New Sand-blasting Abrasive Introduced by Blast-One

Press Release
Wednesday, August 15, 2012

Blast-One introduces Speedblast™ abrasive to the US market.

Blast-One International recently debuted its Speedblast™ abrasive to the industrial sandblasting and painting industry, announcing the abrasive can reduce consumption and waste costs by 66% while increasing blasting speed up to 43%.    Such output improvements are the result of the mineral quality, hardness, shape and processing of the abrasive “gem” grains. It is a pure natural mineral, completely inert and silica free.

Blast-One Vice President Brad Gooden said, “In a tough economy, Speedblast™ is a complete game changer. Our clients are winning more jobs because they can get the job done faster, cleaner, and can drop their total blasting costs by a staggering 39% overnight.”

Compared with other commonly used industry abrasives, Speedblast™ is said to have a lower breakdown rate when impacting the steel, thus reducing dust clouds while improving visibility and air quality. Speedblast™ is “low dusting because each grain is extremely tough. The abrasive is also washed in spring water during processing to ensure it is clean of impurities such as chlorides (salt), silt, or clay. The final result is less dust, greater visibility, and less clean-up.”
