Mirka UK is bringing the next generation of abrasives to market in September with the launch of Novastar. This new multi-hole abrasive has been developed with durability, versatility, productivity and efficiency at the forefront of the design process, enabling users to handle the most demanding of sanding applications, while still being able to provide a consistent scratch pattern.

Novastar, like most of Mirka’s abrasives, provides the user with efficient dust extraction the brand is synonymous for. This process is ably assisted by its new multi-hole pattern and precision coating, ensuring that the dust produced is repelled, avoiding clogging.

Suitable for use on hard surfaces and lacquers, where a robust film abrasive is required, it provides an aggressive initial cut especially with coarse grits (80-100) and is P graded from 240-600 to provide a finer finish. It is wear resistant for increased durability and its flexible backing means that it does not lose grain, even when folded.

Craig Daycock, managing director of Mirka UK, says, “The markets our abrasives are used in are rapidly evolving, so we have to remain at the forefront of innovation to meet the needs and requirements of our customers. We believe the work the R&D team has put in to developing Novastar will enable users to tackle previously demanding tasks with ease and will surpass customer expectations.”
