Waterjet cutting

The addition of an abrasive material increases the power of high-pressure waterjet cutters, delivering the strength to cut almost any material.

While cutting with water works for soft materials, the addition of an abrasive turns the waterjet into a modern machining tool for all materials. A mix of high-pressure water and abrasive for the purpose of wet blasting creates outstanding results - with relatively small amounts of abrasive it’s possible to cut hard materials such as steel and concrete, but also titanium, aluminium, glass, and stone.

An important benefit of the water jet is the ability to cut material without interfering with its inherent structure, as there is no heat-affected zone. Minimizing the effects of heat allows metals to be cut without harming or changing intrinsic properties. Sharp corners, bevels, pierce holes, and shapes with minimal inner radii are all possible. Water jet cutters are also capable of producing intricate cuts in material. With specialized software and 3-D machining heads, complex shapes can be produced.

Minersiv® garnet is the perfect abrasive for waterjet cutting, ideal for cutting through thicker materials like metal, stone and some plastics. Minersiv® is available in two different mesh sizes - #80 and #120 - depending on your needs.


AbraCut® is made of garnet, a naturally occurring mineral that is non- toxic, chemically inert and contains no free quartz. It is perfect for blast cleaning stone, concrete and steel, and for the removal of mill scale, rust, old paint and dirt.

Abracut® is suitable for surface preparation standards SA-3, SA-2½, SA-2 and SA-1 (sweep blasting). It is also used in blast rooms, cabinets and for wet / damp blasting systems. Abracut® is suitable for blasting thermally-treated/galvanised materials and for façade cleaning. It can also be used to clean concrete. Furthermore it is widely used for high pressure waterjet cutting as well as for water filtration.


Minersiv® is a garnet abrasive specially developed as a high-pressure waterjet cutting media. Minersiv® garnet is re-dried and re-screened at our Hamburg facility to obtain optimal grain size distribution and moisture content and to guard against possible contaminants.

Minersiv® garnet is available in #80 and #120 mesh.
