Glass Smoothing Abrasives - Garnet

The unique crystalline structure of the natural Garnet mined, crushed, results in an abrasive that produces highest quality surface finish without scratching to gouging. The crystal growth can be carefully controlled, so that the individual platelets have regular well defined edges and surfaces.

The aspect ratio of the platelets, together with the sharp crystal edges, give special properties which are advantageous in the surfacing of ophthalmic glass lenses. It is recommended in slurry densities of 1215% and is most effective when the PH of the slurry is near neutral (PH7).
