Brown Aluminium Oxide Abrasive Description

Fast and Aggressive blasting applications
Fast and Aggressive blasting applications
  • The Aluminium Oxide abrasive distributed by GritSablare is a very tough material and records a value of 9.0 on the Mohs scale. Thanks to its superior toughness, this abrasive is successfully used for blasting operations that require great strength and high speed work.
  • This material is highly pure, therefore is ideal for surfaces that do not allow transfer with other substances during the blasting operation: stainless steel, alumina, copper.
  • This abrasive is manufactured from artificial corundum by fusion operations. The particles are very tough and sharp, having high cutting speed and efficient cleaning properties. The aluminium oxide particles produce an etch finish: the fine particles produce a dull matt finish and the rough particles produce a rough etch. This material is used both for dry blasting and also for wet blasing.
  • It is suitable for resin-bonded cut off and grinding wheels, vitrified wheels, cutting cast iron, regular steel, carbon steel, and nonferrous metals like hard bronze. It also can be used for blasting, cleaning, mass finishing, descaling, etching, surface preparation, anti-skid surface, coating and paint removal, de-burring, metal finishing.

Brown Aluminium Oxide Abrasive Application

food tanks, stainless steel tubs
Stainless steel blasting: food tanks, stainless steel tubs
The aluminium oxide is a highly pure abrasive which allows no transfer between the surfaces, being ideal for blasting ferrous-free materials: stainless steel food tanks, alumina tubes, other parts of carbon steel, copper. This material can be reused multiple times due to its superior toughness, therefore making substantial material economies.

Other applications:
  • Stainless steel blasting, carbon steel, aluminium, copper;
  • Food industry for food tanks blasting;
  • Spare parts blasting, in blasting rooms;
  • Metallic structures: vessels, bridges, tanks.
