Blast Media

Superior Surface Profiling:
Abrasive Blasting Media

The combination of the high density and physical properties of garnet, make it nature’s most efficient, effective and safe abrasive for both wet and dry blasting applications. Garnet blast media is derived from mined Almandine mineral deposits.


It’s the preferred choice for coating removal with highly effective properties for efficient removal, as well as low dust levels and easy cleanup. Get a superior surface profile for easy recoating with Shape Mined Materials garnet abrasives.

Highest Precision

Garnet is highly effective blast media

Highly Effective


The make-up of garnet is highly effective for removal of coatings, leaving an optimal surface profile for recoating.

Abrasive Blast Media



Garnet blast media is non-toxic, making containment easy and your working environment safe for your team and their surrounding environments.

Blast Media is recyclable



Garnet blast media can be recycled for easy disposal and future re-use.
