Major Industries & Applications
ALLTEK delivers a superior surface finish
ALLTEK’s garnet grains clean deep into cavities and pitted areas down to bare metal, removing all rust, soluble salts and other contaminants for a surface that is virtually free of embedments, rogue peaks, and troughs. ALLTEK garnet blasting abrasives improve coating adhesion and coating life by producing a clean substrate with a uniform surface profile
ALLTEK can be used on a variety of substrates
ALLTEK is ideal for use on steel, aluminum and other sensitive substrates.
ALLTEK low dusting offers better visibility and safety
BARTON garnet is a 100% natural, nonferrous inert mineral with <0.1% respirable crystalline silica and no heavy metals. It produces less dust than many other blasting abrasives, resulting in improved visibility, less disruption to adjoining work areas, and safer working conditions. ALLTEK alluvial garnet poses little or no health or environmental risks.
ALLTEK is available in a variety of grades
You can select from two (2) Grades of ALLTEK alluvial garnet blasting abrasives. Both are manufactured under tight QC/QA controls and guaranteed to meet BARTON’s high standards.
BARTON garnet blasting abrasives also meet all the current industry standard, including U.S. Navy MIL-A-22262B(SH), SSPC-AB 1(Type 1, Class A), QPL Listed and CARB certified.
A workhorse grade used for new steel and maintenance work on coatings up to 20 mils. Typically produces a 2.5-3.5 mil profile on steel.*
Ideal for steel, aluminum and other sensitive substrates. The preferred abrasive for most vapor-blasting applications. Typically produces a 2.0-2.8 mil profile on steel.*
Standard Packaging: 55-lb. paper bags, 2,200-lb. and 4,400-lb. bulk bags.
