Barton International



Founded in 1878, BARTON International is a family-owned company that has produced the world’s highest-quality garnet abrasives for six generations. Our Mil-Spec and CARB approved blasting abrasives provide superior safety and maximum productivity for surface prep applications.

BARTON garnet abrasives produce a clean surface with a uniform profile virtually free of particle embedment for better coating adhesion and longer coating life. Our garnet cuts fast and increases productivity while reducing abrasive consumption, leading to savings in shipping, handling and disposal. BARTON garnet produces less dust than many other blasting media, resulting in improved visibility, less disruption to adjoining work areas and safer working conditions.

BARTON garnet is a 100-percent natural, non-ferrous, inert mineral with <0.1 percent respirable crystalline silica and no heavy metals. Our blasting abrasives are QPL listed and meet all current industry standards, including SSPC AB-1 and US Navy Mil-A-22262B(SH).
