Our Garnet For Future Generations

We believe in a sustainable approach to business, and this is reflected in the way we manage our natural resources.

Over the past 15 years, GMA has pioneered the research and development of garnet recycling and has invested substantially in building advanced garnet reprocessing facilities around the world. Our garnet recycling provides customers with a cost effective and environmentally responsible option for disposing of used garnet. Recycling also increases the useful life of this non-renewable natural resource.

Due to garnet’s superior toughness and low friability, GMA Garnet™ abrasive can be recycled up to five times without compromising its reliable high quality performance. At our garnet reprocessing facilities, spent garnet sourced from blasting and waterjet cutting activities is first cleaned to remove all contaminants including dust, rust, paint flakes, metallic particles and other impurities. This is followed by precise sizing into various grades to suit end user requirements. Strict sampling and quality control procedures ensure that sizing and purity are maintained to our own industry best standards.

As our customers become increasingly focused on economic and environmentally responsible disposal solutions to manage their spent garnet, GMA stands ready with complete life cycle solutions.
