Crushed glass offers significant cost savings over using plastic beads, soda blast, and sand. Because it is more aggressive, it is able to remove corrosion and tougher coatings that other medias cannot, such as thick and rubbery elastomeric coatings.

Glass blasting sand is very economical, available in a variety of grit sizes, and through a wide variety of grades, can achieve all MIL Profiles.  We use glass blasting media for this reason

  • Cheaper
  • Sustainable and environmentally friendly
Benefits of Glass Blast:
    • Efficiently Cleans steel, aluminum, wood, concrete, stone, fiberglass
    • Excellent replacement to silica sand
    • Glass Blast will leave a clean, bright finish to metal surfaces
    • Excellent for achieving an aggressive profile for coatings, including cathodic protection and overlay performance
    • Glass delivers very low particle embedment (less than 2%) which produces a whiter (SP-10) finish to the substrate.
    • Lighter weight than most abrasives.  Contractors report back that they use at least 25% less abrasive (some say up to 50% less) when using glass as compared to mineral slags
    • SAFE - no free silica, is chemically inert and non toxic, heavy metal free in most cases
    • Inert - can use it around water
    • Mohs Hardness of 6.0 - similar to slags
    • Superior rust-back performance when compared with mineral/slag abrasives
    • Many tests confirm less dust when blasting with glass vs mineral slags - up to 31% less dust generated
    • Contains No Beryllium like mineral slags do
    • Uniform Density
    • Dust is translucent! No visual barrier to the blasting operator and does not leave black dust all over
    • A great alternative to coal slag.  Contains no beryllium and will not leave black dust all over
    • Great for thick, softer coatings because it is a lighter weight abrasive.  It does not "bounce" back off the surface. It cuts it like a knife
    • Great for concrete and leaves no residue, discoloration, odor, imbedding, or ferrous impingement.
    • Excellent additive for seal coating operations!
    • Excellent replacement for soda blasting due to its lower cost and it will not leave a PH imbalance on the substrate (which often requires a PH wash solution so that the paint will adhere).  Glass will also cut through rust, and soda blast will struggle
