Using Abrasive Grit on More than 1 Pass?

Cost-conscious users of blasting materials know that the price per lb. of aluminum oxide is higher than materials such as coal slag or garnet, but aluminum oxide can be used multiple times on a work piece while still remaining highly abrasive. Other less expensive blasting media are often only good for one pass. If you currently have or are considering moving to a containment system for blasting media that enables you to reuse the grit, then aluminum oxide may be your best choice for a more cost effective abrasive.

If you have wondered whether moving to aluminum oxide might be a cost benefit to you but are not sure, please contact us today and ask about our BLASTITE blasting grit. We can help you assess whether the performance benefits of aluminum oxide are appropriate for your particular blasting application. or 800-828-1666.
