Applications: Common replacement for silica sand in sand blasting; water jet cutting of materials including steel.
Specs: Pieces larger than 60 mesh are normally used for sand blasting. Pieces between 60 mesh and 200 mesh are normally used for water jet cutting.
Applications: Water jet cutting; mill scale, rust, and paint removal; stone and glass etching. Excellent for achieving a near white finish and commonly used for new steel applications.
Specs: Sub-angular shape is ideal for applications where a minimal surface profile is required. Uniform particle size provides consistent coverage and surface finish, increasing production rates. Lower dust levels. Can be recycled three to five times.
Applications: Commonly used for restoration of heavily painted steel bridges, ships and water towers. Note that this is NOT coal slag, which is dusty, dirty, and poorly sized.
Specs: Coarse, angular, and dense, slag offers very low dust levels and faster cleaning. Crystalline silica levels are less than 1%.
Applications: Powder coating removal; non-etch cleaning; removal of difficult coatings without damage to delicate substrates such as titanium, aluminum, and anodized and cadmium-plated surfaces.
Specs: An alternative to chemical strippers. Very low specific gravity and hardness.
Applications: For removal of surface contamination, debris, and coatings with little to no impact on the substrate.
Specs: Resistant to break down and can be re-used multiple times in the blasting process. Virtually dust-free and leaves a clean and dry surface. Available in a variety of grit sizes and presents no health or environmental hazards.
Applications: Blast clean and polish soft metals, glass, fiberglass, wood, plastic and stone. Removal of paint, flash, burrs and other flaws in plastic, alloy die casting and electronics; clean automotive parts, aircraft engines and turbines; remove graffiti; cleaning and restoration of steel, wood, brick, stone or concrete; polishing and cleaning of fine metals and alloys.
Specs: Soft, durable, and can be ground to various sizes ranging from coarse to extra fine, allowing for a fine degree of control over
