Garnet is a naturally occurring mineral. It is popular as an expendable blast media offering a cleaner application than traditional expendables, with improved cutting performance, compatibility to non-ferrous metals and low tendency to embedment. In 80 and 120 grades, the media is used extensively as a waterjet cutting media. The product is tested in accordance with ISO11126-10 and ISO11127-6 & 7 and is compliant with Rolls Royce CSS211 specification.
