♻ Recycled Glass Abrasive Media

100% Recycled Glass, leaving no material behind.

Sanblasting with Recycled Glass Grit

♻ Recycled Glass Abrasive Media

​Traditionally, materials such as coal slag or silica sand have been used for sandblasting. However, coal slag contains heavy metals and silica sand high amounts of silica - both are harmful to our respiratory systems.

Our recycled glass abrasive is washed, dry heat sterilised and finely graded producing a product of high quality. We are proud to use a material that we RECYCLE 100% of; abandoned by bottle recyclers & destined for landfill.

Our Recycled Glass Abrasive Media is a direct replacement for sand, slag and soda for a wide variety of blasting and surface preparations.


  • High quality, clean abrasive product

  • Non-reactive, chemically inert (Beryllium is not listed on our SDS)

  • No toxic metals released

  • Less dust than coal slag

  • Higher Cleaning Rate than coal slag

  • Manufactured British standard PAS 102

  • Translucent white dust for increased visibility

  • White post-blast finish
