RE: Slag Abrasives

Here in Idaho we recently witnessed a demonstration of  glass grinding
equipment.  One of the products was a very fine glass that can used as a blasting media.  The contact person for this equipment/technology is:

Rob Howard
Caldwell, Id - (208)459-2815
Middleton, Id - (208)585-6247

I hope that this information helps.

I have a question about blasting media that was posed to me today and I
welcome input on an answer...

Conventional blasting media for paint removal is sand, which can pose a
risk of silicosis workers.  A company is promoting a "slag abrasive" as a
safer, environmentally friendly alternative to sand.  Any P2TECHies heard
about this or have a comment?
