Blaster face shields become etched and damaged from abrasive rebound off the surface being blasted. Face shields often require frequent replacement because the etched surface decreases visibility and can make quality surface preparation difficult.
The 10X Breakthrough:
A blasting operator working with a painting contractor noticed that his face shield was not being damaged when using 10X superoxalloy abrasive and that it made his job much easier to do. It was meaningful enough to him that he brought it to our attention and allowed us to take this photo. Keeping face shields clear — combined with ultra-low dust levels with 10X superoxalloys — creates a safer workplace and improves the effectiveness of operators.
