Garnet is a sandblasting mineral, derived from either Almandite or Andradite deposits. It is appropriate for both wet and dry sandblasting applications. Garnet is a industrial gemstone that creates a profile virtually free of embedment, which makes it excellent for coating adhesion, as well as applications where low or no transfer of grit into the substrate can be tolerated.
1.High hardness. Garnet will last a long time, making it a very cost effective abrasive.
Mohs Hardness is 7 to 8 depending on the type ..
2.Can recycle a number of times, depending on your grit size (generally you can obtain recycle garnet twice, perhaps more when starting with a coarse grade).
3.Environmentally Friendy! It is thus often used to blast stuctures residing over or next to bodies of water where contamination by the blasting media itself is a concern.
4.Garnet is safe and non toxic with very low free silica levels (generally less than 1%).
5.Low Dusting. Garnet is a fast and clean blast media.
6.Excellent for coating prep use. Garnet will leave a profile that is almost free from embedment, troughs, and peaks.
7.Multiple Shipping Points around the country.
8.Color: Depends. Pink, Red/Brown, Grey/Brown
1.Tanks and other confined spaces where use of a low dusting abrasive is necessary.
2.Dry docks, Bridges, Shipyards - a great abrasive to use where water contamination is a concern.
3.Aluminum and Fiberglass surfaces
5.Powdercoating, denim blasting
