Alluvial Garnet Abrasives

BARTON International, a provider of garnet abrasives, has branded as ALLTEK its line of alluvial garnet abrasives for the waterjet cutting and surface preparation markets.

"ALLTEK waterjet and blasting abrasives provide increased performance, surface quality and value. The ALLTEK line includes the HPA brand and is made from top-quality alluvial garnet globally sourced and processed to BARTON's industry-leading standards," said a company spokesperson.

The ALLTEK brand of alluvial garnet abrasives is part of BARTON's comprehensive, three-tiered line of waterjet cutting and blasting media. ALLTEK joins BARTON's flagship ADIRONDACK garnet abrasives and the ECOTEK waterjet abrasives. Well-suited to a broad spectrum of applications, BARTON ADIRONDACK, ALLTEK and ECOTEK abrasives are designed to deliver consistent cutting performance and value.

"ALLTEK is a versatile alluvial garnet abrasive ideal for jobs that do not require the ultra-high performance of our exclusive ADIRONDACK garnet," said Barton International President R. Randolph Rapple. "This line of garnet abrasives combines excellent blasting and abrasive waterjet cutting performance with outstanding economy."

ALLTEK is available in two HPA grades for waterjet cutting:

  • 60 HPA - An aggressive garnet designed for use when cutting speed is of primary importance
  • 80 HPA - A versatile waterjet abrasive designed to provide good edge quality and solid cutting performance. May be used in virtually any precision waterjet operation.

ALLTEK is also available in two grades for blasting applications:

  • 30/60 PLUS - Used for new steel and maintenance work on coatings up to 20 mils. Typically produces a 2.5 mil - 3.5 mil profile on steel.
  • 80 HPA - For steel, aluminum and other sensitive substrates. Typically produces a 1.8 mil - 2.5 mil profile on steel.
