GREENHILL SELLS THE FINEST GARNET. GMA garnet is a natural, chemically inert, iron alumino-silicate mineral.
The combination of it's specific set of physical properties make it an excellent natural abrasive.
Garnet is a fast cutting, low consumption, low dusting, recyclable mineral abrasive. Garnet, in many cases, can be recycled 3-5 times which helps cut many project costs down such as abrasive collection, clean-up and disposal.
Since garnet has low dust characteristics and is a relatively hard abrasive (7.5 Mohs), rate of removal on tough surfaces is increased and cleaning efficiency greatly improves when garnet is used. Garnet is also used as an excellent cutting medium in waterjet cutting applications.

Garnet sold by GREENHILL is used at shipyards in the U.S. for blasting coatings, tightly adherent mill scale, and rust. It also enables precise control of feathering when blasting weld seams and construction damage. Low dust levels improve working conditions and productivity in tanks, voids and confined spaces. Other proven shipyard applications include maintenance of US Navy Vertical Launch Systems (VLS), superstructures, fiberglass hulls, hangar decks, tank work and aluminum surfaces.
Industrial Painting Contracting
Facility maintenance, turnaround jobs, tank projects and blast room work are just a few of the applications where GREENHILL helps contractors increase productivity, reduce consumption and shorten the cleanup process
Applications include tanks, offshore platforms, pipe racks and pipeline projects.
Blast Rooms/Heavy Equipment Repair
Completely non-ferrous garnet grains are utilized in blast room applications where aluminum surfaces, sensitive substrates or installed electromagnetic components preclude the use of steel grit or shot. Typical heavy equipment applications involve the overhaul of construction and military vehicles.
Powder coaters value the high-quality surface finish and uniform profile created by garnet. High durability allows for several re-uses of the abrasives in blast room applications.
