How much abrasive should I use in my cabinet? Most Skat Blast Cabinets include 50 lbs of Skat Magic Abrasive so you can start using it right away. Although the cabinet hopper is large enough to hold more abrasive, it works best with the amount included (hopper will be about 1/3 full).
NOTE - Abrasives are sold on a nonreturnable basis. No warranty is made as to satisfactory performance for any particular purpose. We suggest experimenting with each to determine which works best for individual applications.
A fine grade for use in Skat Blast or any cabinet. Slower rust and paint removal than Glass Beads, but much smoother finish. Will NOT etch or scratch aluminum, glass, or chrome (masking still recommended). Popular for use on internal engine and transmission parts, as it won't embed itself in the surface of the material being blasted. Can also be used on wood with extra care. Made in USA.
Grit Size 35-60, tan color.
TECH TIP: When using a Skat Blast Cabinet, a variety of dry abrasives can be used. Generally, the higher the grit number, the finer the abrasive. The finer the abrasive, the smoother the finish. Coarse-grit abrasives cut fast, but the finish isn't as smooth as fine-grit abrasives. Always change abrasive on a regular basis.
Our Distributors stock a variety of long-wearing abrasives, each formulated to obtain a desired finish. Experiment with each to discover which works best for your application.
