Surface technology today often requires sophisticated abrasion methods to maintain texture and cleanliness of the surface material.
Different finishing processes, e.g. shot blasting, de-flashing or smoothing, require abrasive media in different grain sizes and shapes. Also, hardness and stability play essential roles when choosing the most effective material.
At BioPowder.com, we provide innovative and fully natural blasting grit solutions for all those wishing to enhance their abrasive processes while reducing their ecological footprint.
Our mission consists in helping companies replace conventional blasting media such as plastic, garnet, silica/sand, glass with biodegradable options. Most industrial abrasion specialists have tried a number of grits and seek to optimize process technology and value-for-money.
Specialized finishing machines often require tailored grit solutions so as to ensure optimal workflows and to prevent blockage and damage. Moreover, no harmful residues and dust formation must occur to guarantee workplace safety and cleanliness at all times.
To cater to those needs, we have developed a new line of natural high-performance grits made from refined olive stones. These consumables are made entirely from by-products of the olive oil production. They are a product of the circular economy, fulfilling our zero-waste policy besides highest environmental standards.
BioPowder.com olive stone grits have a hardness in the range of +/- 3.5 (Mohs scale) and can be customized to any particle size range. Based on proven applications, our product line includes the following
recommended micron ranges:
BioPowder.com has committed to highest quality standards, which means that our grit solutions are odourless, light in color and dust-free. Our micronization technology allows for very low tolerances on the upper and lower edge of each micron range – for maximum reliability. Compared to other plant-derived grits (e.g. walnut shell or corn cob abrasives), olive pit media offer the following benefits:
If you are specialized in abrasion technology and wish to offer/use new consumables, we would like to hear from you.
We will support your industrial trials with small quantities and offer competitive packages for distribution.
