ecoblast® shares similar physical and chemical properties with almandine garnet. No wonder it performs like garnet.
ecoblast® and garnet have unique differentiating qualities compared to commonly used mineral slags.
ecoblast is Harder
- Lower calcium oxide (CaO) levels
- Lower silicon dioxide (SiO2)
ecoblast is more Abrasive
- Agressively abrasive due to high aluminium oxide (Al2O3)

An evolution from natural minerals to hiperformance synthetics. ecoblast® is a modern abrasive, cost effective and surface profile specific. See the comparison below.
Relative quantities of abrasive required to clean the same area to the same cleanliness standard.
ecoblast® has a significant effect on both an increase in surface paint adhesion and an decrease in paint consumption.
Below is a diagram comparing the surface area profile and paint volumes for a fine grade commercial mineral slag at 100 microns to ecoblast® at 50 microns.
