Ready-to-use operating mix for surface preparation in air-blasting

PROFILIUM® is very hard steel grit, developed specially for air blasting applications. As the grain size distribution of the new product is that of a ready-to-use operating mix, the frequency and quantity of abrasive additions will have little or no effect on the profile result: a constant surface profile is obtained. In terms of efficiency, PROFILIUM® has no rival on the market.
