Mirka UK is launching its new Gold Max abrasive line-up specifically for long-, narrow- and wide-belt sanders designed for paint and lacquer sanding.  Its stearate coating minimises clogging and pill-forming when the abrasive is in use, leading to increased durability of the product and less down time for the machine.

The abrasive’s blue fired aluminium oxide grains enable it to achieve a high cut rate even on harder paints. Its innovative anti-static E-paper provides the abrasive with added strength and stability to offer efficient sanding and a smooth surface finish whilst the semi-open coating minimises the dust loading on the abrasive so that it can be used on a variety of intermediate and fine sanding applications.

Pete Sartain, national sales manager – industrial of Mirka UK, says: “The launch of the new Gold Max abrasive range expands our portfolio for belt sanders and is part of our continued product development programme ensuring Mirka is at the forefront of abrasive technology.

“The product has been designed and developed by our R&D department at our headquarters in Jeppo, Finland to offer the user a versatile and innovative product which meets the high standards our customers have come to expect from a Mirka abrasive in terms of efficiency, productivity and durability.”
