PATRIOT BLAST ELITE
Patriot Blast Elite Copper Slag / Iron Silicate is an aggressive abrasive frequently used in new steel and steel maintenance applications. Copper Slag / Iron Silicate meets SSPC AB-1 and TCLP testing requirements. The higher bulk density and angular particle shape which characterizes Elite produces an aggressiveness that provides clean, fast-cutting action and consequently increased production rates. Elite is ideal for the blasting required for industrial projects including structures such as storage tanks, water towers, bridges, ships, structural & plate steel, offshore platforms, and oil field maintenance. It is the product of choice in the Gulf and southwestern regions of the US and has quickly gained popularity in the North- eastern regions as well.
