Crushed glass is an environmentally-friendly abrasive media that is manufactured from recycled glass. It offers several advantages in various applications, such as automotive and industrial uses. It contributes to the preservation of the environment by utilizing recycled materials, reducing waste, and promoting sustainability.
Crushed glass is known to enhance productivity due to its efficient abrasive properties. It effectively removes contaminants and surface imperfections, resulting in improved work efficiency and quality. The material is more resistant to rustback, providing longer-lasting protection for surfaces.
Crushed glass is free of heavy metals, ensuring a safer working environment. This makes it an ideal choice for automotive and industrial applications.
Ecoglass is a sand alternative abrasion made from recycled glass at Emterra Group's Niagara Recycle Centre. Glass is a safe choice for various applications, as it lacks crystalline silica and heavy metals. It is an economical alternative to sand silica, requiring over 25 percent less material and more than 20 percent less time than alternative abrasives available in the market.
End users say it has a prolonged resistance to rust, taking up to five times as long to flash back to rust. Also, sandblasting with glass generates significantly less dust. Best of all, recycled glass is an environmentally friendly choice. Contact the Niagara Recycling Facility to learn more about this safe, efficient, eco-friendly addition to your abrasion materials.
