Aluminum Oxide-Brown

(click to expand)   

Aluminum Oxide grit is carefully shaped and graded for pressure blasting applications. It is sharp and can be used and reused again. Absence of wasteful flats and slivers maximizes cutting efficiency in deburring, descaling, etching and surface smoothing applications. Low iron content eliminates danger of rust-staining to weather-exposed granite, marble and stainless steel.

Product Type: INDUSTRIAL

Features & Benefits

  • Recyclable
  • Maximum resistance to breakdown
  • Less than 1% free silica
  • Low iron content
  • Eliminates danger of rust-staining
  • Non-skid floor coating applications
