Recyclable abrasives

Recyclable abrasives are used in compressed air blast cleaning applications as well as in wheel blasting machines in enclosed recycling systems. This includes blast rooms, cabinets or other installations in which the abrasive material can be collected, cleaned and reused multiple times.

There are two different kinds of recyclable abrasives; the so-called metallic abrasives, including steel grit, steel shot and chilled iron grit, and the non-metallic abrasives (or mineral abrasives) such as brown and white fused aluminium oxide, sintershot and sintergrit.

The recyclable range includes:

  • Aluminium oxide (corundum) white or brown
  • Chilled iron grit
  • Steel shot and Steel grit
  • Sinter shot and Sinter grit

See our recyclable abrasives products.

Please also see our range of expendable abrasives and special abrasives.

Aluminium oxide brown

Aluminium Oxide ELK / NK is an electro-fused aluminium oxide with very hard and tough grains.

Brown Fused Aluminium Oxide can be used for compressed air blast cleaning in blast rooms, cabinets etc. Excellent for recycling.

Aluminium oxide white

Aluminium Oxide ELK / E is an electro-fused aluminium oxide with very hard and tough grains. Compressed air blastcleaning in shotblast rooms, cabinets etc. Excellent for recycling.

Chilled Iron grit

Chilled iron grit is produced from carefully selected alloy free iron scrap that is recarbonised in a hot blast cupola. The shot obtained by this process, is then crushed into grit particles.

Chilled iron grit is suitable for compressed air blasting in shot-blast rooms with proper recycling and dust-extraction equipment.

Steel grit

Steel abrasives are produced with super eutectoid medium alloy steel. The percentage of Sulphur, phosphorus and chromium content is low. Abrasives are heat treated, applying the most modern procedure. The micro structure of high-carbon heat treated steel abrasives is a fine and homogeneous martensite.

Steel grit is suitable for compressed air blasting in enclosed recycling systems, such as shotblast rooms, cabinets etc.

Steel shot

Steel abrasives are produced with super eutectoid medium alloy steel. The percentage of sulphur, phosphorus and chromium content is low. Abrasives are heat treated, applying the most modern procedure. The micro structure of steel high-carbon heat treated abrasives is a fine and homogeneous martensite.

Steel shot is suitable for use in impeller-type wheel-machines as well as for compressed-air blasting in enclosed recycling systems, such as shotblast rooms, cabinets etc.

Sinter grit

Sintergrit is composed of specially selected minerals, and sintered at a high temperature. Sintergrit is produced by crushing sintershot, thus having the same chemical properties. Sintergrit is a hard and tough material with a high density and very good recycling properties. It contains no free iron and does not react with water.

Blastcleaning of steel/concrete/stone surfaces. It is suitable for pressure and vacuum blasting. It gives a uniform and clean surface and is highly suitable for removal of rust, paint and mill-scale from metal surfaces, as well as for stone cutting. The material can be recycled for a numerous times and is suitable for stainless steel and aluminium surfaces. Highly efficient in blast cabinets.
