White aluminum oxide (or white aluminium oxide) grit is a 99.5% ultra pure grade of blasting media. White alox is increasingly being used in critical, high-performance microdermabrasion equipment. It’s variety of grit sizes attainable make it optimal for both traditional microdermabrasion processes as well as high-quality exfoliating creams.
Advantages of White Aluminum Oxide Abrasive
White alox is an extremely sharp, long-lasting blasting abrasive that can be recycled many times after the initial media blasting. It is the most widely used abrasive in blast finishing and surface preparation because of its cost, longevity and hardness. Harder than other commonly used blasting materials, white aluminum oxide grains penetrate and cut even the hardest metals and sintered carbide.
50% lighter than metallic media & twice as many particles per pound. Fast-cutting action minimizes damage to thin materials by eliminating surface stresses caused by heavier, slower-cutting media blasting grits.
Applications for White ALOX Abrasive
White aluminum oxide blasting media has a wide array of applications, including cleaning
- engine heads
- turbine blades
Gret for the aircraft and automotive industries. White alox is also an excellent choice for preparing a hard surface for painting.
White alox contains less than 0.2% free silica and is therefore safer to use than sand. The grit size is consistent and cuts much faster than other sand blasting media, leaving a smoother surface.
