Mirka expands abrasives range with Iridium SR

Mirka is expanding its innovative abrasive line-up in January 2022 with the addition of Iridium SR.

This new abrasive has been designed to deliver a consistent, uniform cut and scratch pattern that is fast and easy to polish out, making it ideal for the finest finishing stages of automotive refinishing as well as vehicle manufacturing. In addition, it performs consistently on clearcoat, topcoat and lacquers as well as composite processing.

The abrasive offers excellent consistency and an extremely long lifespan due to its tri-dimensional technology silicon carbide grains. These grains are evenly placed and form new abrasive edges whenever they break down during the sanding process, which prolongs the sharpness of the grain and reduces abrasive wastage. When Iridium SR is combined with Mirka’s cordless tools, the Mirka AOS-B and Mirka AROP-B, it is said to provide the user with unparalleled performance in spot repair work and finishing quality control.

“We are constantly looking to push the boundaries when it comes to abrasive technology and Iridium SR is the next step up,” stated Mirka UK’s national sales manager Industrial, Peter Sartain. “This abrasive’s new technology has been developed for use across multiple vehicle refinish applications and provides the ultimate finish.”

Thermoplastic coatings and composites

Generally, composites, such as glass fibre and carbon fibre, are popular materials among manufacturers because of their light weight and mechanical properties compared to traditional materials, such as steel and aluminium. Composites can also be designed to take advantage of special coatings that help aid their integration into a product while improving functionality. Patrick Loock, segment business owner for products and applications at composite tubes and profiles manufacturer Exel Composites, discusses how composites manufactured with thermoplastic functional coatings can allow more control of properties such as friction, adhesion, and finish.
