18 SURFACE PREP 2018 COATINGSPROMAG.COM coating failure." Besides garnet, steel abrasives are another popular blast media choice based on steel 's high mass. is mass allows more energy to be transferred for cleaning as well as a longer lifespan. To that end, W Abrasives has created a new steel- grit product called Profilium for air blasting. e product, developed to ensure a more consistent surface profile, is heat treated through air quenching and has very low conductivity levels to minimize surface contamination, according to Iann Bouchard, sales manager for W Abrasives. ree different nominal sizes are available to achieve typical surface profiles of between 2 and 6 mils (50.8‒152.4 microns). For those wanting peak environmental performance, Sponge-Jet has engineered a line of composite abrasives incorporating micro-abrasive particles from synthetic sponge. e range of recyclable, dry, low-dust composites provides strong results for aggressive profiling and cleaning on sensitive substrates, and the synthetic sponge captures up to 95 percent of contaminants. W hen dealing with mid-to-large diameter pipe networks, the company recommends blasting its abrasives with the Sponge-Jet Robotica device, which mechanically moves Succeed at Surface Prep VENDOR TEAM Abrasives Inc.
