DIRK has established itself as a major force in the grit-blasting industry using reclaimed power plant slag as a high grade, multipurpose, expendable abrasive. By marketing a chemically inert product, which does not damage our environment, DIRK Blastgrit has replaced siliceous materials; its chemical constituents contain no free silicas and it is free of all toxic and cancer-inducing agents, thus setting the highest standards in Europe and the U.K. DIRK Blastgrit conforms to the U.K. Health and Safety Act, the Blasting (Casting and other Articles) special Regulations, Statutory Instrument No. 2225-1949, the C. 0. S. H. H. 1658, which prohibit use of certain substances hazardous to health in operations. DIRK Blastgrit meets the BIS standard and the German DIN-standard for expendable abrasives.
DIRK Blastgrit® the 'Universal' Multipurpose abrasive
DIRK Blastgrit® is a fused, and thus, inert material, which does not contain metal substances. In layman's terms, the product has a glass-like character. This chemical composition allows DIRK Blastgrit® to be used on a variety of surfaces such as:
This variety of applications adds to the economic advantages of using DIRK® Blastgrit
- Stainless steel
- All types of other metals
- Concrete and brickwork
- Plastics & textiles
DIRK Blastgrit® -the economical grit-blasting material
The chemical composition of DIRK Blastgrit® provides the basis for economical effectiveness:
a) The bulk density of 1.4 gm/cm3 provides the optimum density for higher productivity. When compared with a comparable tonnage of higher density metal-slags, DIRK Blastgrit® is able to achieve a significant increase in surface area coverage (results obtained from independently supervised tests).
b) All-purpose DIRK Blastgrit® covers all blastcleaning operations, thereby reducing stockholdings of different abrasives and ensuring that the correct abrasive is used.
c) DIRK Blastgrit® can be used for a variety of surfaces, consequently any surplus can be used on your next application
whatever the surface.
