“The Malco ‘Conformable Sander’ is the first re-usable sanding block design capable of holding hand-pressed convex, concave or S shapes to match a contoured surface” says David Clark, New Business Development Manager for Malco Products. “We are initially targeting this new product for the auto body repair and restoration market,” he said. “Our research and development approach was, from the start, a process matching over 65-years of Malco tool design expertise with field research, testing and real world insights gained from our USA ‘Gold Class Certified’ Body Shop partners. The work-saving advantage we have produced for the auto body technician is a segmented sanding block, with internal aluminum memory bar, that can be quickly set and re-set to conform to auto body contours encountered throughout the sanding operation.
