A new robust abrasive designed to cut faster and more efficiently while repelling dust is being launched by Mirka UK in September.  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.


Craig Daycock, managing director of Mirka UK, says, “Our customers want a user-friendly product that allows them to complete a job in the fastest possible time, while providing an efficient overall process. Iridium meets these demands with ease, while moving up a gear to take abrasive design, development and technology to the next level.”
