As with any product bearing the Mirka name, you can feel confident in receiving superior performance and maximum longevity in return for your abrasive equipment dollar. You have the freedom to choose between hook and loop or no-hole pressure-sensitive adhesive pads.
Hook and Loop vs. Pressure Sensitive Adhesive Pads
Hook and loop adhesives have a backing similar to Velcro material that you can add and remove with ease. The hooks and loops help attach the sandpaper to your machine. If you choose to implement PSA pads, you won’t have to mount it to your sander. Instead, as the name suggests, you can to apply pressure for it to stick to the disc of your machine. It’s simple to place as well as remove.
Mirka manufactures the sandpaper using modern molded polymers and the highest quality of construction. Available in more than 25 hole configurations, densities, grips, shapes and sizes, Mirka backing pads are balanced to provide an ultimate finish and eliminate vibration.
Made of polyurethane that has medium density, the solution is firm enough to level substrates but also conforms to small surface contours whether you’re woodworking on the jobsite or finishing metal. The products also have durable nylon hooks for grip-style abrasives.
