An abrasive is a hard material (7 to 9 Mohs) which wears down other, softer materials.  The effectiveness of an abrasive depends on the hardness, shape and density of its grains, as well as the size of its grains.  The smaller the grain, the slower its activity but the less it cuts into the material.  Conversely, the larger the grain, the bigger the scratches left. 

Euroquartz has several types of abrasives:
• Corundum
• Glass beads
• Slag called “Abrasil” by Euroquartz

Brown Corundum

The sharp edges of its grains make it more abrasive.  Plus corundum’s main characteristic is its hardness (9 Mohs) which makes it particularly suitable for treating and cleaning different surfaces through the compressed air method.


• Works faster
• Reduced consumption
• Less dust (compared to slag)
• No cleaning required after treatment
• Good roughness of treated surfaces
• Duty cycle varies between 8 and 20 times

• Treating and cleaning different surfaces (rust removal, depolishing, engraving, roughening, etc.).

• Non-slip treatment of surfaces
