Garnet Abrasives is most commonly used as a high-performance blast media, for the cleaning of aluminium and fibreglass structures. Because it is an inert, non-toxic, naturally-occurring mineral, garnet abrasive is also used on sites where water contamination is a concern, such as dry docks, bridges and harbours.
Garnet abrasive does not produce as much dust as other expendable abrasives, making it particularly suited for use in such confined spaces as tanks and containers.
Garnet abrasive is one of the most effective, safe, and versatile medias for blast cleaning.
Higher Productivity, Lower Costs
Garnet is harder, heavier and more durable than other blasting media.
Garnet is ideally suited to recycling when used in blast-room settings, typically providing three to five turns, making it one of the most economical mineral abrasives on the market.
Superior Surface Quality
Garnet grains scour deep into cavities and pitted areas down to bare metal, thoroughly removing all rust, soluble salts and other contaminants. Our garnet abrasives are ideal for use on steel, stainless steel, aluminum and other substrates. Garnet products improve coating adhesion and coating life by producing a clean substrate with a uniform surface profile virtually free of embedments, rogue peaks and troughs.
Low Dusting, Safe to Use
Garnet is a 100% natural, nonferrous inert mineral with <0.1% respirable crystalline silica and no heavy metals. Our garnet poses little or no health or environmental risks, and it produces less dust than many other blasting abrasives, resulting in improved visibility, less disruption to adjoining work areas, and safer working conditions.
