Ervin product amagrit page

Ideal For

Applications

  • Welded stainless steel structures (engineering)
  • Granite, natural stone and precast concrete parts
  • Aluminium profiles prior to coating
  • Stainless steel forgings

Key Benefits

Some of the key benefits you can expect when using AMAGRIT are:

  • Lowest consumption
  • Highest productivity, lowest cost
  • Significant savings vs. mineral abrasive
  • Reduced dust and waste disposal
  • Rust-free and clean surfaces
  • Local technical support

The Ervin technology for stainless steel abrasives is the most advanced in the world. Our production in Sprockhövel, Germany, combined with the knowledge of our technology centre in Tecumseh, USA, makes AMAGRIT one of the highest quality martensitic stainless grits.

Continuous quality control, in combination with the cutting-edge production process, guarantees consistently high performance.

After-Sales Support

Stainless steel abrasive is not a commodity. It is an essential component in a process that can be very costly if not maintained and supported on a regular basis.

Our trained technical support personnel are therefore at your disposal, at no additional cost. We can arrange to visit relevant plants as required on a regular basis to provide:

  • Advice on abrasive selection
  • A review of machine settings to ensure reduced wear and optimum abrasive consumption
  • Assessment of abrasive performance and work-mix configuration
  • Assessment of cleanliness and, if required, surface roughness on work-pieces
  • Advice on potential cost savings and productivity increases

What is grit blasting?

A form of abrasive blasting, grit – or sand – blasting is used to treat the surface of a range of 7materials by blasting them with particles to help remove any impurities. This helps ensure that the material is fully fit for purpose. This is particularly useful for non-ferrous substances where contamination is a real and consistent concern.
Grit blasting can be applied to a wide range of materials, making it a reliable, multi-purpose process for many sectors. The process can be applied to materials such as metals, natural stones, plastics and much more. This makes it a highly versatile tool that can be deployed in many projects through a wide range of air blasting systems.
In addition to this versatility, the Amagrit system is ideal for materials and surfaces that do not contain iron. In this situation, the abrasive is primarily deployed through compressed air blasting. This ensures a high degree of control over the end product while also remaining safe, efficient, and highly cost-effective – something that can prove difficult to ensure for a stainless steel abrasive system.

The fine nature of the material means that an experienced operator has a high degree of control over the finish of the end-product. This allows them to extensively reshape your material or work with delicate products that require a careful, fine finish.

What is grit blasting used for?

Grit blasting is most commonly used for non-ferrous materials and surfaces to help smooth out impurities in materials where contamination can be a problem. If deployed correctly and through the right delivery system, the material produces an effect similar to that of sandpaper, but on an industrial scale. This can help ensure conformity and prepare the surfaces of materials for other processes such as the deployment of powder coatings, additional protective layers, or using compressed air delivery systems to peen them for industrial use.
This makes grit blasting applicable to a range of sectors from engineering welded steel structures to aluminium profiles, and everything in between. For example, our Amagrit [link to https://www.ervin.eu/products/amagrit/] product replaces the need for aluminium oxide or other mineral abrasives in the preparation process and helps prepare a surface for coating, finishing, and many other uses. This works in a similar way to our Amachrome [link to Amachrome page] product and other high-quality mineral abrasives in the current marketplace.
This makes abrasive grit blasting perfect for dealing with stainless steel structures, natural stones, or handling aluminium and non-ferrous profiles for pre-coating.
What are the benefits of grit blasting?

Depending on the degree of abrasion that you need, the grade of the blasting material can be adjusted. This allows you to use a compressed air blasting system to remove significant physical impurities in a wide range of products and even deploy it to help with cutting actions. This can also help support other bespoke tasks in your production line or precision roles where ferrous contamination can prove to be a key risk.

The process can also be deployed at an industrial scale with automatic wheel blast machines or through hand-held devices – allowing a high degree of control with how you want to undertake your work. However, given the nature of the work, many professionals prefer to use the material with compressed air blasting systems – with different grades of Amagrit available to ensure coverage, care, and to minimise wear on your system.

This makes it highly flexible, and with our commitment to reduced dust creation and ferrous contamination – which can be a high-risk issue with fine blasting – this is fully safe to deploy and severely reduces the need for follow up cleaning when deployed.
