    ​Saftigrit Brown

    Guyson Brown Saftigrit is a premium quality brown alumina manufactured by reduction melting from high grade bauxite in an electric arc furnace using the block method. It is also referred to as Brown Bauxilite, Brown Fused Alumina and Brown Corundum.

    It is an extremely durable and tough alumina with low metallic iron content and is ideal for applications where fast cutting and consistent quality is required. Additionally, this is the most economic virgin alumina available.

    Available to Rolls Royce CSS12 quality standard.

    Applications

    Cleaning, Removing Corrosion and Other Surface Deposits, Roughening, Etching and Decorating.

    High quality, durable abrasive with low metallic iron content. With a fast cutting, tough, long lasting character and consistent quality, this abrasive is specified by leading aircraft and automotive component manufacturers.

    ​Saftigrit White

    Guyson White Saftigrit is a premium quality white alumina manufactured by melting a special grade of calcined alumina (aluminium oxide) in an electric arc furnace using the block method. It is also referred to as White Bauxilite, White Fused Alumina and White Corundum.

    It is an ultra pure, iron-free product, the hardest of all the different types of alumina and is ideal for applications that need a high cutting ability and when freedom from contamination is vital.

    Available to Rolls Royce CSS12 quality standard.

    Applications

    Cleaning, Removing Corrosion and Other Surface Deposits, Roughening, Etching and Decorating.

    High quality applications where no contamination can be tolerated. Ideal for blasting of materials such as stainless steel, titanium, lead crystal glassware and other materials where surface cleanliness is imperative.

    ​Saftigrit Pink

    Guyson Pink Saftigrit is a premium quality pink alumina manufactured by reduction melting from high grade bauxite in an electric arc furnace using the block method. The addition of a small percentage of Chromium Oxide gives this product its distinctive pink colouration. It is also referred to as Pink Bauxilite, Pink Fused Alumina and Pink Corundum.

    It is an extremely durable and tough alumina with low metallic iron content and is ideal for applications where no contamination can be tolerated. Pink Saftigrit combines the toughness of the brown product (due to the addition of a small percentage of Titanium Dioxide) with the sharpness of the white.

    Available to Rolls Royce CSS12 quality standard.

    Applications

    Cleaning, Removing Corrosion and other Surface Deposits, Roughening, Etching and Decorating.

    ​Saftigrain

    Guyson Saftigrain is an economy blast media consisting mainly of a blend of brown, white and pink alumina. This product is obtained by reclaiming ceramic bonded grinding wheels and other products used within the abrasives industry.

    It is a general purpose abrasive and can be specified for applications where a ferrous content (up to 1%) is acceptable.

    Applications

    General engineering and restoration/ renovation projects. Saftigrain is ideal for the removal of corrosion, paint, weld scale etc. and the preparation of surfaces prior to painting, bonding etc.

    ​Silicon carbide

    Guyson Silicon Carbide is a premium quality abrasive manufactured by combining silica sand with carbon in an electric resistance furnace. It is also referred to as Carborundum.

    It is chemically inert and is also harder than any of the alumina products, which makes it ideal for applications where rapid or aggressive surface treatment is required.

    Applications

    Cleaning and roughening of the hardest surfaces, including glass and stone.

    ​Sinterball

    Guyson Sinterball is a high quality aluminium oxide blast medium specifically developed to provide excellent cutting power and durability. It is often used as an alternative to Brown Saftigrit. Sinterball is manufactured by sintering various mineral compounds at high temperature to produce a hard, dense, spherical medium.

    Due to its method of manufacture, Sinterball wears surfaces away rather than relying on the jagged profile associated with normal alumina products. This provides low dust levels and a longer product life. As the particle size remains more consistent, Sinterball is manufactured in only a few selected mesh sizes.

    Applications

    Cleaning, removing corrosion and other surface deposits, roughening and etching. It is often favoured by stone masons when blasting through stencils to produce lettering on memorials.
