Here at the Openblast Sandblast Company we use a wide range of different abrasives in order to make it possible to clean a wider range of things. Here's a list of some of them along with their purpose of use.
A very versatile material with a large variety of applications including de-burring, de-flashing, decarbonising, peening and mould and die cleaning.
A natural mineral abrasive which contains no free silica, ideally suited to the cleaning of brick and masonry. A number of grades are available to suit applications ranging from providing architectural finishes to concrete, to the restoration of the first stonework and sculptures.
An expendable synthetic mineral abrasive which is widely favoured for open nozzle blasting applications by virtue of its fast rates. A wide range of grades is available to suit most applications. Custom grades are available upon request to meet your specific application.
A hard, durable, low-dusting natural mineral abrasive which is capable of achieving high coverage rates. Coarser grades may be recycled a number of times. Typical applications include blasting of stainless steel and special alloys. Fine grades may be used in jet cutting applications.
Natural organic abrasives such as crushed olive stone or dried corn cob have a gentle cleaning action and are suited to applications where metal removal is not permitted, such as turbine blades or die and mould cleaning.
