How Grit-o'cobs are Processed
Grit-o'cobs are the result of sophisticated corncob separation and manufacturing processes using The Andersons' uniquely designed machinery in a patented process. The corncob is separated into three components: pith, chaff and woody ring. Only the very tough woody ring, which has a Mohs hardness of 4.5, is used for Grit-o'cobs. This woody ring fraction is dried, ground, air-cleaned, then graded over screens of various mesh sizes which results in a wide variety of finished grades.

Particle Grades Available
Grit-o'cobs range from granules approximately 1/4" in size to a fine powder-like form. The product grade represents the screens' mesh size used in sizing. For example, 814 Grit-o'cobs are granules which pass through an 8 (per linear inch) mesh screen and are retained on a 14 mesh screen.

Grit-o'cobs® has excellent absorbent properties, allowing for the removal of oil, grease and dirt in one operation It produces a clean, dry finish on ferrous and non-ferrous metals, and is an excellent way to prepare metal for plating

There is almost no breakdown of the granules during tumbling and it leaves an exceptionally bright finish. It is virtually dust-free and biodegradable, and parts cleaned with Grit-o'cobs® are also free of residue.

Soft-Grit Blast-Cleaning
Grit-o'cobs is also a top quality blasting medium because of its mild abrasiveness, absorbency and resistance to attrition Cell structure of the granules protects the integrity of particles so that dust generation during blasting is very minor. It also traps the substance to be removed thereby helping the cleaning process.

Grit-o'cobs can be safely used to blast-clean motors, generators, heavy equipment, boat hulls, insulators, transformers, and buildings.

Blast Cleaning Summary of Benefits
  • Eliminates masking since it's not harmful to surfaces
  • Eliminates solvents and pollution concerns in disposal
  • It's non-sparking, non-toxic, and virtually dust free
