Crushed Glass Blasting Media

Crushed glass blast media is a fast cleaning, aggressive, low cost, single use abrasive that is made from recycled glass.  It directly reduces landfill waste and limits the use of more toxic slags (non-reactive and inert, it can be used near and around water).  Crushed glass contains less than 1% free silica and does not contain toxic metals associated with other abrasives. It also delivers a natural whiter metal finish. The dust produced when using glass abrasives is translucent which allows increased visibility and operator production.
