The best garnet abrasive to use on Bondo

Bondo is a popular filler used in body shops all over the world. However, there may be times when it needs to be removed. If you’re looking for an abrasive material to remove the Bondo from a car, here’s a few things you should know about aluminum oxide blasting.

What is Bondo?

Bondo is a great product for filling in small holes and imperfections in the paint and body of a car. It’s also great for restoring an original shine and paint job on a car. However, it may be a bit difficult to get off of the surface of the car so you can restore an original shine and paint job. Usually, people use a wire brush to get it off, but this can take a while and can leave the surface of the car with an uneven finish. To get the Bondo off faster, you can use an aluminum oxide blasting to remove the Bondo quickly and efficiently.

Sandblasting is a common procedure that has been used for many years in several industries as a way to resurface, refinish and properly finish an object. It works by shooting tiny particles at an object with compressed air at high velocity.

Garnet blasting 

Garnet blasting is commonly used to strip paint and rust off of equipment and objects. It can also be used to improve the quality of the surface of the object. The resulting finish is typically smoother than the original. It can also be used to improve the quality of the surface of the object.

The Best Abrasive Media for Removing Bondo

There are several different types of abrasive media available for sanding off bondo. Aluminum oxide sandpaper is a common material used for sanding off old paint. It can withstand long periods of sanding time and it’s inexpensive, readily available, and economically friendly. If you do a lot of woodworking or have access to an oscillating tool, you can use an abrasive belt. Another option is to use a medium like glass-impregnated paper or stearated sandpaper, but be careful not to use too much or you’ll easily cause sanding burns. It’s the only orbital sander that comes with a microfiber cloth pre-attached to the box. This saves you from having to buy an additional item, and it makes it easy to clean the dust and debris off the microfiber after each use. Garnet blasting is also an alternative to consider but you need to keep in mind the hardness of this abrasive in order to avoid damaging your substrate.

One advantage of media blasting with garnet for Bondo removal is that it can be done much more quickly than other restoration methods. As long as your item can stand up to the process, it is a candidate for garnet media blasting.

Different surfaces need different types of abrasives to clean and prepare them. Metal must be cleaned with metal cleaners and prepared with metal finishers. Plastic requires different abrasives than wood and rubber.

The EpiX and KinetiX line of superoxalloy blast abrasive from 10X Engineered Materials is a new type of abrasive that will get rid of the bondo, and leave a clean substrate, virtually free of embedded particles — unlike alternatives such as garnets, slags, metals and glass, and sandpapers — so the next coating can be applied properly.
