Minerals Research, Inc. (MRI) is an authorized blender of  BLASTOX® a "patented, granular, calcium-silicate based abrasive blasting additive used to stabilize lead in various industrial paints."

This product was created by THE TDJ GROUP, Inc​. (An Environmental Solutions Provider) to deal with the problems associated with the removal of lead-based paint from steel structures.

1/3

 

 

When BLASTOX®  is correctly blended with an iron silicate abrasive such as SHARPSHOT®​,  the lead from the steel structure is encapsulated in the blended abrasive and rendered non-toxic. It can then be disposed of in "subtitle D landfill at significant savings."

Customers interested in this process should review the relevant documents in MRI's LIBRARY and on the BLASTOX website "Lead Paint Abatement" page.
