Syncgar™ is derived from mined Almandine mineral deposits which is the heaviest and hardest of the all garnet types, resulting in an ideal abrasive grain for blasting applications. Syncgar™ has sub angular shape leading to extremely fast cutting rates resulting in lower abrasive consumption. The high specific gravity of Syncgar™ , and its low breakdown rate, results in significantly reduced dust levels, ensuring good operator visibility and lesser risk to personnel or environmental contamination in surrounding areas when compared with other expendable minerallic abrasive media.
The low consumption rate and recyclability up to 5 times reduces the volume of waste for disposal. Being a naturally occurring mineral it is non-polluting to the environment. Syncgar™ can be used for preparation of steel and non ferrous metal surfaces prior to coating, as cutting media for water jet cutting machines, engraving of stone and glass, cleaning of concrete and brickwork, cleaning of components in contamination sensitive areas, and bonded and coated abrasives.
