blasting with corncob particles is accomplished
with the same equipment as used for sand blasting.
Because corncob grit is considerably less
aggressive than sand, it is often categorized
as a "soft abrasive" (corncob grit
has a 4.5 Mohs hardness). Corncob grit does
not etch glass or foul bearings and is frequently
used to clean electric motors and machinery
with hydraulic cylinders. Other applications
include: smoke damage and residue clean-up;
mold cleaning; plant maintenance; and loose
and flaking paint removal. It is ideal for
wood, aluminum and fiberglass substrates.
Unlike mass finishing processes, blasting with corncob grit is not as
predictable. Each job tends to have unique characteristics which do not allow
for estimating precise media usage or outcomes. We recommend testing a couple of
grades to determine which offers the best performance. We will box and ship
50-pound bags anywhere in the USA for $30.0 per bag. Small samples are
available at no charge.
