Niagara Falls, NY, 14302

Press release date: April 1, 2014

When you are blasting a work piece, the abrasive grain should hit the piece and leave little trace except for the expected profile you're trying to achieve. However, if you are using a lower quality blasting abrasive with a lower bulk density and more fines, you may not be getting a very clean profile. A low quality abrasive can leave impingements upon the surface of the piece. Fine impingements, that become embedded in the surface by either fines or low bulk density grains, can introduce iron or other unwanted contaminents into the profile of the piece and can lead to serious coating failure. If the coating is essential to the performance of the finished piece and you are concerned about how your coatings are adhering, you should learn about the benefits of using a higher quality blasting grain.

For more information on how bulk density and fines might be affecting your work, please contact Washington Mills today at or 508-839-6511 to learn about our high quality blasting grains.
