Oxide Grit - used for creating an anti-slip surface on our Epoxy Seal Coat
and for re-gritting MOT Brake Rollers on top of our Thixotropic Epoxy Resin.
Also used for 'blinding' our Epoxy Seal Coat when used as a damp proof membrane
to provide a grip for tiling or flooring adhesives. Aluminium Oxide Grit
can also be used in grit blasting machines for cleaning metals - it removes
rust, corrosion and paint.
It is even used in Potato
Peeling Machines for resurfacing the drum of the so called 'rumbler'.
Over time the grit loses its sharpness and the potatoes take longer
and longer to 'peel'.
Grit by the Kilo - allow 2.5kgs per square metre for full cover.

of Grit available
- available in Grade 12, Coarse, 16, Medium, 24, Fine and Mixed Grade.
average grain diameters - Grade 12 = 1.7mm, Grade 16 = 1.2mm, Grade 24 = 0.8mm,
Mixed Grade = 1mm to 3mm.
12, 16 and 24 can be used for metal polishing and finishing and for
adding to coatings to provide anti-slip properties. They can also be used for
'blinding' our coatings to provide a grip for adhesives or screeds - use them
in conjunction with Epoxy Seal Coat and Technoseal.
Mixed Grade is used for the Commercial Vehicle Testing Rollers, where a rougher
surface is required.

Slip Applications for Aluminium Grit
in public or private areas. Improved wet grip and traction on slopes.
Paths and steps, which are prone to be slippery when wet.
Pedestrian and vehicle ramps, to provide increased grip in the wet.
Public areas where a gritty surface is useful to reduce falls.
Industrial flooring in process plants, especially where washing down is frequent.
which may become slimy in Winter.
Plates to increase wet weather traction for vehicles.
Rollers for MOT Test Stations.

Applications using Aluminium Grit
Grit for Cleaning/Blasting
Because of the wide variety
of different materials which may be removed in cleaning operations,
it is often best to experiment with different nozzle angles to find
which works more efficiently. Where there are internal recesses and
other difficult areas, the use of smaller bead sizes may be particularly
helpful. Since a high cleaning speed usually minimizes labour, bead
size and nozzle angle are key considerations. Normally, a velocity which
optimizes cleaning speed with a given size of bead will optimize the
consumption, to give lowest total cost.
