BLAST ABRASIVES

"Blast abrasives" typically refer to materials used in abrasive blasting processes, where particles are propelled at a surface to remove contaminants, shape a surface, or prepare it for further treatment. Abrasive blasting is commonly used in industries such as construction, manufacturing, and automotive for tasks like cleaning, deburring, and surface preparation.

There are various types of blast abrasives, and the choice depends on the specific application and the material being processed. 

COMMON BLAST ABRASIVES

Steel Grit and Steel Shot

These abrasives are made from steel and are used for cleaning and preparing metal surfaces. They come in different sizes and hardness levels.

Aluminum Oxide

A widely used abrasive for its hardness and versatility. It is suitable for various applications, including cleaning, deburring, and surface finishing.

Garnet

Known for its natural hardness and durability. Garnet abrasives are often used in waterjet cutting and abrasive blasting.

Glass Beads

These are spherical beads made of glass and are used for gentle cleaning and surface finishing, especially in applications where a smooth, bright finish is desired.

Walnut Shells

Crushed walnut shells are a natural and biodegradable abrasive used for gentle cleaning, polishing, and deburring.

Silicon Carbide

A very hard and sharp abrasive suitable for applications requiring aggressive cutting and grinding, especially on hard surfaces.

Plastic Media

Made from various materials such as acrylic, polyester, or urea, plastic media is used for gentle cleaning and stripping without damaging the substrate.

It's important to choose the right blast abrasive based on the material being treated and the desired outcome, considering factors such as hardness, particle size, and environmental impact. Additionally, safety precautions must be taken to protect workers from exposure to airborne particles during abrasive blasting processes.
