Sandblasting

Sandblasting

“Sandblast”, “Sandblasting”, and “sandblaster” are general terms used to describe the act of propelling very fine particles of abrasive material at high-velocity to clean or etch a surface. Historically, sand used to be the most commonly used material for this purpose. With the discovered link between the lung disease silicosis and the extended inhalation of the silicon (sand) dust, its use for abrasive blasting contravenes health and safety guidelines and is now illegal in Australia.

W. Granowski offers an extensive range of modern and safe non-metallic abrasives. Garnet abrasive is the most commonly used of the sand substitutes and comes in a range of grades for fine and course abrasive blasting. All of our non-metallic abrasives have been developed to provide the optimum surface preparation result. Why not talk to us about your specific application.
