Festool has expanded the Granat range to include the new Granat Soft abrasive – which has been specially developed for use with the Planex and Planex easy long-reach sanders. Thanks to its flexible foam base, the new Granat Soft is particularly adaptable and consequently enables reliable sanding of completely filled surfaces.

“If you want fast and economical sanding, the Granat premium abrasive is just the thing. The right abrasive paper is essential for perfect sanding results, especially when sanding completely filled walls and ceilings of the highest surface finish class (Q3 and Q4). We have specially developed the new Granat Soft abrasive paper for this application area and for use with the Planex and Planex easy long-reach sanders,” explains Christine Klein, Product Manager for Abrasives at Festool.

The flexible foam base is particularly adaptable and enables reliable sanding for a fine and scratch-free sanding finish. Thanks to its perforation, Granat Soft allows for reliable dust extraction when used together with the Planex long-reach sander and the compatible mobile dust extractor. The Granat Soft premium abrasive is particularly advantageous for processing very soft ready-made fillers: The soft backing material adapts itself to every unevenness – for easy sanding and perfect results. Thanks to its extremely long useful life, the abrasive needs to be replaced much less frequently – saving you time and money. Granat Soft is available in a diameter of 225 mm and different grit sizes (P80 to P400).
