Garnet abrasive products

Garnet bonded and coated abrasives are used in the conditioning of metal, wood and synthetic surfaces from sanding and finishing to grinding and dimensioning.

Coarser garnet grains are particularly effective for removing multiple, heavy paint layers, as well as varnish and enamel from rough surfaces.

Medium-grade garnet is used most commonly in the grinding of softer metals or in stripping wood. These grains also work well in preparing slip-resistant surfaces and painted surfaces.

Finally, fine-grade garnet serves as a great finishing agent, helping to detail products and remove slight demarcations.
