Glass Grit

Description
Grade
Data Sheets
Description

Recycled glass comes from crushed bottles. It is a cheaper abrasive but is perfect for one of jobs such as removal of paint or rust on bricks or metal. We would not recommend re-using recycled glass after use as it breaks down a lot on impact so wouldn't be very effective to recycle.

Recycled glass is green in colour and is a sharp angulated abrasive, we wouldn't recommend it on soft wood or stone as can imbed in the material and potentially leave a green stain or sparkle.
