The Quality of Your Abrasive Impacts Your Operating Efficiency

Every day we talk to owners, operators and buyers who are looking for ways to improve their production efficiencies. Understanding and using the right-quality abrasive can deliver optimum performance, regardless of the application. BARTON garnet is the finest-quality abrasive in the market today. It is proven to be more consistent, cleaner, and produce less dust than any other mineral abrasive.

In addition, our strict quality-control processes reduce the risk factors caused by product moisture, excess fines and inconsistent particle size from compromising your production performance.

BARTON Quality Increases Waterjet Cutting Efficiency

In waterjet operations, lower-quality abrasives can cause clogging and affect the precision of the cut, cutting speed, kerf and the amount of abrasive used. BARTON garnet abrasives eliminate these issues and are proven to deliver more operating efficiency through:

  • Faster, cleaner cutting.
  • Smoother, more precise edges.
  • Consistent particle size.
  • Reduced downtime due to clogging.
  • Less dusting.

BARTON Quality Saves Blasting Time, Improves Productivity

Surface preparation with lower-quality materials can affect not only speed and performance but also safety and the worker environment. BARTON garnet blast media is proven to remove surface materials faster and provide a better surface finish than other blasting abrasives. Buying BARTON garnet sand reduces the health and environmental risks such as exposure to respirable quartz. Our garnet media maximizes operating efficiency through:

  • Blasting is completed more quickly.
  • Less dust for a safer work environment.
  • Uniform surface finish and profile.
  • Better coating adhesion.
