Now with a touch of DIY

Loyal Essential Hardware suppliers joined the Midas Mega Mainreef team on Friday 2 August for the re-opening of the first Midas store in collaboration with Essential Hardware.

M

idas Mega Mainreef recently and in collaboration with Essential Hardware opened a hardware section within the store. Midas

stores have always been well known for its motor parts and accessories through to lifestyle equipment. Some Midas’s collaborate with other Hardware groups to include hardware products, but this is the first one however, where Essential Hardware is involved. The motor vehicle care and leisure equipment industry are in some cases so close to the DIY industry – sometimes overlapping - that it makes sense for Midas to have a DIY and hardware section in store. The Essential Hardware group hopes that this is just the first in many of such collaborations with groups like Midas.

The collaboration between the Midas store and the Essential group allows the store to extend its product range significantly, overlapping both the DIY and motor industry.

JUST LET THE FLAPS DO THE WALKING‌. Surface preparation and finishing has never been easier- and ALL is made possible with just one product. Designed and manufactured using the latest production methods and best quality raw materials, SUPERFLEX Flap Discs are specifically formulated to suit South African working conditions. Offering greater productivity and economy, they are real value for money products. Fitting directly onto a portable grinder, without any backing pads needed, you will find them both user-friendly and economical. Whether you are stripping rust from your palisades, removing paint from your kitchen cupboards or cleaning welds on your project Go-Kart, SUPERFLEX flap discs can handle the task.

SUPERFLEX flap discs are manufactured using only quality grade materials, which means that these products can be used on almost any substrate you can think of. From hard and soft woods, to mild and Stainless steels as well as plastic surfaces, SUPERFLEX flap discs are capable of grinding, sanding and/ or polishing them all. The Zirconium material (look for the blue/ green colour) also means that they will not contaminate your Stainless steel, eliminating the need to clean and decontaminate the Stainless steel after grinding and polishing. Available in various grits and sizes, Flap Discs offer a great alternative to abrasive fibre discs. For best results, it is recommended to always choose a flap disc at least one grade coarser when converting from a fibre

A steeper angle is used for stock removal, whilst a shallower angle is used for blending and polishing. Let the flap disc do the work, use less working pressure than with angle grinding discs for best grinding performance and flap disc life. Both the Industrial and Evolution SUPERFLEX Flap Discs are available at major retailers.

PAINTING WOOD When it comes to the preparation of wood prior to painting, there are a few things to remember. Raw wood will need a full coat of wood primer, one coat of a universal undercoat, one coat of an enamel of your choice, light sand with 100-150-grit sandpaper upon drying, and a final coat of enamel for best results. For varnished wood, use sandpaper to remove gloss or shine and to provide a key, then apply one full coat of a universal undercoat and two coats of your chosen enamel. The types of enamels you can apply to wood vary in finish (gloss/ velvet/satin) and are, of course, water- or solvent-based.    FASCIAS • Prepare wooden fascia boards as mentioned above for wood and paint with enamel (water jet, scraping, sanding) and then prime the surface to bind
