RIVER GARNET SAND

River garnet sand is a type of garnet abrasive that has been deposited into rivers through natural weather processes. While not better than supreme garnet abrasive, river garnet abrasive is cheaper than regular garnet abrasive because it is readily available and is easier to produce. Like sea garnet, river garnet is constantly exposed to natural elements especially flow of river water and therefore has typically smaller mesh sizes and more rounded edges. River garnet also has some impurities but depending on where it is sourced, it may have lower chloride and salt content than sea garnet.

Garnet Sand for Sandblasting is the Optimum Abrasive for Most Applications.

  • Clean – Garnet abrasive sand produces less dust than other expendable abrasives, making it ideal for use in tanks and other confined spaces.
  • Cost-Effective – Garnet sand abrasive lasts a long time. Garnet Abrasive is reusable and can be re-used several times under the right conditions.
  • Optimum Surface Profile – Garnet abrasive creates a superior surface for adhesion coating.
  • Environmentally Friendly – Abrasive Garnet Sand is inert and non-toxic, making it safe for use around water bodies. It is also very easy to clean, while its durability reduces the generation of dust.
