I have seen Olivine featured on many Farrow websites and literature – what is it?

Olivine is Lava, and was originally what the manufacturer recommended for use in its equipment. It does contain heavy metals (nickel, chromium, etc.), and is not considered as Eco-Friendly as other blast medias found of the market today. Olivine is also classified as a hard abrasive, even when used at a low pressure. Olivine can do damage to “soft” building facades, including Limestone and Brick.
