Bead Blast Media Recommendation

Hi There,

I have access to a sand blasting setup, however, I need to provide my own media. Can anyone recommend a brand suited for cleaning quartz (and harder)?

Thanks,

Kirk

You don't want to use sand, at least not quartz sand. For cleaning quartz your best bet will be glass beads of 200 mesh and finer.

Sorry - I was using the term 'sand' too loosely. smiling smiley It's actually a dental technician's setup. Thanks for the tip, Rock!
