Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works well I needed something that was non-aggressive. I tried the black beauty ultra fine, as it was the only thing I could get local, but it was way too aggressive. This product gets rid of the rust, but keeps the finish smooth.

Questions & Answers

What happens if you exceed the 60 psi rating when blasting?

Asked by: Stanley Spadowski
I just recently asked Eastwood tech support this same question and I was told that instead of the blast media bouncing back as it hits the surface of what's being blasted, it shatters and turns to a fine dust quickly destroying and wasting the blast media you spent money on. It's unlikely the higher pressure will do damage to what you're blasting with glass bead media. I initially didn't follow the instructions of 60 psi maximum on the regulator gauge with the gun triggered and went through a full bag quickly, turning it to a fine powder blasting in the range of 100-120 psi.

What is the best media to use in a B60 blast cabinet for prepping aluminum wheels for powder coating ?

Asked by: Chad77
For a softer metal like this, we typically recommend Ground Glass or Glass bead as other media would be too aggressive.

Do you recommend the 70/100 or 100/170 for Glass bead-blasting ordnance stainless steel to achieve a more non-reflective satin stainless look? I'm trying to minimize hand prints while also trying to avoid a rough-feeling finish. Many thanks!

Asked by: Just An Old Coot
The 70/100 would be a more aggressive media. The 100/170 would be the better choice between the two medias.

If you have a foot switch it is recommended to 110 PSI. So the media recommends 60 PSI. Do you set the PSI before the foot switch or between the foot switch and the cabinet?

Asked by: Pappys Restoration
