TWO TYPES AVAILABLE!
We offer distinct variants of Aluminum Oxide blast media: high quality Virgin Brown Fused Aluminum Oxide (VFBA) as well as remanufactured, reclaimed Aluminum Oxide that was was cleaned by GMA according to their strict industry standards. Aluminum Oxide (ALOX) is a tough, long-lasting, hard material that can be used for many different applications such as grinding, sandblasting and metal preparation. It is processed using only certified crude and conforms to industry specifications for size, bulk density and magnetic content.
Aluminum Oxide blast media is a very hard wear-resistant material, registering 9 on the MOHS hardness scale, and can be re-used up to 15 times in a media reclamation system.
We offer many different sizes including our most popular: 36 grit, 80 grit and 180 grit.
