GLASS IS ENDLESSLY RECYCLABLE
As a country we consume in excess of 3.1 million tons of glass per annum.
Glass can be recycled into new bottles again and again without any loss to quality.
Glass is for life, because bottles do not biodegrade in a landfill.
WE PRODUCE 4 GRADES OF GLASS SAND
Our Glass Sand is ideal for:
Removing paint and corrosion from steel work.
3.5 – 8 mm
0.5 – 1 mm
1 – 3.5 mm
< 0.5 mm
Particles are angular to sub angular in geometry.
Particles have a light colour.
Glass contains no significant chlorides or salts.
A 100% recycled, “green” product.
Ability to cut/clean many different types of materials efficiently.
Produces a high quality surface profile suitable for many industrial painting applications.
Decreases the rate of corrosion on cleaned surfaces.
Produced from recycled glass – diverting a valuable resource from landfill.
RECYCLED CRUSHED GLASS IN CONCRETE SLABS
Our Glass Sand is used as a coarse or fine aggregate, or as a partial cement substitute in a wide range of concrete-based products such as:
Table counter tops.
Floor and wall tiles.
Decorative cement pots.
Garden furniture, etc.
RECYCLED CRUSHED GLASS IN SANDBLASTING
Glass Sand abrasive is created by crushing, cleaning and grading recycled glass to produce a high quality blast media.
Glass Sand can be used as a wet or a dry blast abrasive to prepare or clean a surface while causing minimal damage to the underlying substrate.
RECYCLED CRUSHED GLASS IN SPORTS TURF
The sports turf industry is a major consumer of sand, and uses it in a wide range of applications. It is also an industry that is being challenged to find ways of reducing the environmental impact of its activities.
Glass Sand is proving to be a popular and effective way to demonstrate the industry’s environmental commitment.
Glass Sand can be used as a dressing blending perfectly with finished product.
Glass Sand has a more consistent feel and is less prone to ‘plugging’ or ‘slumping‘.
The predominantly green colour of Glass Sand is a distinct advantage particularly for divot repairs.
