To cut through metal or stone in waterjet applications, or to remove surface contaminants using abrasive blasting, the media used must be extremely hard. And that’s what you get with BARTON garnet abrasives. Scoring between 7.5 and 8.5, it is high on the Mohs scale of mineral hardness, created in 1812 by the German mineralogist Friedrich Mohs. As the hardest known naturally occurring substance, diamond is at the top of the scale, among ten minerals that are all readily available.
The BARTON brand means you are getting the world’s premier garnet abrasive for waterjet applications that require the fastest, deepest and straightest-cutting performance. In abrasive blasting, it delivers faster cleaning, less dust and impeccable surface quality.
