Mirka launches two new abrasives families

Mirka launches two new abrasives with state-of-the-art coating technology.

Today we introduce not just one, but two new abrasives families, Mirka Iridium® and Novastar™, worldwide. The new paper and film-backed abrasives are premium products aimed at automotive refinishing, wood and manufacturing industries, including marine and vehicle. Iridium and Novastar are available worldwide starting from September.

According to Stefan Sjöberg, CEO of Mirka Ltd, 2018 is going to be a landmark year for paper and film abrasives:

– Iridium and Novastar are not just an improvement on our earlier products, we’ve really aimed at redefining abrasives manufacturing technology.

Developed in parallel, the abrasives are similar – though not the same.

– They both have a unique dust-repellent surface that doesn’t clog, so the grains stay sharp longer. This is key to the top performance. We’ve done over 300 field tests worldwide at the beginning of the year to verify the customer value and the results were overwhelmingly positive. Speed, efficiency, lifetime and dust extraction are unrivalled, Sjöberg says.
