Aluminum Oxide

Aluminum Oxide Web Photo 2ALUMINUM OXIDE  ABRASIVE BLAST MEDIA is a durable, long-lasting grit used widely in abrasive blasting, grinding, surface preparation & blast cleaning. Brown Aluminum Oxide is obtained by a reduction fusion of high quality bauxites in electric arc furnaces to create a product with high toughness and hardness for effective industrial operations such as cleaning turbine blades & engine parts. It’s quick cutting action is effective even on blasting difficult to remove debris from hard metal surfaces. Aluminum Oxide grit is recommended for engraving monument markers and in anti-skid coatings. Also available, White Aluminum Oxide.
