GARNET
ABRASIVE

Garnet is an excellent abrasive choice for many outdoor blasting applications when coating preparation is paramount. Heavy particle impacts are well sustained due to garnets higher mineral hardness 

Garnet is a versatile, mined mineral abrasive, used in a wide variety of applications. Because of its tough mineral structure, garnet is a low dusting media with excellent recycling and cutting properties. The unique grain structure keep garnet from breaking down even in tough blasting scenarios.
