Mirka launches premium long-life antistatic sanding belt

Mirka is introducing Ultimax® Black, a new abrasive for belt sanding with long-life and antistatic properties, suitable for sanding hard materials and hardwood surfaces, reducing material waste.

Combining a thick, high-quality backing paper with a new silicon carbide grain and patented selective coating material, Ultimax® Black delivers a strong, stable performance without breaking, folding or twisting, even in the coarser grits.


The high-technology sanding belt’s surface cavities prevent clogging and reduce the temperature of the sanding process while increasing the surface pressure on each single sanding grain. This helps the abrasive stay sharp for longer, contributing to a higher removal rate and a lower scratch pattern.


Neil Newbrook, Business Sector Manager Wood, Mirka UK, says: “Ultimax® Black delivers exceptional sanding quality from start to finish. Its patented manufacturing technology and antistatic properties take belt sanding to the next level in terms of longevity and sanding performance thanks to its strength and stability, and in doing so, achieving consistent finishing without the need to adjust machine pressure over time.”
