Aluminum Oxide

Aluminum Oxide Abrasive MediaALUMINUM OXIDE  ABRASIVE BLAST MEDIA is a durable, long-lasting grit used widely in abrasive blasting, grinding, surface preparation & blast cleaning. We supply Aluminum Oxide which is produced 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 difficult to remove debris from hard metal surfaces. Aluminum Oxide grit is effective for engraving monument markers and in anti-skid / non-slip applications. Also available in pink and White Aluminum Oxide.
