GMA ToughBlast enters navy shipbuilding

GMA ToughBlast™ garnet abrasives are being supplied for navy shipbuilding at Newport News Shipbuilding since last year.

As the most versatile abrasive product from our engineered range for various surface preparation applications, GMA ToughBlast™ is a unique blend of both GMA's alluvial and hard rock garnet.

Newport News Shipbuilding (NNS) in the USA is the sole designer, builder and refueler of U.S. Navy aircraft carriers and one of two providers of U.S. Navy submarines.

The company is the largest shipbuilding company in the country. NNS also builds the most advanced ships in the world using their expertise in nuclear propulsion, naval design and manufacturing.

The NNS supply contract was secured by our distributor BlastOne International and it provides good exposure for GMA’s abrasive products in this specialized industry. Additionally, BlastOne has worked with the technical division at NNS and conducted detailed blasting trials between GMA ToughBlast™ and competitor products to demonstrate the performance and true value of GMA ToughBlast™.
