All products in our expendable abrasive range comply with ISO standards ISO 11126 and 11127 and contain less than 1% free crystalline silica.

Our expendable abrasives are mainly produced from carefully selected secondary raw materials. These are by-products of other industrial processes - reusing them saves valuable primary resources.

The expendable range includes:

  • Iron silicate (copperslag / nickelslag): NAstra®, Abragrit, Fajalit and OK-Grit
  • Calcium silicate (iron furnace slag): Scorex®, ScorexPlus
  • Aluminium silicate (coal slag): Vasilgrit®, Vasilfine
  • Garnet
  • See our expendable abrasives products.

Products

Nastra

Abragrit

Abragrit is an iron silicate grit.

Asilit

Asilit

The fine blasting abrasive Asilit is an aluminum silicate and is especially suitable for the gentle cleaning of highly sensitive façades.

Afesikos

Afesikos

The iron-free aluminum silicate Afesikos is the ideal expendable blasting abrasive for particularly sensitive surfaces that must not come into contact with iron during the blasting process.

Asilikos

Asilikos

The expendable blasting abrasive Asilikos is manufactured from mineral, environmentally friendly slag tap granulate – an aluminum silicate.

Fajalit

Fajalit

Fajalitis a granulated iron silicate material extracted at Boliden’s Rönnskär copper production facility in Sweden through a unique process called ‘fuming’ whereby the silicate is exposed to high temperatures, resulting in a very pure product.

Nastra

NAstra

NAstra is an iron silicate blast cleaning abrasive.

OK-grit

OK-grit

OK-grit is a granulated iron silicate. It is an iron silicate blast cleaning abrasive made with nickelslag from the Boliden Harjavalta nickel smelter in Finland where it is pre-screened.

Scorex

Scorex

Scorex is a blast cleaning grit made of iron furnace slag, also called calcium silicate.

ScorexPlus

ScorexPlus

ScorexPlus is a blast cleaning grit made of a carefully constructed blend of high quality iron furnace slag and recycled sodium silicate glass.

Vasilfine

Vasilfine

Vasilfine is a fine aluminium silicate (micro coal slag) abrasive suitable for dry, wet, damp and slurry blast cleaning and for special blast cleaning systems such as Torbo, IBIX etc.

Asilikos

Vasilgrit

Vasilgrit is an aluminium silicate blast cleaning abrasive made of coal slag from coal fired power stations.
