Fossa Evo Mesh Sanding Discs Review

Fossa evo mesh sanding discs are similar to abranet, which is an abrasive material and allows the passage of dust when used with a suitable sander / extractor setup. They stick to the sander with a Velcro like material on the back of the pad.

I use a Mirka Deros and a Festool RTS 400, but these pads would fit just about any dustless set up as far as I know. You can buy round Fossa evo mesh sanding discs or rectangle pads, but you can cut them down into any shape you like. They also come in different grades which is handy.

I ordered several boxes of different grade discs from decorating direct to see how they compare to the Mirka and Festool discs. I hoped these would do the same job as the branded discs. I was unsure at first as they are considerably cheaper than the other brands, but I kept an open mind.

They stick to both backing pads just fine, and they do the job well, the only downside to them is they don’t last as long as the other brands, but at a third of the price I’m willing to make some sacrifices. Other than that they are absoluetely fine.

Fossa evo mesh sanding discs are much cheaper than the Festool and Mirka equivalents. It’s like buying French Connection over Versace. The quality is fine, and it still works well, but it’s a third of the price. Plus, these pads fit just about every sander!! No faffing about with three or four different types of pad.

I would definitely recommend that you grab a box 👍
