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.
[ From metallurgy/minerology: superalloy + oxide ]
Superoxalloy abrasives have a clean health and safety profile for workers and the environment.
- No free silica
- No heavy metals
- No crystalline structures
- No beryllium
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.
Extremely low dust
Superoxalloy abrasives create a low-dust work environment. The clear view helps operators deliver higher-quality results in less time. The difference is clear.
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.
Virtually no embedment
Superoxalloy abrasives leave a truly clean substrate, free of embedded particles which can trigger rust bloom.
