Benefits Applications • Similar hardness to many slags, 6.0 on Mohs Scale • Lighter weight than many slags, allowing for increased consumption efficiency. Contractors report using up to 40% less glass than slags or other mineral abrasives. • Recommend to use at 90 PSI for best results and increased energy savings. • Glass delivers very low particle embedment (less than 2%) which produces a whiter (SP-10) finish to the substrate. • Superior rust-back performance vs. mineral/slag abrasives. • Reduced disposal costs due to less weight and consumption. • Approved for use on QPL under Mil-A-22262B (select product and plants only) Safety/Environment • 100% recycled material which is diverted directly from landfills. • Glass is chemically non toxic and inert. Can be used near water. • No detectable CRYSTALLINE SILICA • No detectable Heavy or Toxic metals such as arsenic, beryllium, cadmium, etc. which are commonly found in coal-slags, copper-slags, and many mineral abrasives like garnet and staurolite.* OSHA list of Heavy & Toxic Metals • Our Coarse & Medium products are approved on the California Air Resource Board’s List of ABRASIVES CERTIFIED FOR DRY OUTDOOR BLASTING UNDER EXECUTIVE ORDER G-06-053 • Glass is listed on the EPA’s Comprehensive Procurement Guidelines for Blasting Grit. • Numerous government studies in the U.S. and Europe have confirmed the environmental and work safety and effectiveness of using recycled glass abrasives.* • NIOSH report on Evaluation of Substitute Abrasives for Silica Sand—See Page 142 of report for Key Conclusions on Industrial-Hygiene Related Issues on benefits of crushed glass. .
