ABOUT BLASTING MEDIA

Blasting Media, which is also referred to as sand blasting media or abrasive grit, has a wide variety of uses including removing contaminants from a surface, which in many instances is a procedure to prepare the surface of the material for a coating. The media can be used on metals, plastics, rubbers, granite, ceramics, marble, glass and more. Blasting is the act of shooting or propelling a stream of abrasive materials as media against surfaces using high pressured blasting cabinets or guns. Unlike other blasting media options such as garnet or coal slag which generally have a one or two time use, our brown fused aluminum oxide blasting media is a tough and durable media that can be reclyed and reused many times.
