Garnet Abrasive: the Contractor’s Blast Media of Choice
Today, contractors are choosing Garnet blast media as an alternative to Mineral Slag, Steel Grit, Shot, Slag or Silica Sand.
Unlike some of these blast abrasives, the Garnet abrasive does not contain high levels of toxic substances and known carcinogens; this makes Garnet, much safer for workers operating sandblasting equipment and for those around the sandblasting site.
Garnet blast media is also much more environmentally-friendly than Slag and Silica Sand abrasives. This environmental-responsible aspect makes Garnet abrasives ideal for sites that are on or around bodies of water.
The Garnet abrasive is used for wet or dry sandblasting. Garnet blast media offers superior hardness (Mohs Hardness is typically 7-8), as well as excellent coating prep and adhesion properties.
