Traditional sand blasting and the need for healthy and environmentally sensitive operations meet up perfectly when using Crushed Glass Grit. Glass has the same hardness and other blasting properties as silica sand but none of the inhalation dangers from free silica. Crushed Glass Grit is 100% recycled glass diverting this material away from landfills.
Crushed Glass Grit is available in a wide variety grit sizes making it suitable for many different applications. Coarse sizes can be used for heavy duty stripping of paint, rust and other coatings off structural steel, concrete, brick and other structures. Fine sizes can be used (if careful) on thin metal surfaces such as automobile door panels without warping and even on wood surfaces without etching.
With recent performance and environmental approvals from the military and government agencies, Crushed Glass Grit is increasingly being used as a replacement for coal slag and other ‘dirty’ media. As Glass contains no heavy metals or free silica this media is showing increasing versatility as an economical, consumable blasting media.
