Benefits of Glass Abrasives

Recycled glass abrasives benefit industries in several ways.

  • Cleaner: Our abrasives are manufactured from 100% recycled glass. It directly helps reduce landfill waste and limits the use of more toxic slags. Non-reactive and inert, it can be used near and around water. It also doesn’t require post-blast cleaning.

  • Safer: Contains less than 1% free silica and Beryllium is not listed on SDS

  • High Performance: Crushed glass delivers a natural whiter metal finish. It causes significantly less embedment issues—up to five times less than slags and many other expendable abrasives. The dust produced when using glass abrasives is translucent which can allow for increased visibility and operator production, when compared to other abrasives. Our abrasives are also QPL Approved (Mil-A-22262B) and CARB approved at select plants.
