A new improved backing paper with better sanding characteristics is being introduced by Mirka to its Jepuflex Plus and Avomax Plus abrasives.

The backing is an improved paper with better belt sanding characteristics including less deformation of product, better belt geometry, a more consistent sanding medium for a better surface finish, a higher resistance to heat and humidity problems, improved belt sanding characteristics – increased anti-static properties – as well as greater resistance to clogging and extended belt life

Pete Sartain, national sales manager – industrial of Mirka UK, says: “Customers can expect to benefit from the improvement from May 2017 with a smooth transition to the upgraded paper. The new backing is designed to deliver even greater product stability as well as heat and humidity resistance. This combined improvement gives longer life and a superior surface that will benefit all our customers.”
