40 years of experience in innovation

Founded in 1979, INDASA is now one of Europe’s leading manufacturers of high performance coated abrasive technology


From its headquarters in Aveiro, Portugal, INDASA specializes in the production of innovative sanding systems that deliver market specific solutions to a wide range of manufacturing and service industries

The consistently high standards of development, production and marketing of coated abrasives have earned the company a number of globally recognized accreditations over the years. Research & Development plays a crucial role in the ongoing development of technically advanced, high performance abrasive materials. Only the highest quality raw materials and FEPA compliant mineral grains are used, thus providing consistency of performance and efficiency across the abrasive grit range.
Quality as a standard
In 1994, INDASA implemented a Quality Assurance System according to the NP EN ISO 9002 which was a natural step to strengthen the continuous improvement dynamics. Later on, INDASA extended its certification to ISO 9001 in 2000, including development, manufacturing and distribution of flexible abrasives. The company management system is currently certified for the “development, manufacturing and marketing of coated abrasives and marketing of complementary products”.
