Abranet by Mirka is a revolutionary new sanding material for dust-free sanding. This unique patented material contains thousands of small holes, making it possible to effectively vacuum away dust and other particles without clogging the disc surface. The result is seen in a very uniform sanding pattern and perfectly smooth surface. Since the amount of airborne dust has been minimized, the work environment is remarkably improved. This durable, long lasting, multi-functional material is used both within the automotive and wood industries as well as on composite materials.

Don't even ask the price, just get some and you will find that Abranet discs just work better, last longer and give results that can't be beat. Even the high grits you feel them bite and know they are doing the job and they last a long time.
I use these for woodworking finishing first on the raw wood up to about 320. After applying several layers of finish sanding with 320 in between coats I go up through the grits to 600 and have a finish that really complements the wood. On some projects I use polishing pads that go up to 2000 grit if I am going for the "piano finish". 600 is perfect for an rich satin finish topped off with some quality paste wax.
this is not a review of the Mirka Ceros sander, but that is what I'm using this paper on(not really paper, I guess abrasive disc is the right term). It sands great, lasts a long time, and you don't have to line up any dust collection holes with the pad. I won't be buying any other brand of paper- (there I go again) abrasive disc, I'm sold. I can pull the discs off and change grits, haven't had any trouble with getting used discs to cling to the pad. One thing I did learn from others is to get and use the pad saver- I guess any loose grit gets sucked through the disc and wears on the hooks of the pad, it's cheaper to change the pad saver (I got one in an assortment pack of discs) than to buy a new pad.
How do you know what grits you will want to use on a regular basis? Which grits do you need to buy a quantity of? How can you be sure you will have the right grit for the job? Buy an assortment pack. These discs last a long time, so one disc can be used on many small projects. I found that I use from 80 up to 180 regularly, but I use the extra fine discs only infrequently. If I did auto body work, then it might be the opposite situation. Whatever your use, I'd recommend having an assortment pack on hand also, for those special occasions. These discs work great on the Ceros sander, and the vacuum will keep the disc clean and they will last longer.
