Coal Slag

media blastingCoal slag abrasives offer superior cleaning ability, thanks to hard, angular particles that enhance speed and cutting.

Coal slag is a preferred alternative to silica sand which can contain up to 99% free silica and has been found to cause silicosis, a sometimes fatal lung disease.

  • Less than 0.1% free silica
  • Low dusting
  • Chemically inert
  • Hard, angular pieces enhance speed and cutting
  • Very low friability = less fracturing or splintering
  • Consistent uniform weight and gradation ensures no clogging
