ATLANTA – Diablo recently introduced an extensive new line of sanding products that will enhance productivity, reduce time and save money: Diablo’s SandNET™ sanding discs and sheets, and Reusable Hand Sanding Blocks. Diablo has reinvented sanding with a solution that outperforms paper. The enhanced line of SandNET reusable sanding discs and sheets delivers up to 10 times longer sanding life span compared to standard coated sandpaper, leading to less product waste and money spent on more materials.

Industry professionals dread sanding for many reasons including the amount of time it takes, materials ripping, clogging and constant replacement of discs, sheets, and blocks. Clogging and pitch-build-up are the main issues faced by industry professionals. When paper sanding products are loaded with build-up, the grit no longer makes contact and the grains no longer “cut” into the material. The lack of life span and low-quality costs professionals time and money.

The SandNET clog-reducing net design dramatically outperforms and extends sanding life up to 10x longer than paper products. A lattice-like design allows sanding fibers to effortlessly pass through the net, and if it begins to load or clog one can simply clean the grit by shaking, vacuuming, or rinsing for continued use. The ability to clean the sanding grit and reuse multiple times shows SandNET is a technologically advanced, superior solution that offers the long life, high quality and a cost-effective range of sanding products.

Diablo’s new Reusable Hand Sanding Blocks address market issues such as inferior abrasive grain and inferior foam that causes product failure or premature structure breakdown. The Hand Sanding Blocks last even longer with the ability to be fitted with SandNET sheets, the most advanced reusable sanding technology. Traditional foam sanding blocks clog/tear and must be thrown away once unusable. The Reusable Hand Sanding Blocks combined with SandNET sheets invigorate the industry by maximizing performance, reducing time and most importantly, saving money.

“Diablo does it again by disrupting the industry with the reinvention of sanding. SandNET takes the most dreaded task of any project, for woodworkers, carpenters, drywallers, painters and other industry workers alike and developed multiple innovative sanding solutions that meaningfully improve and enhance production for all sanding jobs,” said Russell Kohl, President and CEO of Diablo/Freud Tools. “These superior reusable products increase productivity through fewer labor hours and dollars spent completing the job, and fewer discs/sheets/sponges changes results in increased dollar savings. SandNET creates less product waste, which in turn is better for the environment.”
