Sanding accounts for a major portion of work in the shop. The dust produced can lead to bouts with chronic bronchitis, asthma or dermatitis. So you have reason to search for better sanding products.

Mirka Abrasives Inc. has invented “Abranet” – aluminum-oxide grit with resin-over-resin bonding, attached to polyamide fabric backing with a hook-and-loop design. It’s best used with a vacuum setup for dust-free sanding. Simply put – it’s a better sanding product that’s available in discs, sheets or rolls with grits ranging from #P80 to #P800.
