Garnet 55 lb Bag, 80 Grit (Med. Coarse)

Model # BC-0700

  • Garnet 80 Mesh (Medium Coarse)
  • 55 lb Bag

The blast media GMA Garnet™, consists of totally natural Almandine Garnet, known for its natural hardness, durability and abrasive characteristics. It is free of any heavy metals or toxic components and meets all Occupational Safety and Health Administration requirements (OSHA).

It is a very hard and heavy abrasive that can significantly increase the blaster’s productivity by combining high efficiency and speed of action for a broad range of cleaning and stripping applications. Its performance compares to synthetic, more expensive media. However, its natural composition makes it a more environmentally friendly alternative that can also be repetitively reused, allowing for significant savings, compared to low recyclability media.


  • Shipyards, new building, conversion and repair, including anti-magnetic and other special steels, as well as aluminum superstructures and aluminum and fiberglass hulls
  • Oil & petrochemical industry, maintenance work in refineries and storage tanks as well as onshore and offshore installations
  • Construction and maintenance of chemical plants, nuclear and fossil power stations, gas and sewerage plants, desalination and industrial plants
  • Construction and maintenance of containers and tanks for trucks rail as well as rail cars and passengers trains
  • Bridge and weir locks, stainless steel
  • Building industry and structural steel
  • Stone building facades and monuments
  • Non-ferrous surfaces and turbine blades


  • Low Dusting – Significantly increasing blaster’s visibility
  • High Productivity – Its toughness and aggressiveness allow for quick and efficient action, which increases significantly the blaster’s productivity and reduces abrasive consumption
  • Low Consumption – Its unique grain size ensures that there are many more active grains impacting on the surface resulting in greatly reduced abrasive consumption
  • Chemical properties – chemically inert and non-magnetic, it is versatile for a variety of processes
  • Superior Surface Quality – Its grains clean deep into the cavities and pitted areas down to the bare metal, thoroughly removing all rust, soluble salts and other contaminants. The blasted surface is free of embedment, rogue peaks and troughs. SP-10 White Metal is effortlessly achieved
  • Safe for users – It is non-toxic and free of heavy metals or radioactive contaminants
  • Highly Recyclable – GMA GarnetTM can be recycled 5 to 10 times without losing its superior cutting ability, which results in lower abrasive consumption and lower purchase and disposable costs
