Fine Grade Crushed Glass Blasting Media – 1 Tonne Pallet (x40 25kg Bags)
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 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 sell glass blasting media from a variety of different manufacturers, with locations all around the country.
More efficient to use
Sustainable and environmentally friendly
Benefits of Glass Blast:
Efficiently Cleans steel, aluminum, wood, concrete, stone, fiberglass
Excellent replacement to silica sand
Excellent for use as a separator or barrier with concrete pavers and forms. A layer of 2040 crushed glass prevents concrete forms from sticking to each other during the curing process and can be swept into the grout cracks during installation
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
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 not
