NaturalGrit™ is produced in 3 types, Type A - Apricot; Type C - Corn Cob and Type W - Walnut. T he major advantage Natural - Grit™ has over more aggressive abrasives is that fragile compone - nts can be cleaned or deflashed without incurring any damage or etching on the underlying surface. The low oil content of Natural - Grit™ makes it an ideal abrasive for deflashing electronic compon - ents when no oil residue is permitted to remain on the parts.
The low oil content, along with its low combustion temperature, also makes NaturalGrit™ ideally suited for removing burnt on deposits from automobile super chargers and turbine blades, as an expendable blasting abrasive; the product simply burns off after blasting without leaving any residue. As such, the product finds applications in power generation stations, turbine overhaul factories and in the aerospace industry.
Both types A and W, the heaviest and the lightest respectively, of NaturalGrit™ are widely used for cleaning moulds, motor armatures and motor drives prior to rewinding. T ype C NaturalGrit™ is high absorbent and its main use is mass finishing processes for drying and absorbing water, oil or wax from processed parts and also for fine polishing or brightening of parts.
Being a naturally occurring agricultural product, no hazardous waste is produced by the abrasive, thus environmental concerns and disposal costs are negated.
