Mirka Microstar Film-Backed Grip Discs
Mirka Microstar sandpaper has several of the highest grits that generate slicker surfaces compared to other forms. It’s a general purpose sandpaper that’s most often used in the automotive industry. Designed for mattening and paint rectification, it’s the ideal abrasive for clear and top-coat applications. Paint rectification is the process of restoring paintwork of a vehicle which eliminates imperfections on a car’s surface. For example, if a car has scratches, swirl marks or buffer trails, Microstar is the best option.
Only intended for dry sanding, Mirka Microstar solutions support industries such as:
- Wood Processing
- Vehicle Manufacturing
- Marine Industry
- Composites Processing
- Automotive Refinishing
Specifications of Microstar Sandpaper
With a unique stearate layer as well as a smooth film backing, it offers a high-quality finish. Mirka products last long-term, and unlike traditional discs, Microstars don’t clog. The abrasive creates a fine scratch pattern that’s simple to polish out if needed. We recommend using a Microstar disc with an interface pad of 5mm for perfect results.
The white-colored film has low volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and resin bonding, too. Resin bonding is where dried aggregates scatter onto a coating of resin. Professionals apply the resin to the base and then place the aggregate material over the top before it settles.
Microstar discs have an aluminum oxide grain, semi-open coat and a polyester film backing that leave a consistent finish on your project’s surface. When you invest in Mirka sandpaper, you can trust it will cut quickly and remove various finishes via polishing.
If you are looking to remove runs, excess orange peel from finishes and dust nibs before buffing or repainting, Microstar is your solution! Using the abrasive results in an even scratch pattern, and you can use it on materials like hardwood, paint sanding and soft and resinous wood along with veneer, solid surfaces, lacquers and MDF and HDF.
