Mohs Hardness: 6-6.5
Bulk Density: 130 lbs cuft

Mined Staurolite Sands
Round and Subangular Shaped Media
Coating and Rust Removal
Tests have show it to breakdown faster and produce more dust than Garnet, Crushed Glass and Coal Slag
Starblast™ guaranteed to contain <3% free silica, typically <2%

Sure Cut Sandblast Abrasives (Velocity & Edge)

Sure Cut Abrasives You Tube Screenshot

Consumption rate reductions of up to 30-percent vs Coal Slag
Faster cutting rates producing up to 50-percent less time on the job vs Coal Slag
Reduction in cost per square foot of overhead and material expenditures vs Coal Slag
Velocity early testing shows speeds faster than Garnet and Coal Slag

White Aluminum Oxide Sandblast Abrasive

White Aluminum Oxide You Tube Screenshot

Mohs Hardness: 8-9
Bulk Density: 125 lbs cuft

White fused aluminum oxide is a very high purity oxide
Used when contamination is an issue to be considered
Very hard / sharp abrasive
Highly friable compared to Brown Bluminum Oxide, so it will breakdown much faster
Higher dust levels compared to Brown Aluminum Oxide

Silcion Carbide

Silicon Carbide You Tube Screenshot

Mohs Hardness: 9
