Benefits of dust-free sanding

  • Clean & healthy working environment

  • Fast & efficient sanding process

  • Less consumption of abrasives

  • Improved quality of work

Less dust, more money

Dust-free sanding can be a true competitive advantage for your business, as it takes your products to premium level while reducing overall manufacture time and maintenance costs.

Because dust-free sanding is so time saving, you can invest much more time on the finish. This also lets your employees really concentrate on what they know best, instead of wasting valuable time on cleaning up. Combined with a healthier working environment, dust-free sanding can save you considerable costs in finding and training replacement workforce.

Improving end customer satisfaction

Customer satisfaction is your biggest asset as a business. According to the Customer Experience statistics, it can be five times more expensive to find a new customer than to retain current customers.

Happy customers also spread positive word-of-mouth that may turn into new business opportunities. Naturally the factors affecting the customer satisfaction vary between the industries, but there are some more general benefits
that all will be happy with:

  • Healthy working environment

    No airborne or residual dust during or after project to be worried about

  • Multitasking

    Multiple phases of the project can be undertaken in the same room without risk of dust contamination

  • Improved quality

    The quality of work is usually improved since dust is removed before next working phase

  • Faster project turnaround

    Since the cleaning time during and after project decreases, the whole process is faster

Mirka: Tested

for efficiency

When dust is removed from the space between the abrasives and the sanded surface, the abrasive grains are cutting the surface more efficiently.

Improved quality, less rework

A dust-free working environment leads to a higher quality end result and lessens the need for reworking.

A clean working area and dustless tools are more precise to use, making it easier to achieve the desired end result. This means less stress and fewer mistakes for employees.

With no airborne dust, the risk of dust inclusion in paintwork
lessens, for example. This makes it possible for other work to go ahead during the sanding process without the quality of finish becoming compromised.

A dust free environment

As well as being good for your profitability, dust-free solutions also benefit the environment. Due to their clogging-resistant capabilities, the effective sanding lifespan of dust-free abrasives is longer than traditional abrasives.

This means you get more use out of them, depending of the exact working area. Mirka Abranet has even been reported to have the lifespan of 10-15 times longer than traditional abrasives, in sectors where soft materials are sanded.

Other environmental benefits include the need for fewer other consumables as the working process is faster. Water consumption is also smaller due to lesser need for cleaning the working areas.

Abranet: The superior abrasive

Abranet has thousands of holes and the maximum distance from each sanding particle to the closest dust extraction hole is always just 0.5 mm. Since the dust is being continuously sucked away by the extractor, sanding is virtually dust-free.

This contributes to a clean and healthy working environment, reducing the dust load from dangerous particles on lungs while providing many other benefits in the form of efficiency and work motivation.

Keeping the abrasive and sanding surface constantly dust-free also extends the lifespan of the abrasive and prevents problems, such as the formation of so-called dust pills and clogging.

Abranet helps you improve your bottom line

The bottom line is that dust-free sanding is a matter of productivity, profitability and business development, not just another costly investment.
