Garnet for blasting is composed of granules Almandite.
One of the most hard and tough mineral known.
It allows to obtain, thanks to a low consumption, a high productivity and the possibility to be reused several times, blasting at a low cost.
1, And is composed of granules of garnet is the Almandite, one of the most hard and tough mineral known. It is a mineral belonging to the group of Garnets with chemical formula Fe3Al2(SiO4)3. Appears to be chemically inert, free of silica and free of any toxic metal, and therefore ensures a safe working environment with reduced waste disposal costs.
2, Being free of ferrite, is particularly suitable for blasting, dust-free, stainless steel, stainless steels, non-ferrous metals, wood, glass, marble, etc., as well as for the cleaning of the facades of the buildings.
3, Is characterized by toughness and hardness high (7.5/8.0 Mohs), Reusable from 5 to 10 times. without losing its exceptional cutting ability, good specific weight (4.1 kg/dm3), and a Low friability, All this allows to obtain, thanks to a low consumption, high productivity, and the possibility to be reused several times, blasting at a low cost.
4, The low friability (can be recycled from 5 to 10 times), and its hygroscopicity, it is also particularly suitable for cleaning with water jet at high pressure (1000bar / 15000psi), but especially for the idrotaglio (cut with water pressure 2700bar / 40000psi) of structural steel and natural stone slabs.
5, Shape: sharp edges, CHEMICAL FORMULA: Hardness: 7,5 - 8,0 Mohs, Weight spec. absolute: 4,10 Kg / dm3, specific Weight: 2,4 Kg / dm3, CHEMICAL ANALYSIS= SiO2: 36%, FeO: 33%, Al2O3: 20%, MgO: 7%, CaO: 1%, MnO: 1%, Silica-free < 1%, Chlorides < 25 ppm, mineral Analysis: almandite 97 - 98%, ilmenite < 1 - 2%, quartz < 1,0%, others < 0,5%, water Solubility: not soluble under standard conditions (20° C, distilled water), Conductivity: 10 - 15 ms/m (max 25 ms/m) acid Solubility: < 1%.
corresponds to ISO 11126-10 N/GA/G ensures a safe work environment meets all safety and health requirements
