GMA Garnet™ abrasive is composed of natural Almandite garnet grains that are known for their natural hardness, durability and abrasive characteristics.
It is a cost-effective alternative to silica sand, mineral slags and steel grits and shot as the perfect symbiosis of grain size, density and hardness/durability creates the optimum abrasive efficiency – lowest abrasive consumption (kg/m2) at the highest production rates (m2/hr).
In addition, GMA Garnet™ is recyclable up to 5–10 times (depending on the application) due to its toughness and low friability. Being environmentally inert, GMA Garnet™ meets all Occupational Health and Safety requirements and achieves the highest quality of processing standards in respect of mineral purity and the stringent requirements of ISO 11126-10:2000 for chloride and free silica content. GMA Garnet™ is used as a blast cleaning abrasive in various industries around the world and is approved by major oil companies, shipyards and major paint manufacturers. It is suitable for all areas of surface preparation especially stainless steel, anti-magnetic steel and all specialty alloys as it is free of metallic iron. Special fine grades of GMA Garnet™ abrasive are also available for aluminium, turbine blades, fibreglass and other unique surface preparation applications.
