Garnet Mesh 80 and 120: application in sandblasting processes

The Garnet abrasive sand  is a natural, reddish-brown, odorless mineral used, thanks to its exceptional characteristics, in many sandblasting processes and in the treatment of metals. Compared to silica sand, this product is chemically inert, free of toxic substances, does not emit radiation, is not carcinogenic and is extremely resistant.

Here below the various applications depending on the chosen granulometry.

The Garnet Mesh 80 finds its maximum expression in the naval sector, in particular in the removal of anti-fouling coatings or limescale from any area of the boat, and of the residues on iron after laser cutting. In addition, it is used in the paint stripping and cleaning of hard wood. It is also useful for the cleaning of other materials such as bricks, stones and tiles.

Following, Garnet Mesh 120 applications.

Widely used on precious stone and wooden artefacts for selective cleaning, micro-sandblasting and micro-aeroabrasion, the Garnet Mesh 120 cleans the wood and removes the paint without affecting or lifting the stressed wood fibres. In the automotive sector, this abrasive sand is employed to treat products in stainless steel, aluminum and iron without creating roughness and guaranteeing an excellent final result with an appealing aesthetic aspect. Thanks to its versatility, it finds application also in the powder grinding of car body parts, motorbike parts and alloy wheel rims. Finally, it is ideal for the removal of graffiti from all opaque surfaces, leaving the affected area unaltered and even in the sandblasting of glass and mirrors.
