Offering an Array of Abrasive Blasting Media for Metal Surfaces


All Sizes Available

Cincinnati Abrasive carries a large variety of abrasive media.

Abrasive Blasting Media is an abrasive that cleans, removes, finishes, and prepares a surface. The media is propelled with the use of compressed air, or via centrifugal force by a bladed wheel.

The media impacts the surface to be finished to erode any unwanted materials or to prep a surface for a coating to be applied after blasting. The process is most utilized in preparing surfaces for coating by stripping any rust, scale, unwanted paint, or contaminants to improve the cosmetics of the surface or improve adhesion for coatings.

Abrasive blasting media is often referred to, incorrectly, as sandblasting media. Silica sand should never be used in blasting processes.
