Expendable Abrasive

In stock

Abraclean and Hogg Blasting & Finishing Equipment stock a wide variety of shot blasting media to suit all budgets and requirements.

The best type of shot blast media used depends on the coating that needs removing, the substrate, the type of finish required, and any other special requirements. 

Expendable Shotblasting Abrasives such as Iron Silicate, Abrablast,and garnet are generally designed for site blasting. Typically this is open blasting using mobile blast pots, where the blast media is not recovered. Our blast media is safe, economical & effective for open media blasting, both wet and dry.


  • None of our blast media products contain 'free silica' which can occur when blasting with sand. 
  • Free Silica can cause Silicosis which is an irreverisble lung condition
  • The type of blasting media abrasive is usually chosen dependant on the material to be removed, the underlying substrate, and the type of finish required.
  • Available in either 20 kg or 25 kg bags depending on product
  • Discounted rates are available for full pallets of expendable abrasives - normally 1 Tonne
