Blasting Garnet Abrasive Media Overview

Blasting garnet is another popular abrasive blast media.  While not as hard as other media options, it is still effective for surface cleaning, and light deburring.  A sub-angular shape makes it cut less than other media but still productive for removing rust and scale.

Health and Safety WARNING

Blasting Garnet Abrasive Media Safety

Throughout our site we use the term sandblasting or some variation. We use the word “sand” because it is a familiar term to our customers. However, the word sandblasting is as old as the industry itself, and refers to the sand used decades ago.  Most importantly, there are many dangers with actual sand in blasting.  Too many in fact to list.  Above all, we advise against using ANY SAND in your cabinet or blasting process – ever.  Read more about why we take this approach.

NEVER use silica sand or any silica based media in ANY blast cabinet.  We offer a broad variety of abrasive blast media specific for your project. Exposure to this silica is known to causes severe and often fatal damage to lung tissue. Therefore, DO NOT ever use silica sand in abrasive blast equipment. Again, we simply DO NOT recommend using sand in a “sandblasting” cabinet – there are too many safer alternatives.
