A new abrasive that will be available this spring is comprised of 100 percent recycled glass, making it safer for workers and the environment, according to manufacturer Strategic Materials (Houston, Texas).

TruAbrasives, the new line of air abrasive product from Strategic Materials, is made from 100 percent recycled glass.

TruAbrasives is a new line of air blast abrasive product, taking the place of New Age Blast Media, a previous brand that Strategic Materials acquired in 2015. New Age Blast Media will be phased out over the next year, the company says.

Worker Health Benefits

Because it is made of crushed glass, Strategic Materials says, the new abrasive does not carry some of the risks associated with other abrasives, which can put workers in danger of health problems from respirable crystalline silica and metals like beryllium.

Additionally, because the glass the abrasive is made of is recycled, the company points out that it brings environmental benefits with it.

Strategic Materials says the new product was tested extensively and developed for performance and quality.

“We’ve always believed crushed glass abrasive is the future for the surface preparation industry, and that’s why we continue to invest in it,” said Denis Suggs, president and CEO of Strategic Materials. “Our expertise in processing glass makes us well suited to bring value to the industry and elevate glass abrasive offerings.”

The product will be available in April, according to Strategic Materials.

Glass can contain heavy metals that can impact stainless steel in certain conditions (SCC). Will these abrasives be analyzed so that these issues can be evaluated or just not recommended for use on stainless steel?

If heavy metals are contained in glass at what levels so that contractors can provide the proper PPE for their employees and protection of the environment?
