Garnet sand has susbstitued silica sand since quite several years, being free crystalline silica an environmental and homan hazardous and toxic element as a growing body of studies is showing. Garnet sand thus costitues a more than valid alternative for sandblasting thanks to its granules increased angularity, intrinsic crystalline structure and hardness. Propelled by high pressure water Garnet is frequently used to cut steel and other materials through the so-called waterjet applications, for whose a special and extremely hard grade is sorted and prepared do to obtain a highly optimized product for cutting. Last of all given its superior hardness and the higher specific weight, Garnet sand is often preferred to other traditional abrasives – as quarz, silica sand, olivine, staurolite etc…- in the realization of multi layer filters for water and liqquids treatment, granting an increased shelf life in application
