A relatively soft nut shell abrasive for removal of undesirable coating without etching, scratching, or marring surfaces. The pellets are tough, possess high strength and resist break down, but are non-abrasive in character. Excellent reuse, low dust, and usable in all types of blasting equipment. Most widely used for blast cleaning when very close tolerances must be maintained.
