Blast Media

Abrasive glass media provides a safe, efficient alternative to combustion slags and silica sand which can be harmful to the health of the workers and the environment.

PRI manufactures New Age Blast Media®. New Age Blast Media® offers a number of advantages:

Cleaner: New Age Blast Media® is manufactured from 100% Recycled Container Glass that directly reduces landfill waste and limits the use of more toxic slags. It is non-reactive and inert, and can be used near and around water.

Safer: New Age Blast Media’s® dust is classified by OSHA/NIOSH as “nuisance” dust. It contains less than 1% free silica (unlike most coal slags) and has virtually none of the OSHA identified Heavy/Toxic Metals associated with slags and some other mineral abrasives.

Silica sand blast media in its natural state has a crystalline structure that has the capacity of “sticking” to lung tissues. Our recycled glass blast media is amorphous with a closed structure that is non-absorbent and doesn’t stick to tissues. If a person is exposed to amorphous glass fines or dust, the body can expectorate the dust as it would any other type of natural dirt.

Faster: New Age Blast Media’s® crushed glass delivers a natural, whiter metal finish that many other sandblasting abrasives. And it offers significantly less embedment issues—up to 5 times less than slag blast media. Crushed glass blast media’s dust is translucent, which allows for increased visibility and operator production.

CLEANER NABM® is manufactured from 100% recycled container glass.
It directly helps reduce landfill waste and limits the use of more toxic slags. Non-reactive and inert, it can be used near and around water. At 90 PSI, NABM® requires less energy and allows for reduced cost on shipping, collection and disposal.
SAFER Dust is classified by OSHA/NIOSH as “nuisance“ dust. It contains less than 1% free silica and has virtually none of the OSHA identified heavy/toxic metals associated with slags and some other mineral abrasives. Authorized for use by the Strategic Petroleum Reserve.
FASTER NABM® delivers a natural whiter metal finish. Significantly less embedment issues, up to five times less than slags and many other expendable abrasives. Dust is translucent which can allow for increased visibility and operator production.
