10x Engineered Materials Abrasive Media
You want your abrasive material to do the heavy lifting for you, which is why you’re looking for one that can quickly cut through even the toughest substances like epoxy, powder coating, and rust. But beyond that, you need blast media that is safe for your crew and cost-effective. Now, you don’t have to choose between safety, profitability, and performance with 10x Engineered Materials.
What Are 10x Abrasives?10x abrasives are an innovative type of blast media in which the raw materials used to make it are from the minerals used in insulation. Byproducts are carefully extracted from the cast-off minerals and are then melted at extremely high temperatures and cooled to produce amorphous glass fibers. The result is a revolutionary type of safe, highly durable, incredibly effective blasting media.
Why Choose 10x Engineered Media?Compared to legacy materials like glass, plastic, coal slag, and garnet, what makes 10x Engineered Media such an excellent product? Let’s consider the benefits.
EffectivenessThe amorphous atom arrangement of the media provides a larger surface area than legacy media, meaning it will provide a more aggressive cut, while the strength of particles ensures they hold up against a variety of surfaces, prolonging their life and usage. You get the results you want in a shorter amount of time.
Safety10x abrasives surpass current safety standards set by both OSHA and the EPA and contain no free silica, no beryllium, and give off very little dust. Because they are engineered, they contain no crystalline structures, fracture planes, or contaminants.
Eco-FriendlyMade from minerals used in the manufacture of insulation, our engineering team takes what would normally be a waste by-product, and isolates, purifies, and classifies them into premium blast media. In addition to being sustainably sourced and manufactured, it meets some of the most strict guidelines in relation to air pollution, so it’s not only better for your team, it’s better for the environment.
CostCompared to mined blasting materials, 10x offers a lower operating cost. Not only does it hold up to being recycled and used repeatedly, it’s effectiveness allows your team to get the job done fast without sacrificing quality. We all know time is money, and 10x abrasives can save you both.
VersatilityWith four grit sizes available, you can find the ideal material for your next project. Choose from:
- 70/100 for lighter coatings, light corrosion, scale, and stone stenciling with up to a 2.5 mil surface profile;
- 40/70 for medium coatings, corrosion, and mill scale with up to a 4.0 mil profile;
- 20/70 for heavy coating, paint, and rust on steel, aluminum, and concrete;
- 20/40 for heavy coating, paint, and corrosion on steel and concrete
Uses and Applications for 10x Abrasives10x Abrasives is an all-purpose engineered blasting media that can be used in a variety of applications, including:
When you need to remove grease, dirt, rust, and other substances while achieving a slightly textured profile, 10x abrasives make it possible to do all your surface preparation in one single step.
