Abrasive media suppliers typically provide garnet to companies that specialize in or require sandblasting at the work site. Workers use garnet sandblasting to clean fiberglass and aluminum structures. Many workers prefer garnet to other abrasive materials because it is low-consuming and fast-cutting. For these reasons, garnet is also commonly used to remove rust, paint and mill scale from steel.
In addition to this, companies often use garnet to clean rust from tools or building structures exposed to water for extended periods of time. Some of these may even be permanent fixtures. Sometimes the cleaning is the end of the job. Other times, it is part of the preparation for either applying adhesives or a new coat of paint.
Some manufacturers also use garnet to make sandpaper. This is ideal for carpenters as the crushed garnet is sharp, making it great for sanding wood and creating a smooth finish. You can usually identify sandpaper made from garnet from the rough section, which is covered with reddish brown particles.
There are several other materials companies can rely on for sandblasting. So, what is it that makes garnet the best or only choice for certain jobs?
