industry, Iridium employs a new precision coating to speed up the sanding process.

Iridium’s new multi-hole design and non-stick coating avoids loading or pilling from the dust that is created when the abrasive is in use, so the grains stay sharper for longer and the dust extraction is faster and more efficient.  

In addition, its blend of ceramic grains allows the initial cut to be more aggressive and longer lasting, while producing a consistent scratch pattern for the lifetime of the abrasive. Available in both discs and strips, Iridium's coarse and fine grits allow the abrasive to work well on both soft and hard surfaces, while its flexible backing also offers excellent grain adhesion and no loss of the grains, even when folded.

Mirka's brand new Mirka DEOS machines will be centre stage at the exhibition.  The Mirka® DEOS gets closer to the surface, easily accessing hard to reach areas and delivers a flawless smooth finish quicker than other sanders. The DEOS is available in two sizes, DEOS 383 CV  70 x198 and DEOS 353 CV 81x 133, making it suitable for use across multiple applications, including sanding prior to using body filler.

The Mirka DEROS, the world’s lightest electric sanding machine in its class, which features a brushless motor combined with patented driving technology, will also be present on the stand. The sander plugs into an ordinary power supply making it easy to move around, and is suitable for multiple sanding operations producing a highly effective smooth finish. It delivers a rapid, efficient, consistently powerful performance comparable to a conventional 500W electric machine, even under heavy load, and is economical to use, reducing energy costs. Its ‘closed construction’ prevents dust from entering the motor, avoiding typical wear and tear damage experienced by electric machines. Mirka DEROS’ low profile delivers good control over the sanding process and its two-hand, ergonomic grip, effective for heavy sanding applications, combined with its low noise and vibration levels, reduces arm fatigue and minimises the risk of Hand Arm Vibration Syndrome.
