About superoxalloy abrasives
an all-new class ofabrasive blast media
What is a superoxalloy abrasive?
An engineered alloy of oxide minerals created through highly controlled formulation and tempering (high heat + rapid cooling). The process creates non-crystalline (amorphous) particles that resist breakage under stress of high-speed mechanical impact.

Superoxalloy: The Ultimate Sandblasting Media
When it comes to sandblasting, utilizing the right media is crucial. This is where superoxalloy abrasives come into play, providing superior performance and unmatched safety. Our sandblasting abrasives have gained recognition as a top choice for sandblasters due to their clean health and safety profile, ensuring the well-being of workers and the environment.
Ultra Safe Media for Sandblasters
Superoxalloy abrasives have a clean health and safety profile for workers and the environment. Our sandblaster sand is made of mineral wool. The World Health Organization (WHO) International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) Agency reviewed decades of animal and human studies of long-term exposure to high air concentrations of mineral wool dust. The 2002 IARC Monograph (Volume 81) determined that mineral wool dust is bio-soluble in the lungs and is not classifiable as carcinogenic in humans (Group 3). This IARC categorization removed the material from lists of possible carcinogens everywhere in the world.
Virtually No Embedment For A Pristine Surface
Superoxalloy abrasives leave a truly clean substrate, virtually free of embedded particles which can trigger rust bloom. With our sandblast media you don’t have to compromise the quality of your sandblasted surface. Achieve a remarkably pristine and ready-to-coat surface with our sandblasting sand.
Extremely Low Dust Abrasive
Superoxalloy abrasives create a low-dust work environment. The clear view helps operators deliver higher-quality results in less time. The difference is clear.
Superoxalloy abrasives resist breakage and can be reused many times.
Unlike crystalline particles (like those in slags, garnet and aluminum oxide), amorphous particles do not have any fracture planes. Amorphous particles are equally strong in all directions and resist breakage up to 120 PSI or higher.
Formed for efficiency
Superoxalloy abrasives are made up of polymorphous particles, meaning particles with many shapes. Each shape can perform different tasks in a blasting job, enabling superoxalloys to perform multiple blasting steps in one and deliver a clean, ready-to-coat surface.
