Superior Surface Quality
GMA Garnet™ grains work deep into cavities and pitted areas, cleaning a surface effortlessly. Garnet thoroughly removes dust, soluble salts and other contaminants without the embedments, rough peaks and troughs. With GMA Garnet™, you get the anchoring surface profile your paint requires, every time. GMA Garnet™ effortlessly achieves SSPC-Sa3 White Metal. It also easily delivers the desired surface profile and greater peak density, resulting in an exceptional anchor profile.
High-Productivity Abrasive Blasting
Tough, sharp and heavy, garnet produces the required finish through a combination of velocity and particle size. This produces a cleaner surface, faster and with less abrasive. With lower consumption, higher production rates and shorter project times, garnet helps maintenance and fabrication teams do much more with much less.
In abrasive blasting, an abrasive particle’s acceleration and speed in the air stream is a function of inertia, or size. Smaller grains accelerate much more readily and, through sheer volume, impart a higher concentration of transferred energy upon a surface. This produces a superior cleaning rate that typically equates to twice the area per hour of conventional abrasives.
The Closest Thing to Dustless Blasting
Most garnet abrasives produce significantly lower dust emissions. Our garnet’s inherent material toughness and rapid settling minimize disruption and contamination at your facility, all but eliminating operator visibility issues and other safety challenges. With GMA Garnet™, gone are the days of taking other trades off the job while blasters do theirs.
A Low-Consumption Abrasive
Thanks to the unique grain size distribution of GMA Garnet™, many more active grains impact the surface being cleaned. With garnet, it takes less abrasive to get the job done — an average of 30% to 50% less.
