ISO 11126-10:2017 specifies requirements for almandite garnet abrasives, as supplied for blast-cleaning. It specifies ranges of particle sizes and values for apparent density, Mohs hardness, moisture content, conductivity of aqueous extract and water-soluble chlorides.
The requirements specified in ISO 11126-10:2017 apply to abrasives supplied in the "new" condition only. They do not apply to abrasives either during or after use.
Test methods for non-metallic blast-cleaning abrasives are given in the various parts of ISO 11127.
NOTE Although ISO 11126-10:2017 has been developed specifically to meet requirements for preparation of steelwork, the properties specified are generally appropriate for use when preparing other material surfaces, or components, using blast- cleaning techniques. These techniques are described in ISO 8504‑2.
