KramBlast Crushed Glass Grit is manufactured from 100% post-consumer, recycled bottle glass. This glass grit delivers superior performance relative to mineral/slag abrasives. KramBlast Crushed Glass Grit contains no free silica, is non-toxic and inert and contains no heavy metals typically found in coal and copper slags. All of the feed-stock material is sent through a state-of-the-art magnetic separating system to remove any contamination and unwanted particulate. This is followed by multiple screening processes to provide un-equaled "raw material" for the final cleaning and grading steps. KramBlast Crushed Glass Grit delivers very low particle embedment, which produces a whiter, cleaner finish.
KramBlast Crushed Glass Grit is cleaned using a proprietary flashing process to separate paper and plastic from the glass. Making sure that the paper and plastic is not burned onto the glass provides a cleaner, higher quality product ready for optimal performance. At this point, the glass has an extremely low moisture content and a cleanliness level that far exceed the industry standard.
A continuous screening process is used to create the various grades of KramBlast Crushed Glass Grit. This continuous process allows for the on-site screening operation to maintain quality control and consistency of the various grades of media. Screens are checked on a regular basis and restored to original specifications immediately. The 80,000 square foot facility provides plenty of room for clean, dry storage of the product prior to shipping.
Blasting with KramBlast Crushed Glass Grit
The angular particles in crushed glass allow for aggressive surface profiling and removal of coatings such as epoxy, paint, alkyds, vinyl, polyurea, coal tar and elastomers. KramBlast Crushed Glass Grit is lighter weight than many slags, allowing for increased consumption efficiency and production time - up to 30-50% less glass grit used. Crushed glass delivers very low particle embedment, which produces a whiter, cleaner finish. Similar to many slags, crushed glass grit has a hardness of 5.0 - 6.0 on the Moh's Hardness Scale.
KramBlast Crushed Glass Grit and the Environment
Since KramBlast Crushed Glass Grit is manufactured from recycled bottle glass, it contains no free silica which is commonly found in blasting sand. The use of post-consumer glass directly benefits the environment by diverting waste from landfills. KramBlast Crushed Glass Grit is free of heavy metals such as arsenic, lead, asbestos, beryllium, titanium, etc., all typically found in coal and mineral slags.
