Every painter and stand fitter is familiar with this problem: curves, concavi­ties or recesses in car body parts, contoured walls or furniture are a real challenge when it comes to sanding. During the repair of accident damage or particularly when making special structures for exhibition stands, the necessity of working on concave or convex-shaped sections becomes apparently an inevitable. sia Abrasives can now offer a flexible solution for this shaping task: the adjustable hand sanding block. The base of the hand sanding block can be adjusted by using a setting wheel, and can be either concave, i.e. curved inwards, or convex, i.e. curved outwards. This greatly simplifies shaping and enables the user to work even more ergonomically. The special shape of the hand sanding block, with its enlarged contact surface, provides an ideal distribution of pressure and thus allows good use to be made of the abrasive. This means that it is possible to perform especially delicate work and achieve high material removal rates using little pressure. The sanding surface is 115 x 230 millimeters in size.

Easy to use, minimal dust
Two handles on the top of the hand sanding block allow for highly ergo­nomic and fatigue-free use. Features also include a multi-hole air chamber backing and an extraction port. Connecting a suction hose allows the almost complete removal of dust particles, providing a low-dust working environment and improved work safety. A control valve for the adjustment of the suction pressure as well as a suction hose adapter, are included. The sia hand sanding block is suitable for all standard and multi-hole abrasives as well as for net structure abrasives. This product is now available from specialized dealers or directly through sia Abrasives at a recommended retail price of 80 euros excluding VAT.
