Benefits of Black Beauty Blasting Media

Silica has been linked with silicosis, a fatal lung disease. Adhering to the most stringent industry and environmental guidelines, Black Beauty products are preferred over silica sand due to their low dusting, low free-silica content. Black Beauty abrasives produce proven results for G&C customers, and our team of specialists can determine which product and grade is best suited to your application.

Additional Black Beauty abrasive benefits include:

  • Recycled, chemically inert, non-leachable ingredients.
  • High hardness ranging from 6 to 7 on Moh’s Scale.
  • Low dusting, making them ideal for congested or high-traffic workplace environments.
  • Angular particle shape that delivers fast cutting and high productivity.
  • Low grit transfer, producing clean surfaces and surface profiles.
