Blast Media from Chemours
Chemours Company Starblast™ blasting abrasives are a loose blend of coarse and fine staurolite sands that are well-graded and have clean, rounded to sub-angular surfaces. Mined from Chemours’ mineral deposits in the southeastern United States, these naturally occurring sands are washed to ensure freedom from dirt, dust, and ultrafiness. Due to their density and hardness, Starblast™ abrasives are also effective in vapor blasting applications.
Features and Benefits
The Starblast™ line of abrasive blasting material offers many benefits over alternative options for sandblasting, water jet cutting, and vapor blasting. Starblast is California Air Resources Board (CARB) certified and SSPC AB-1 certified. It contains very low free silica—Starblast™ abrasive media is guaranteed to contain <3% free silica (typically <2%)
Additional benefits of Starblast™ abrasive media include:
- Greater blasting visibility due to minimal dust generation
- Lower labor costs through faster, more-efficient blasting
- Less material costs due to recyclability
- More uniform blasting pattern
- Sub-rounded to sub-angular grains result in less abrasive embedment
- Electrically nonconductive
Starblast™ blasting abrasives are a general-purpose abrasive media. They are used in steel fabrication and maintenance blasting to remove rust, mill scale, and weathered coatings as well as surface preparation of other substrates, such as aluminum, concrete, and stainless steel. Due to their density and hardness, Starblast™ abrasives are also effective in vapor blasting applications.
