Brown Aluminum Oxide Abrasive Media Overview

Brown aluminum oxide is probably the most popular abrasive blast media.  Its overall characteristics combine to make it highly efficient and reusable.  As a result, it is used for etching, paint removal, and preparing surfaces for re-coating.  Additionally, its angular shape performs well when removing heavy foreign matter and quickly cutting stone.  Next, it is angular in shape, hard and extremely fast cutting.  Thus it can be reused several times before discarding.  Finally, brown aluminum oxide is also available in a variety of sizes.

Health and Safety WARNING

Brown Aluminum Oxide Blast 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.
