IOGS Blasting Grade Garnet is used for different jobs and to create different surface profiles.
It is used in offshore MGS, general marine structural steel, oil storage tanks, ships, rail cars, containers (mild steel and stainless steel), high chrome / nickel steel, pipes and sites that requires low dust limits.
Four major Blasting grades listed below are produced by IOGS for Abrasive blasting for surface preparation.

Advantages of IOGS Blasting Grade Garnet

  • The combination of tough mineral structure and rapid setting results in lower levels of dust creation    during blasting
  • Superior surface profile – garnet grains create a uniform profile virtually free of embedment, providing an excellent Surface for coating adhesion
  • Cost-effective – highly effective, low consumption
  • Non-toxic – inert and natural, crystalline silica levels are less than 1%
  • Recyclable up to 5 times
  • Easy cleanup
  • Inert – will not interfere with your coatings
  • Non-porous – will not draw moisture
  • IOGS supplies about 30,000 MTS of Blasting Grade Garnet per-annum; the quality of the product has been approved by several Oil companies in Far-East, Middle-East and Europe.
