Other Abrasives

1. Aluminium Silicate

Aluminium silicate is produced form coal slag. It’s a by-product collected from power stations where they burn coal in furnace. It has a wide range of applicability like glass sealing, insulators, alloying , soldering , welding etc., For blasting industry It’s mainly used to blast on steel and stone/concrete surfaces. Also used to remove rust, old paint, dirt etc. Origin of our Aliuminium silicate is from Netherlands. We are official distributor of EUROGRIT authorized to sell in Malaysia. Its also inert and natural abrasive which has no content of free silica.

2. Steel Grit

Steel Grit is made out of crushing spherical shaped steel shots. After crushing the grains will become angular shaped with sharp edges. The main applications for steel grit are blasting, descaling, etching etc., We sell three types of steel grit with grades mentioned as “GP, GL, GH”. These each grade has different levels of hardness and used for different purposes. Steel Grit GP – It has low hardness ranges from 42 to 55 HRC. Its mainly used for wheel blasting machines. It also cleans quick with little high in maintenance cost and machine parts in foundry industry. Steel Grit GL – It has average hardness ranges from 55 to 60 HRC. It can be used in both Blast rooms and wheel blasting machines. Its appropriate product for heavy descaling and surface preparation. As it has an average hardness rate it may loose the angular shape when blasting. Steel Grit GH – It has the highest hardness range from 60 – 64 HRC. It mostly used for quick cleaning in blast rooms. During blasting its shape remains same because of its hardness. Its best suitable for surface etching requirement.

3. Steel Shot

Steel shot is produced through granulation process of molten steel. These are spherical in shape. At final stage of production, the steel shot will be segregated based on its size. They come with different sizes and hardness used for different purposes. Steel shots are used for various purposes like descaling, cleaning, shot peening, desanding etc. and used in various heavy industries like construction, railway, ship building, automobiles, aviation etc. Also used in stone material processing Steel shot blasting is manly done on metal surfaces. Steel grit and shot is costly when comparing to other abrasives used in blasting. As like steel grit there are few grades to steel shots with different sizes and hardness. We mainly sell SB grade with hardness 40-50 HRC Steel shot blasting is manly done on metal surfaces. Steel grit and shot is costly when comparing to other abrasives used in blasting. As like steel grit there are few grades to steel shots with different sizes and hardness. We mainly sell SB grade with hardness 40-50 HRC

4. Brown Aluminium Oxide

BROWN ALUMINIUM OXIDE (Al2O3) also known as BROWN FUSED ALUMINA is made from bauxites through reduction fusion method in electric arc furnace. Due to the materials toughness, strength, corrosion resistance and thermal conductivity it has a wide range of applications. Its applications include sand blasting, coated tools, abrasive tools, grinding wheels, sand paper, lapping, grinding, polishing etc., BROWN FUSED ALUMINA is appropriate for enclosed blasting in cabinet or blast rooms because of its following reason, It has less friability rate which means it can recycle and use again and again. Blasting BROWN ALUMINIUM OXIDE works best on metal surface. It also perform great on glass, marble, ceramic and granite. Brown Fused Alumina has less iron content. So It fit in perfectly for blasting where iron contamination on the non-ferrous metal surface is not acceptable,

5. Lime Stone

Lime stone (CaCO3) also called as calcium carbonate crystals are naturally found minerals. Those are white in colour and soft in nature. Since its soft in nature and low aggressive, Lime stone cannot be used in hard surfaces. Also the blasting process produce lot of dust. So only wet blasting is recommended to reduce the dust. In sand blasting application Lime stone is mainly Used for removing paint from brickwork and timber and existing coatings from galvanised surfaces. Only crushed lime stone granules are used for blasting, For the best results a steep (60 degrees) cone blast pot is required to ensure consistent flow with this lightweight material.

6. SC Ball

4_6_SC Ball
STEEL COMPOUND BALL or SC BALL has stable molecular structure is made out of molten steel slag. Its manufactured through Slag Quenching Technology (SQT) Ingot steel with less iron content is mixed with quartz sand and cement, Which uplifts its properties and allow for various uses SC Balls are pollution free, eco-friendly and cost effective abrasive that used for sand blasting. As the material is cheaper when comparing to other abrasive, its popularity is growing among users. Its used for various applications in surface preparation industry, Few notable advantages for SC balls are consistency , no impurities after blasting, Its can also used by mixing with other abrasives( if necessary), Hardness ranges from 6.5 Mohs to 7.0 Mohs. Its used in Ship buildings, bridges, tanks, Pipeline etc..

7. Anthracite

Anthracite is nothing but hard coal, Its main purpose is water filtration or water treatment. Water pollution and scarcity is the biggest challenge of our time. High quality anthracite is a solution for the water pollution. Its also used process sewage water, industrial water, swimming pool etc., The production of filtration‐grade anthracite is based on a thermally treated lignite (type H) and a natural anthracite (type N) which are crushed and screened. Filtration‐grade anthracite is used in nearly all water treatment plants, notably in multi‐layer filtration combined with Filcom’s calibrated high‐grade filter sand. Origin of our Anthracite is from Netherlands
