Garnet is a natural mineral abrasive used in a variety of blasting applications and for waterjet cutting. It has an angular-shaped grain and high bulk density which makes it a very aggressive abrasive with relatively low dust. Garnet has the cutting ability to reach the substrate, removing corrosion or coatings. It can achieve mil profile finishes for most coating applications.
Garnet is ideal for use on ferrous and non-ferrous materials. Other types of media may present cross-contamination concerns on aluminum and stainless steel.
