Detailed Product Description:
White aluminum oxide grit is a 99.5% ultra pure grade of blasting media.
It is being used increasingly in critical, high-performance microdermabrasion
equipment. The purity of this media along with the variety of grit sizes available
make it ideal for both traditional microdermabrasion processes as well as
in high-quality exfoliating creams.
This is an extremely sharp, long-lasting blasting abrasive that can be recycled
many times after the initial media blasting. It contains less than 0.2% free
silica and is therefore safer to use than sand. The grit size is consistent and
cuts much faster than other sand blasting media, leaving a smoother surface.
White aluminum oxide grit penetrates and cuts even the hardest metals
Including sintered carbide. It is about half the weight of metallic
media with twice as many particles per pound. The resulting fast
cutting action minimizes damage to thin materials by eliminating
surface stresses common with heavier, slower cutting media.
Aluminum oxide grit has a wide variety of applications, from cleaning
turbine blades in the aircraft industry to lettering in monument and
marker inscriptions. It is also commonly used for matte finishing,
as well as cleaning and preparing parts for metallizing, plating and
welding. Aluminum oxide is the best choice for preparing a surface
Suggested Air Pressure: 80-90 PSI max.

Be sure to wear appropriate respiratory protection.
Not recommended for surfaces which are to be left uncoated in use.
Abrasive particles can become imbedded and later sloughed off into
moving parts such as bearings.
