Mirka's Performance and versatility makes prep work easier and more efficient for decorators

31 October 2022

Focusing on performance and versatility, Mirka UK will be showcasing a selection of tools, which will be headlined by the Mirka® LEROS and Mirka® LEROS-S, at the P&D Show 2022 on stands 67 and 88. The tools on display highlight that Mirka’s growing product portfolio continues to put the user experience first, as they have been designed and developed from the ground up to handle the demands of decorators and the challenging surfaces they face. 

The Mirka® LEROS, which weighs in at less than 3.5kg, has a lightweight ergonomic design that ensures the tool is balanced, no matter the angle at which it is used, and leads to less strain on the body and back of the user. The tool’s random orbital movement responds precisely to the operator’s movements, so the sanding process is made easier, while the brushless motor technology ensures a constant speed with no loss in efficiency under heavy pressure and load. 

The LEROS showcases its versatility with its dual voltage feature. This makes the tool suitable for use on both residential sites as well as building sites, which use 110v to power the electric tools on site. 

The LEROS-S combines the best-in-class features of the original LEROS in a compact set-up that makes sanding in confined spaces easier. In addition, its two dedicated grip points enable full control of the tool, so it is easy to handle, whether it is being used on a wall or ceiling. 

When the Mirka® LEROS and Mirka® LEROS-S are combined with Mirka’s dust-free net abrasives and suitable dust extraction, they provide the user with virtually dust-free sanding. There are dual suction points for dust removal, so the work environment is cleaner and healthier for both the customer and user. In addition, maintenance of the tool is minimised as there are no carbon brushes to be changed.

The other tools on show are made up of some of Mirka’s most popular models. The ergonomic and innovative Mirka® DEOS Delta, which has an iron shape design that allows users to  access hard to reach areas easily and efficiently. The Mirka DEOS has a low-profile design that allows the user to get closer to the surface and ensures a consistent smooth finish that is the hallmark of Mirka’s tools. 

Complementing the tools will be the versatile Abranet® abrasive range, which can be used for sanding multiple applications including fillers, primers, lacquers and composite materials. It delivers a virtually dust-free work environment when employed with suitable dust extraction. The abrasive’s hard-wearing surface also offers a faster process and prevents the disc from rapid or premature wear, which leads to a lifespan that is 10 to 15 times longer than traditional abrasives.

Chris Proffit, Mirka UK’s business sector manager for construction and decoration, says,

“As a business our R&D team is tirelessly developing tools and abrasives that meet the constantly changing demands of users and what we have on display showcases this. We believe that our tools provide users with the ability to handle any job easily, efficiently and in a dust-free environment. In addition, the show also provides us with the perfect platform from which we can highlight the benefits of dust-free sanding from a health and work perspective to attendees.”
