World-Class Garnet Blast Abrasives
George Townsend & Co., Inc is proud to carry high-performance garnet blast abrasives for a wide variety of blasting applications.
Available Blast Abrasive Grades:
20x40 Alluvial - Coarse
30x60 Alluvial – Medium
80HPA Alluvial – Fine
Superior Surface Quality
Blasting with garnet produces a clean surface virtually free of embedments, rogue peaks and troughs. Our blast media produces a clean substrate with a uniform surface profile that improves both coating adhesion and life.
Low Dusting, Safe to Use
A non-ferrous, 100% natural, inert mineral containing less than 1% free silica, garnet abrasives poses little to no health or environmental risks. It produces less dust than other blasting media, improves operator visibility and reduces cleanup costs while minimizing the impact on adjoining work areas. Our abrasives meet all current industry standards and many grades are listed on the California Air Resources Board (CARB) approval for permissible dry outdoor blasting.
CAS number 1302-62-1, almandine and pyrope garnet.
