Mirka reaches for the stars with Galaxy

Mirka has announced that the expansion of its innovative abrasive line-up is continuing this month with the addition of Galaxy.

This new multi-purpose, film-backed abrasive has been designed to stay sharp from the first cut to the last, whilst also providing the user with dust-free sanding, efficient performance, and a high-quality consistent finish.

Galaxy is the first abrasive to use Mirka’s Multifit hole configuration. The result of extensive research from the development team in Finland, this technology utilises optimal hole placement to allow the largest amount of dust extraction without sacrificing sanding performance. The alternating hole sections and grip areas are designed to channel the dust away from the sanding process which, combined with Galaxy’s special coating, helps eradicate clogging. Multifit also supports full extraction on any type of machine or block with no need to waste time aligning the holes.

Galaxy is the ideal abrasive for sanding both soft and hard materials as well as various substrates that are prevalent across the automotive, marine production and wood sectors. The specially mixed blue ceramic grains have been engineered to form abrasive edges which break down during the sanding process and present fresh grain; this allows Galaxy to cut quickly and efficiently from edge to edge, which further increases the lifespan of the abrasive and reduces sanding time. The cut is so clean that scratch patterns in finer grits are especially easy to polish out and there are no loose grains left behind in the substrate.

Pete Sartain, national sales manager Industrial, Mirka UK, said: “We are constantly evolving our abrasive line-up and are very excited to be adding Galaxy to it. We believe this abrasive’s new technology will help our customers increase their productivity, while also opening up new revenue streams within their business.”
