GARNET BLAST MEDIA

Garnet  in various mesh sizes for mixed media blasting.

A somewhat newer entry into abrasive technology is garnet.

GMA garnet is extremely popular, and Australia actually has access to some of the best sources for it. However, abrasive garnet can be found in many areas of the world, and new sources have proven both useful and economical.

Garnet is a semi-precious stone when found in a polished gem, but it has some unique properties for sand blasting:

  • The edges are nearly uniform to drastically reduce embedment.
  • It’s chemically inert, so an excellent choice for environmentally sensitive areas, including near bodies of water.
  • It’s highly reusable, making it very economical.
  • It’s so sharp that it saves time and labour costs.

Garnet comes in a range of sizes and is frequently used for rust and 2-pac removal, surface preparation and stripping ferrous metals that might react to aluminium oxide.

Our Garnet is the same price no matter what mesh size or packaging option you choose. We hold stock of 20/40, 30/60, 80 and 120 mesh garnet in either 1 tonne bulk bags or on a pallet of 40 x 25kg bags and it’s all the same price no matter what packaging option or mesh size you need.

This helps you when quoting jobs no matter what the requirement your cost is going to be the same for the media.

Garnet can be fed into the flow of the dry ice, offering increased applications for your Dry Ice Blasting system. This is achieved with the addition of the ICEsonic Dry Ice Plus unit which connects into the blast gun of the Dry Ice Blaster.
