Razor® Garnet Abrasives are mined and processed from natural hard rock garnet deposits; formed by the convergence of the Yangtze craton with the Sino-Korean craton.
The iron-alumina-rich mines from which Razor® Garnet are formed under high pressure in excess of 2.8 GPa and temperature exceeding over 890 ℃ is almandine type with visual dark red colour. The hard rock ore in Rizhao deposits are known for its natural hardness, durability and abrasive characteristics. The garnet deposits are all rock almandine variety of high mineral purity with a hardness of 7.5 and S.G 4.0. The raw garnet rocks are then crushed into sharp angled, chunky fragments ideally suited for aggressive blasting.
Razor® Garnet has over 300 million tons of garnet reserves in our 3 mines, the largest in the world. This large reserves assures a long term reliable supply to our all customers.
Razor® industrial almandine rock garnet mining, processing, and distribution plant is certified to ISO 9001:2008.
