The Premier Garnet Abrasive for Waterjet Cutting

ADIRONDACK HPX has a unique crystalline structure that causes it to fracture into sharp-edged grains while in use. No matter how small they are crushed, the crystals never have a blunt or worn edge. It is this self-sharpening characteristic that makes BARTON’s Adirondack Mountains mine the best source of industrial garnet in the world.

Mined, milled and processed to meet BARTON’s high-quality specifications, our tight, consistent control of particle size distribution maximises the performance of your waterjet operation with ADIRONDACK HPX.

ADIRONDACK HPX cuts faster, deeper and straighter than any other garnet.

Sharper Edges Cut Faster, Improve Productivity

Because of its sharp, more angular edges, HPX cuts faster than other garnet abrasives, empowering the operator to do more in less time.

Better Edge Quality Improves the Cut

HPX garnet abrasives produce a better edge quality and can be used in demanding applications where other waterjet abrasives fall short.

Less Dust Reduces Operator Risk

HPX garnet is the cleanest waterjet cutting media available.

Cleaner Operation Means Less Downtime

Superior hardness helps HPX produce less dust than any other waterjet abrasive. The result is a cleaner workspace and less downtime due to clogged jets or erratic abrasive feed.
