    Loygrain

    Guyson Loygrain is a biodegradable, natural product, made entirely from the woody portions of corn cob. As well as having blast cleaning properties, the cob is absorbent and will remove light oil or fluid on the surface being treated. As the product is quite soft, there is little chance of damage to component substrates. It can also be used for non-blasting applications such as the removal of soils from marine turbines etc.

    Applications

    • Removal of corrosion and carbon from automotive components and electrical equipment.
    • Deflashing and cleaning without dimensional change.
    • Cleaning marine turbines.
