ACP has again entered into an exclusive distribution agreement with GMA Garnet (M.E) FZE, a company registered in Dubai, U.A.E. to market and sell high quality Australian GMA Garnet Abrasive for surface preparation, used by many of our clients who are in EPC contracts/ fabrication work. ACP has supplied hundreds of tonnes of various GMA Garnet Abrasives of quality and unadulterated Australian origin as compared to some competitive brands available. Assarain supplied garnet abrasives are widely liked and many repeat orders are placed on Assarain especially for its very popular brands like GMA Premium Blast, GMA New Steel etc. GMA Garnet is a totally natural product, chemically inert and free of any toxic metals or crystalline silica. The main benefits of using Australian origin GMA Garnet abrasives for surface preparation are :
Cost effective Blast Cleaning:
You can quickly calculate the cost benefits of GMA Garnet over other abrasives by using Abrasive Blasting Calculator.
Blast cleaning with GMA Garnet means significantly lower dust emissions because of the inherent toughness of the material and rapid settling due to its high specific gravity. This ensures minimum disruption and danger to adjoining operations and improved operator visibility and safety.
GMA Garnet is very fast cutting due to the large number, speed and shape of grains impacting the surface. The acceleration and speed of grain, in air stream is a function of the inertia and hence the size of the grain matters. Smaller grains accelerate much more readily, thus imparting higher impact energy to the surfaces resulting in a superior cleaning rate – usually twice the Sqm/Hr of conventional abrasives.
Its unique grain size ensures that there are many more active grains impacting on the surface resulting in greatly reduced abrasive consumption.
Superior Surface Quality:
GMA Garnet grains clean deep into the cavities and pitted areas down to the bare metal, thoroughly removing all rust, soluble salts and other contaminations. The blasted surface is free of embedment and free of rogue peaks and troughs. SA3 White Metal is effortlessly achieved. A surface profile of 50-70 microns is easily achieved along with a much greater number of peaks per unit area.
Improved Health & Safety:
It is a non-toxic. There is no silicosis hazard, leachable heavy metals or radioactive contaminants. Lower consumption and recyclability result in greatly reduced disposal volumes of non-toxic product.
It is suitable for multiple usages. It can be recycled 5 times or more without losing its superior cutting ability.
Available grades of GMA Garnet are as follows:
- GMA New Steel Garnet
