Aluminum Oxide (Brown Fused) Sandblasting Abrasive, Coarser Grades 12 through 240, 50 lbs or More

Brown fused aluminum oxide is created by melting high quality bauxite in an electric arc furnace.  Due to its high toughness, it is recommended for use in bonded abrasives such as grinding wheels and cutoff wheels, coated abrasives (paper & cloth), sandblasting abrasives, as well as refractory applications.  It also makes a great antiskid additive.

Use this page to order Coarse Grades of our Brown Fused Aluminum Oxide Sandblasting Abrasives.  Minimum order is 50lbs.  See bottom of page for Quantity Discounts.
  If you are looking for fine grades, please go to this page.

Shipping:  Small orders under 200 lbs ship via UPS Ground.  See details below for larger orders.

Recommended For:

  • Sandblasting
  • Grinding
  • Anti Skid Flooring (Coarse grits like a 24)
  • Surface Preparation
  • Etching, Carving, Gouging: (Coarse grits like a 36)
  • Coated Abrasives
  • Monument Blasting

Sizing - These Are Approximations Only.  Approximations are based on using a pressure blaster on hot rolled steel, having tightly adhering mill scale, using a 90-100 psi.  Anchor patterns will vary tremendously based on other variables such as hardness & type of steel, level of corrosion being removed, blast angle, blast distance from the steel, etc.

  • 1 mil pofile = 100 grit aluminum oxide
  • 1.5 mil profile = 50 grit aluminum oxide
  • 2 mil profile = 36 grit aluminum oxide
  • 2.5 mil profile = 24 grit aluminum oxide
  • 3 mil profile = 16 grit aluminum oxide
  • 4 mil profile = 12 - 16 grit aluminum oxide

Shipping & Packaging Information:
