Maxworth Minerals is one of the largest suppliers of Garnet Abrasives. Garnet is a semi-precious stone that is derived from mined Almandite and Andradite mineral deposits. After extraction, it is processed and then screened to the grade desired.
At Maxworth, we’ve named our minerals A1- simply because they are the best in the market! We offer our customers three grades of garnet, based on the end user requirements – A1 Garnet, A1 Garnet Super and A1 Garnet Premium. The qualities of each grade are outlined in the following table.
Sand blasting: Abrasive blasting at high pressure is commonly used against an object to smoothen out a rough surface. Sand blasting describes the action of launching very fine components of the material at high-speed, in order to clean up or etch a surface. Shot blasting is used for blasting metal. Mobile shot blasting machines are most commonly used for blasting drums, floors or walls.
Sandblasting is typically used for two different applications.
- For cleaning a surface of something that has a lot of dirt attached to it which is difficult to remove through normal cleaning methods.
- To carve or etch words or a design into glass or similar materials.
During the process, many sizes as well as types of sandblasting equipment and supplies like abrasives, nozzles, blast cabinets, blast rooms, portable sand blaster, part washers, sponge blast and air supplied hoods are used. Considerable expertise is required to carry out this process with efficiency.
To carry out abrasive blasting requires the use of specialized sand blasting equipment such as pressure blasters, blast cabinets and blast rooms. Dust and dirt is removed and cleaned by propelling the blast abrasives through a specially designed blast gun.
Water jet cutting: Garnet grains are among the toughest minerals in the world, as the material has withstood the test of time- being weathered and eroded over thousands of years! Our Garnet ranks high among the world’s best waterjet abrasives in terms of speed of cutting and consumption of abrasive. There is no interruption in the cutting process and this reduces cutting time, increasing productivity and leading to outstanding performance in waterjet cutting applications.
