Crystalgrit is a blastcleaning abrasive made of the natural mineral specular hematite, a 100% inert form of iron oxide.
The sharp grains and the high specific density give a high cutting speed at a low consumption per m˛.
Specular hematite is also very suitable for ballasting purposes and non-skid flooring applications.
Unlike metallic abrasives, Crystal grit does not give rise to rust formation when used under damp or wet conditions. Hematite has strong water-repellent (hydrophobic) properties. As a consequence, a surface treated with Crystal grit will retain its quality before receiving its first coating. In some applications, you can wait several days!
