ASTUROMEC HVLP Spray Guns 

We've tried just about every sandpaper out there. When asked by our customers to offer a wider selection of paper, we looked at expanding our 3M offerings, as well as papers from Norton and other suppliers. We finally came to the conclusion that the products offered by Mirka offer the best features for the money.  

Mirka's Bulldog Gold paper is every bit as good as the premium papers from other suppliers and at a modest price. However, their Royal, Abralon and Abranet series are just plain awesome. I've been able to eliminate wet-sanding in my shop when rubbing out finishes using their Royal and Abralon products. When sanding between coats, you can chuck a piece of 600 or 800 in your random orbit and sand finishes without cutting through. The premium anti-loading treatment allows you to clean debris easily from these discs and keep on using them.  

SPECIAL - Homestead has partial boxes and sleeves of some of the Mirka abrasive products that are on sale at our new Ebay store  & on our closeout page  here.

Available in boxes or sleeves of 50 except where noted.
All Mirka products are "P" graded.

SANDPAPER (Sheets)

GOLDFLEX SHEETS 9" x 11"  - These premium sheets have a unique flexible backing which allows you to literally wad up the paper in a ball and it will hold its shape (see right). This feature allows you to sand intricate profiles easily. It also excels for flat surfaces and wraps easily around a cork sanding block.  It's fast cutting and long-wearing with it's aluminum oxide grit and heavier B, C and D weight backing (most papers above 100 use an A weight paper). It's stearated, but does not pose problems with either our General, Target and other water base finishes. Use the Goldflex for bare wood or between coat sanding to produce a very fine, consistent scratch pattern.

WATERPROOF SHEETS  

WATERPROOF SHEETS - (Wet-dry) sheets are the best choice for final sanding and rub out of fine finishes. The silicon carbide/aluminum oxide grit is exceptionally long lasting and can be used with either water or solvent lubricants. Their unique bonding allows the sheet to be folded and not crack. Can also be used on metal and are perfect for sharpening chisels and planes.

SANDPAPER (Discs)  

BULLDOG GOLD DISCS  - These discs come on a B weight backing, giving the disc better edge wear and wearability. The stearated aluminum oxide grit provides a fast, uniform cut. We stock these discs in 5 hole and 8 hole in the 5" size and 6 hole for the 6" size. This will cover the most popular sanders on the market. These discs can also be used with a standard pad with no punched holes.

MIRLON SYNTHETIC STEEL WOOL  

MIRLON  - Mirka's version of synthetic steel wool. Available in two grits, VF (maroon) and UF (gray), we stock this in two forms, the standard 6" x 9" pads, and 4" x 10 meter (around 30 ft.) rolls. The  silicon carbide grit gives a more consistent scratch pattern than the similar 3M product and is close to the effect of 0000 steel wool. It's particularly nice to have the 4" rolls available, which you can cut down and use in a jitterbug sander or an in-line pneumatic sander.  NEW! Mirlon 6" Maroon and Gray Discs can be used on a random orbit sander for fast cutting back of finishes. Or use them with the 5" hand pad below.

ABRALON ABRASIVE PADS  

ABRALON is the hottest product in wood finishing!  It combines the best features of sandpaper and non-woven products, constructed with a abrasive fabric face, foam center and grip backing. The open weave of the abrasive fabric allows water or solvent to flow freely, resulting in both non-clogging and cooling, because the foam retains solvent. This product is silicon carbide so it works well on both wood, finishes, metal and plastic and is especially nice on contoured surface. It cleans up easily in soapy water or mineral spirits. This product was featured in Fine Woodworking #147 and #149. You can purchase individual pads or in boxes of 20. For contoured surfaces use the 6" foam interface pad (see below).

Available in 6" hook and loop pads

 GRITS (P Designation)  - Order single pads or packages of 20.
180, 360, 500, 1000, 2000, 3000 and 4000 grit.

The backup pad replaces the smooth vinyl pad on most random orbit sanders with a hook and loop face. The Abralon can be used with or without the interface pad.

ABRANET ABRASIVE DISC 

ABRANET is undoubtedly one of the most revolutionary abrasive products on the market. If your sander has a vacuum assist, you can sand absolutely dust free! The Abranet disc is a see-through mesh (see photo right) so it can be used with any multi-hole grip pad. You get improved dust extraction, elimination of pilling (corning) and a better finish all -around. This is the best product for topcoat sanding I've used. This product is aluminum oxide bonded to a fabric mesh (see below) so it works well on both wood, finishes, metal and plastic and is especially nice on contoured surfaces with a 5" interface pad (see below).

 

Available in 5" hook and loop discs
