U.S. Sieve Mesh Size
MIL Profile
-10m +50m
3.0 - 4.0
A versatile blend of sizes for depainting and rust removal on tanks, bridges, shipyards, with better scouring npower for corners, pits and weld seams.
-14m +60m
2.5 - 3.5
This workhorse blend is a great general abrasive for most depainting and rust removal, as well as blasting concrete for aggregate exposure, shipyard work, structural steel and tanks, etc.  Excellent for elastomeric coatings.
-25m +70m
1.5 - 2.5
Remarkably fast and aggressive for all types of finer blasting requiring a smooth, clean finish.  Makes a good surface for powder coating.
Super Fine
-60m +90m
Lighter duty fine blasting on substrates requiring minimal etching or profile such as aluminum or fiberglass.  Excellent for cleaning welds and bolt heads, spot cleaning and restoration work.
