Mirka Handy Sanding Block. Handy Indeed.

Suck it up, Painters!

Sometimes all it takes is color to make things handy but Mirka did not stop there. All-new Handy by Mirka is a masterpiece disguised in simplicity. The extractor-ready sanding block has a soft-grip ergonomic handle which allows more control while sanding. With 55 dust extraction holes spanning a block of  3 x 9 inches (80x230mm) paired with Mikra Abranet abrasives—tethered to a dust extractor—you too can sand virtually dust-free.


MIRKA CEROS 550CV 5 inch Sander

Compact Electric Random Orbital Sander by Mirka

We have two sanders and dust extractors for your Review, the 5 inch (125mm) Mirka CEROS 550CV is one of them paired with the Mirka 912 Dust Extractor. The 5″ CEROS weighs just over 2 lbs, that is half the weight of the FESTOOL RO 125 FEQ in a 5″ diameter sander. Find out why we selected the CEROS as one of the two sanders for review.

Sand more–sweat less

Our top product line-up and systems change rapidly. Lets face it, if you want to be efficient—start where it impacts us the most, prep. Mirka’s contoured hook and loop hand block paired with Abranet abrasives replaces flexible sanding blocks for good. The hand block is more flexible if you want it to be vs those 1-inch thick block sponges or it can be just as firm. The big difference is how effortless Abranet tears through whatever you put it to.

MIRKA Abranet Eco Sanding Abrasives

You deserve to take it easy—and you will

Abranet® is a revolutionary new sanding material for dust-free sanding.

This unique patented sanding material contains thousands of small holes, making it possible to effectively vacuum away dust and other particles without clogging the disc surface. The result is seen as a very uniform sanding pattern and a perfectly smooth surface. Since the amount of airborne dust has been minimized, the work environment is remarkably improved.
