  Starblast (staurolite and blasting sand) is a very hard alumina bearing mineral which is an excellent abrasive to clean metals. This product is critical to construction and infrastructure improvement projects.  Its low-dusting and recyclable qualities make it a preferred choice for environmental or occupational health concerns.
