Aluminum oxide has long been a popular abrasive choice for sandblast and surface preparation when it is desired to avoid contamination and corrosion of parts. Aluminum Oxide is also a cost effective blasting abrasive due to the fact that it can be recycled and reclaimed for multiple passes in a blasting process. Aluminum Oxide is a harder abrasive than most, resulting in less shatter of the particles which results in lower dust levels.
Aluminum oxide is characterized by its superior hardness and strength. It can be found in applications ranging from anti-slip surfaces, industrial applications as a blasting media, and as a raw material in refractoriness. It is designed for abrasive pressure blasting of almost any type of substrate: glass, granite, marble, and steel. Due to its ability to deeply etch it is used in the preparation of surfaces prior to painting or coatings.
Mythri Metallizing recommends aluminum oxide blasting for industries that are looking for cleaning, peening and matte finishing on metal surface for further process of coating or painting.
