Garnet sand is a good abrasive and a common replacement for silica sand in sand blasting.
Garnet is cost effective because it's harder, heavier and more durable than other blast abrasives. It cuts faster and significantly increases productivity while reducing abrasive consumption. Garnet abrasives can be recycled up to 3 times or more without losing their superior cutting ability and it's perfect for all types of blasting applications including, removing existing coatings, rust and other contamination.
The world's most popular Garnet Blasting Abrasive Grade, it's an ideal choice for superior surface preparation for new steel prior to tank coating, for pipelines both internal and external, fabricated steel and structures etc. Garnet generates low dust levels because of its inherent toughness and rapid settling due to high specific gravity. Lower dust levels lead to minimum disruption, improved operator visibility and reduced clean up costs.
