Description of Ferric Oxide-Crystalline
A purified, naturally occurring mineral called specular hematite (Fe2O3). It is a blocky, heavy iron-based crystal and the most stable form of ferric oxide in a fully crystalline state. The product will not rust or oxidize as its crystalline composition makes it a stable form of the ferric oxide (Fe2O3).
(Fe2O3) Military Specifications Met:
Meets Mil-A-21380B Type I for aluminum oxide, and Mil-A-22262B(SH) for hull abrasives.
Crystalline (Fe2O3) Recyclable:
Recycles 3-6 times using conventional air-wash systems. Additional grit (approx.25%) must be added to the system to supplement degradation loss after each recycles.
