Blasting Iron with Garnet Abrasive
What Garnet blasting to use for Iron
To give your iron surfaces a new profile, abrasive blasting is the best method to use.
Garnet abrasive blasting makes use of an air compressor to propel blast abrasive grains through a nozzle at high velocity onto your chosen project surface. It has various applications, including the treatment of iron surfaces.
Garnet abrasive can be found at your local hardware store, or online from a specific manufacturer’s site. While aluminum oxide is a classic blast media to use, it doesn’t perform as well as superoxalloy, a rising star in the industry.
If you’re looking for a cost-effective, long-lasting blast media that’s compatible with iron surfaces, then superoxalloy is the best choice.
The Best Abrasive for Blasting Iron
Superoxalloy is a rising star in the world of abrasive blast media. It has all the strengths of other blast media while eliminating many of the weaknesses.
10X Engineered Materials has created a line of superoxalloy abrasives that are strong and durable, and won’t leave embedded particles in your iron surfaces.
The EpiX and KinetiX superoxalloy abrasives are made up of polymorphous particles that perform multiple steps of the blasting process at once, making it possible to remove coatings faster and for less.
Aluminum oxide particles are sharp and angular, making them compatible with only a limited number of jobs. Superoxalloy on the other hand is composed of both angular and rounded particles to name a few, which means it could be used for a variety of purposes.
EpiX and KinetiX resist breakage and can also be reused many times, and are virtually dust-free.
Currently, KinetiX and EpiX are available from abrasive distributors around the US. If you don’t see a distributor near you, contact 10X and we will work with you to get you what you need. EpiX abrasive, which is best for precision applications such as powder coating and medical applications, is also available to purchase directly from the 10X Engineered Materials website.
