Garnet abrasive is a naturally occuring silicate mineral deposit. The harder species of garnet like almandine are used for abrasive purposes, and have a hardness on the Mohs scale of about 6.5 to 7.5. Once extracted, it is washed, processed and screened to the necessary grade for use as an abrasive.
Copper slag is a by-product of copper extraction by smelting. During smelting, impurities become slag which floats on the molten metal. Slag that is quenched in water produces angular granules which are disposed of as waste or utilized as discussed below.
Abrasive Garnet Garnet is a mineral abrasive produced from naturally occurring almandite garnet. It is produced by processing river sand and grading to exact specifications. Due to its low free silica, Garnet abrasive is widely used ins and/grit blasting and now widely popular for water jet cutting. Garnet is cost effective, environmentally and operator friendly, alternative to silica sands and minerals slags and will provide a class Sa3 White Metal finish. Garnet particles are dense, hard and sharp and free of heavy metals or toxic components. The high useability of garnet permits recycling up to 5-8 times and the relatively high density ensures fast blasting speeds.
Our steel shot is exceptionally durable ¡§c due to its low friability, the impact of blasting actually further tempers the shot so that its hardness increases over time, allowing the media to deliver consistent, repeatable performance over thousands of cycles. As produced, our steel shot has a hardness of 40-50hrc (390-510 h.V). And thanks to its extremely low breakdown rate, virtually no dust is produced. Delivering high-impact energy and fast cleaning rates, steel shot is used to for heavy scouring and to produce very bright finishes Steel shot size: s70, s110, s170, s230, s280, s330, s390, s460, s550, s660, s780, s930 Steel shot diameter: 0.2mm, 0.3mm, 0.5mm, 0.6mm, 0.8mm, 1.0mm, 1.2mm, 1.4mm, 1.7mm, 2.0mm, 2.5mm, 3.0mm Steel shot used for shot blasting , shot peening
