Zirblast

Zirblast (zirconium silicate, ceramic abrazívum) is produced by the electro thermic fusion zirconium oxide and silicon. Zirblast is denser than glass abrasives, therefore, more effective and thus a lower density than steel abrasives, so there is no distortion of the surface.

Applications: cleaning mold, boilers, heat exchangers, tanks, pipelines, nuclear reactor parts, locks, stainless steel materials used in food processing etc.
