What is Garnet Blasting Media?
Garnet blasting Media is one of the most versatile media for blast cleaning. Garnet abrasive is a naturally occurring silicate crystal. The harder types of garnet like almandine are utilized for more aggressive purposes and have a hardness on the Mohs size of about 6.5 to 7.5. Once refined, it is washed, prepared, and screened to the necessary size gradation for use as an abrasive.
Where conditions permit Garnet Abrasives can be reused. Usually, Garnet Abrasive creates a very minimum amount of dust than expendable abrasives such as Crushed Glass Grit.
The Benefits of Garnet Abrasive Blasting Media
Garnet Blasting Media has the following benefits for almost all applications.
Clean ? Garnet abrasive creates less dust than most other abrasives, making it suitable for use in confined spaces like tanks.
Cost-Effective ? Garnet abrasive is so effective that lower volumes overall are required for most jobs and last a long time.
Garnet Abrasive is a reusable media and can be reused several times under the right conditions. It does break down quicker than fully reusable abrasives such as aluminum oxide grit.
Optimum Surface Clarity ? garnet abrasive results in a superior surface for coating.
Environmentally Friendly ? Garnet is non-toxic and inert, making it safe for use around bodies of water. It is also easy to clean, while its durability reduces the formation of dust.
Uses of Garnet Blasting Media
Garnet abrasive is most generally used as a high-performance blast media, for the cleaning of aluminum and fiberglass structures. Because it is an inert, non-toxic, naturally occurring mineral, garnet abrasive is also used in places where water contamination is a concern, such as dry docks, bridges, and harbors.
Garnet abrasive does not produce as much dust as other expendable abrasive media, making it a popular choice for use in confined spaces as containers and tanks.
