Virgin, brown Aluminium Oxide Grit. >95% purity. As an angular, durable blasting abrasive, aluminium oxide (or aluminium oxide) can be recycled many times. It is the most widely used abrasive grain in sand blast finishing and surface preparation because of its cost, longevity and hardness. Harder than other commonly used blasting materials, aluminium oxide grit powder penetrates and cuts even the hardest metals and sintered carbide.
Aluminium oxide used as a grinding and polishing media is a cost effective and efficient media for tumbling operations that require quick edge rounding, surfacing finishing or cleaning.
Approximately 50% lighter than metallic media, aluminium oxide abrasive grain has twice as many particles per Kg. The fast-cutting action minimizes damage to thin materials by eliminating surface stresses caused by heavier, slower cutting media.
Grit Powder Applications
Aluminium oxide grit powder has a wide variety of applications, from cleaning engine heads, valves, pistons and turbine blades in the aircraft industry to lettering in monument and marker inscriptions. It is also commonly used for matte finishing, as well as cleaning and preparing parts for metallising, plating and welding.
Aluminium oxide abrasive grain is the best choice for an abrasive sand blasting and polishing grain as well as for preparing a surface for painting.
Brown Aluminium Oxide
As a premier aluminium oxide abrasive grain supplier, we recommend using virgin, brown aluminium oxide for optimal performance versus reprocessed or re-manufactured product. Virgin, brown aluminium oxide contains less than 1.5% free silica and is therefore safer to use than sand.
The grit size is consistent and cuts much faster than sand, leaving a smoother surface. Generally, the larger the grit size, the faster aluminium oxide will cut.
