CRUSHED GLASS BLAST MEDIA

Our Crushed Glass “sandblasting” media is manufactured from 100% recycled bottle glass. Crushed bottle glass is a good general purpose abrasive – its economical, eco and operator-friendly, and offers many advantages over traditional abrasives such as coal and copper slag.  ESCA bottle glass works great in slurry, vapor, dustless, and dry-blast equipment, 

  • Not too hard AND Not too soft:  An “in-between” abrasive

Crushed Glass is classified as a semi-hard abrasive.  It’s aggressive enough to remove many coatings and paints, and with the right technique and approach, it can also be used on fiberglass boat bottoms, some wood materials, commercial masonry, and other sensitive substrates that harder abrasives would ruin.

Our best analogy is this:  When you drop a glass bottle it will shatter.  However, a bottle made of JETMAG would just bounce of the floor.  Although glass will abrade the surface you are working on, you can control its impact because of this “shattering” feature.  It is possible to achieve a range of finishes with glass, from very light textures to paint-ready profiles.  Due to its translucent nature, crushed glass will also deliver a whiter metal finish than many other sandblasting  abrasives.

Our crushed glass comes in five different mesh sizes to suit your blasting needs – our 40/70 blend is our most popular and comes in a leak-proof poly bag.
