What is it?
Garnet is a natural, chemically inert mineral with angular grains that are durable, hard, and abrasive. Garnet comes in a wide range of grades and compositions for different jobs and profiles.
How does it work?
A relatively hard and dense abrasive, garnet is blasted against the substrate, with a very quick rate of removal on tough surfaces and a high cleaning efficiency. This makes it a very productive abrasive for quick and effective surface removal of thick coatings on heavy equipment. Blasted at a low pressure, garnet bounces off the surface instead of cutting into it, which removes dirt and other contaminants without harming even delicate substrates.
- Will not harm the substrate: no etching and pitting of substrate.
- Environmental friendly: non-toxic, inert natural mineral.
- Easy clean up: its extreme density creates a very contained work area.
- Cost–effective: highly effective, recyclable with low consumption.
- Low dust levels: improved operator visibility, precision, ability to work in confined spaces.
- Chemically inert: will not interfere with additional coatings.
- Non-porous: will not draw moisture.
- Free of metallic iron: makes it suitable to use with stainless steel, anti-magnetic steel, and all specialty alloys.
