Abrasive Blasting Media
Glass Bead, Ground Glass, Aluminum Oxide, Walnut Shells, Silicone Carbide and Soda Media
Media Blaster Abrasive Material
In order to get the best media blasting results, you're going to need the right abrasive media. Using too strong a media for certain metals or parts can score and scuff the metal, while too delicate a media will do an inadequate job or take more time. Whatever you need for rust and paint removal, Eastwood has it in the right quantity. We sell 50-pound bags of media for use with pressure blasters, soda blasters, blast cabinets and any other Eastwood media blaster.
The Right Sandblaster Media for Your Needs
Each of the abrasive media products we sell has certain properties that make them ideal for various applications. Ground glass media a non-hazardous substitute for silica sand that works as an all-around product for paint and light rust removal. If you have heavier rust or need to do glass etching, go with silicon carbide or aluminum oxide, which both have sharp edges to cut through top coats. Our glass beads are made for use on softer metals such as aluminum, while walnut shells won't run the risk of scratching surfaces if they're missed during clean-up.
Soda Blasting Media
Baking soda is baking soda, right? Not when it comes to media blasting. We have multiple formulations for when you need to strip sheet metal or chrome. Our medium maintenance soda crystals are made for standard jobs, while XL crystals will take off heavy coatings. If you're dealing with a lot of rust, load up your blaster with an 80/20 mixture of soda and aluminum oxide to give it that extra non-damaging power.
