Aluminum Oxide is used in many applications including grinding and cut off wheels, refractories and ceramic shapes, coated abrasives, investment casting shells, laminates, coatings, blasting abrasives, lapping and polishing, and many, many more.
Alumina is used where fine surface finishes are required as it breaks down over time and gives excellent surfaces during lapping and polishing. Applications include bonded abrasives, refractories, lapping compounds, heat treament setting sands, micro blasting and wear resistant coatings. It is also relatively inexpensive.

Sandblasting wood to create art or signs typically requires a portable pressure blaster with a hose to a hand-held nozzle used to accurately direct the flow of high-pressure abrasive on the portions of the object to be removed. Portable sandblasting equipment generally consists of an air compressor, a reservoir for abrasive material, a propulsion system, and a hose terminating in a nozzle. Nozzles are available in a variety of shapes and sizes, depending on the requirements of the project.
Clean the surfaces prior to painting, metal surface treatment. Cleaning the surface free of dirt, grease, loose or flaking paint is essential for the primer and paint to properly adhere to the substrate.
