Crushed Glass

Crushed Glass


Crushed Glass is a 100% recycled abrasive product that can be used in a wide variety of applications. It cuts through mill scale and rust, providing a uniform mil profile while providing lower particle embedment than most other abrasives. This low-dusting abrasive enhances the natural luster of the surface without discoloration.

Common Uses:

  • Architectural precast & concrete applications
  • Brick & limestone restoration work
  • Bridge construction, steel fabrication
  • Pipelines & refineries
  • Shipyards
  • Wet abrasive blasting (slurry/vapor blasting)
