THE FUTURE OF SURFACE PREPARATION IS HEREMobile dustless blasting
Our crushed glass abrasive blast is made from 100% recycled glass. This is an inert abrasive that is recommended by NIOSH as a substitute for slag and mineral abrasives. Contains no heavy metals, no free silica, and is therefore great for blasting projects where it is impractical to recover lost or spilled spent abrasive. Crushed glass offers significant cost savings over using plastic beads, soda blast, and glass beads. 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 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.
Contains No Beryllium like mineral slags do.
DUST IS TRANSLUCENT! No visual barrier to the blasting operator and does 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 not.
Excellent replacement for corn cob blasting log homes as it will not embed into the wood, and thus you do not have to hand sand after blasting. (This can equate to an 80% time savings over corn cob.)
