Abranet abrasives are now available as 1 metre Roundy Dust-Free Hand Block or 10 metre rolls. These 75mm wide, 1m long abrasive rolls are hook and loop backed and offer ultimate flexibility for use with hand sanding blocks, mouse sanders, random orbital sanders, detail sanders or rectangular-padded sanding machines. Simply trace the shape of your original abrasive, cut out and enjoy the benefits of Abranet with any sander.
Abranet is an aluminium oxide abrasive bonded to a dense polyamide mesh. The result is an abrasive that doesn’t require cut-outs for dust extraction – particles are only ever 0.5mm from an extraction point and can be removed as soon as they are created.
Because waste particles are extracted near-instantaneously, the abrasive is able to make complete and even contact with the work surface. This allows Abranet to work quicker than other abrasives, avoiding gouges caused by trapped waste material. Since clogging and pilling are greatly reduced compared to non-mesh based abrasives, Abranet has a greatly extended lifespan. Because Abranet can be used over and over, it is an economical alternative to burning through large quantities of inferior abrasive.
