Mirka 9947 | 3" Abranet Pad Protector • 1/16" tall<br/><br/>The Mirka 9947 3" Abranet Pad Protector is designed to to be used with Abranet and Autonet sanding discs.  The open mesh design employed in Abranet and Autonet products allow the backing plate's Velcro-style hooks to protrude through the mesh. If this occurs, the hooks can degrade quickly, AND cause marring of the surface being sanded!<br/><br/>Avoid this problem by installing a Pad Protector.  This simple device will not only protect the backing plate and surface being sanded, it also increases adhesion of the sanding disc to the backing plate.<br/><br/>Mirka 9133 | 1033 | 9947 | 3" Velcro Interface Pads<br/><br/>This trio of Mirka 3" Interface Pads can improve the performance of any Velcro-backed sanding disc.  The Mirka 1033 and 9133 include a cushiony foam interlayer (sandwiched between layers of hook and loop Velcro), which helps sanding discs to readily conform to complex surfaces. They also help to compensate for inadvertent tilting of the machine during sanding.<br/><br/>The Mirka 9133 and 9947 were originally designed for use with Mirka Abranet and Autonet Sanding Discs, but can be used with other types of disc as well.<br/><br/>Mirka 9133 | 3" Abranet Velcro Interface Pad • 3/16" tall<br/><br/>The Mirka 9133 3" Abranet Interface Pad is designed to to be used with Abranet and Autonet sanding discs.  The open mesh design employed in Abranet and Autonet products allow the backing plate's Velcro-style hooks to protrude through the mesh. If this occurs, the hooks can degrade quickly, AND cause marring of the surface being sanded!<br/><br/>Avoid problems by installing this interface pad (or the Mirka 9947 Pad Protector).  Specialized hooks eliminate the potential for damage to the surface being sanded, and efficiently grab ahold of Abranet and Autonet Net Mesh Discs.<br/><br/>Mirka 1033 | 3" Velcro Interface Pad • 1/2" tall<br/><br/>The Mirka 1033 3" Velcro Interface Pad utilizes low-profile micro hooks, which strongly secure sanding discs into place (even during heavy friction, high RPM sanding).<br/><br/>When sanding using thin or flimsy sanding discs, short hooks ensure a flat and consistent cut, and lessen the potential for "hook marking" of the sanding surface.<br/><br/> Matched low-profile Velcro loops keep the interface pad tightly attached to the backing plate, which minimizes friction-induced heat caused by rapid & repeated shifting of the hooks and loops.<br/><br/>1033 | 1066 | 1066F | 1066SF<br/>  Mirka Velcro Interface Pads<br/><br/>When a sanding disc is mounted directly onto a backing plate, its ability to contour is limited by plate rigidity. Although leveling capability might increase, edge-digging is likely to occur. Full-width utiliztion of the disc becomes difficult when sanding complex surfaces. When an interface pad is installed between the backing plate and disc, contourability increases.<br/><br/>If the machine is tilted off-kilter, the interface pad aids in keeping the full width of the disc in complete contact with the sanding surface. Attempting to sand using a small section of a disc can be difficult; an interface pad can make all the difference.<br/><br/>Mirka 3" Sanding Products<br/>1033 | MR-350 | Q.Silver Sanding Discs<br/><br/>Mirka Q.Silver 3" & 6" Sanding Discs<br/>Mirka Q.Silver Discs can take a lot of abuse, as the resin (adhesive) used to attach its abrasive grains to the disc is very resistant to heat.

Without the Pad Protector, the white hooks of the backing plate would very likely protrude through the disc, resulting in damage to the backing plate and the surface being sanded. Always use a Pad Protector with net mesh discs.<br/><br/>Working on curved or complex shapes? To maximize flexibility of net mesh discs, install a purpose-built Abranet Interface Pad between the backing plate and disc. Abranet Interface Pads feature a low profile piece of foam, which is sandwiched  between the same type of hook and loop material used to make Abranet Pad Protectors.<br/><br/>HP3-VELCRO<br/>3" Dome-Shaped Velcro Hand Sanding Pad.<br/><br/>Shown with the included 3" Foam Velcro Interface Pad.<br/><br/>HP3-VELCRO<br/><br/>3" Dome-Shaped Velcro Hand Sanding Pad.<br/><br/>Left: Shown with a Mirka® Autonet Mesh Fabric Sanding Disc, and a Mirka 9947 Pad Protector.<br/>Right: Shown with a Mirka® 1033 3" Foam Velcro Interface Pad.<br/><br/>HP3-VELCRO<br/>3" Velcro Dome Hand Sanding Pad.<br/><br/>Shown with Mirka 9133 3" Abranet Velcro Interface Pad.<br/><br/>HP3-VELCRO<br/>3" Velcro Dome Hand Sanding Pad.<br/><br/>Shown with Mirka 9133 3" Abranet Velcro Interface Pad, and a 3" Autonet Mesh Fabric Sanding Disc.<br/><br/>

Designed for use with Abranet and Autonet Sanding Discs.

The open mesh design employed in Abranet and Autonet products may allow the hook material of a backing plate to protrude through the mesh. If this occurs, the backing plate hooks will degrade quickly. Even worse, the hook material can cause surface marring! Avoid this problem by installing a Pad Protector. Also available in a 6" version: 9956

This simple device will not only protect the backing plate and surface being sanded, it also increases adhesion of the sanding disc to the backing plate. Since the Pad Protector is only about 1/16" thick, in most cases it will not affect the leveling capability of the disc.

Add a Dome-Style Hand Sanding Pad. This uniquely shaped block makes sanding by hand a breeze to accomplish. Its yellow cushiony material is soft, making it easy to grasp, even when wet. The Velcro face is molded into place (not glued), so pad failure is  unlikely. A soft interface pad is included (interface is not a Mirka product).

Add an interface pad. The time may come when you'll need to sand a sphere-shaped item, a cylinder, or a wickedly-curved fender. To increase cushioning and shapability of net mesh sanding discs, this is the interface pad you'll need. The Mirka 9133 3" Abranet Interface Pad measures 2-7/8" in diameter, and is 3/16" tall. Note that due to its height, this interface pad may lessen sanding disc movement, particularly if paired with small stroke machines. Also available in a 6" version: 9166
