Mirka reaches for the stars with Galaxy

The expansion of Mirka’s innovative abrasive line-up continues with the addition of Galaxy. This new multi-purpose, film-backed abrasive has been designed to stay sharp from the first to the last cut, while also providing the user with dust-free sanding, efficient performance, and a high-quality, consistent finish.

Galaxy is the first abrasive to use Mirka’s innovative Multifit™ hole configuration. The result of extensive research from the development team in Finland, this technology utilises optimal hole placement to allow the largest amount of dust extraction without sacrificing sanding performance. The alternating hole sections and grip areas are designed to channel dust away during the sanding process, which, combined with Galaxy’s special coating, helps to eradicate clogging. Multifit™ also supports full extraction on any type of machine or block with no need to waste time aligning the holes.


Galaxy is the ideal abrasive for sanding both soft and hard materials as well as various substrates that are prevalent across the automotive, marine production and wood sectors. The specially mixed blue ceramic grains have been engineered to form abrasive edges, which break down during the sanding process and present fresh grain; this allows Galaxy to cut quickly and efficiently from edge to edge, further increasing the abrasive’s lifespan while reducing sanding time. The resulting cut is so clean that scratch patterns in finer grits are especially easy to polish out and no loose grains are left behind in the substrate.

Pete Sartain, National Sales Manager Industrial for Mirka UK, says: “We’re constantly evolving our abrasive line-up and are very excited to add Galaxy to it. We believe that the technology used by this abrasive will help our customers to increase productivity, while also opening up new revenue streams within their business.”
