Mohs Hardness: 7-8
Bulk Density: 90-105 lbs cuft

  • Made of Spherical, Angular, Sub-Angular and Oval Shaped Abrasives
  • Significantly Delays Flash Rust 
  • Good replacement of Garnet - Cuts Faster (at all pressures tested) and Uses Less Abrasive to complete same job
  • Beryllium and Free Silica Not Listed on SDS (not detected)

Mohs Hardness: 8-9
Bulk Density: 110 lbs cuft

  • Hard and long lasting abrasives 
  • Typically used in blast cabinet and rooms because of recyclability
  • Used in Vibratory Media as a cutting agent 
  • Aluminum oxide used as a grinding and polishing media
  • Very hard and sharp abrasive

Mohs Hardness: 5.5-6.6
Bulk Density: 100 lbs cuft

  • Made of 100% Recycled Glass 
  • Safe For Use Around Water
  • American Made 
  • Contains less than 1% free silica 
  • Non-reactive & inert
  • Beryllium is not listed on SDS
  • CARB Approved / QPL Approved / Mil-Spec, SSPC AB-1, MIL-A-22262B(SH)

Mohs Hardness: 6.5-7
Bulk Density: 140 lbs cuft

  • Used in Sandblast and Waterjet 
  • Relatively Hard Mined Mineral
  • Heavy Abrasive Requires Higher Pressures to be effective 
  • Less than 10% Mined in the USA

Mohs Hardness: 7
Bulk Density: 160 lbs cuft

  • Hard, Heavy good etching abrasive
  • Breaks down in small angular pieces 
  • Wear on nozzles and hoses
  • Angular Shaped / Dark Grey or Black color

Mohs Hardness: 3-4.5
Bulk Density: 55 lbs cuft

  • 100% Recycled Material 
  • Good for coating removal without damaging the substrate 
  • Military used Plastic Abrasive to replace toxic chemical stripping 
  • Blast Cleaning, Deflashing and Deburring product
  • Good abrasive to deburr machined aluminum parts
  • Used in Mobile applications along with Blast Cabinets and Blast Rooms
