Cutting through the competition to get to the next level

As the market evolves, Black Beauty®, an abrasive blasting industry leader, is on top of its game. With Harsco’s 2021 introduction of Sure/Cut™,  a high-performance and environmentally friendly abrasive, the industrial, marine and manufacturing industries now have a better media for surface preparation.
The Sure/Cut™ line features Sure/Cut Velocity™ and Sure/Cut Edge™. These products have been developed to the highest health and safety standards for the user. They are also certified by the Protective Coatings Inspector (SSPC) standards as AB-1.
How does the Sure/Cut™ line support the industry? 
Sure/Cut Velocity™ and Sure/Cut Edge™ provide the best in cleaning and consumption rate and cost per square foot, which enhance productivity levels by saving time, money and the environment. 
As such, the Sure/Cut™ line supports the marketplace by providing green blasting solutions, including removing rust, paint and surface contaminants from railcars, ships, bridges, pipelines, and water tanks. 
What’s the difference between products? 
Sure/Cut Edge™ is an enhanced nickel abrasive material offering cleaner substrate surfaces and usage cost savings. It also has low free silica, low dusting and no embedment. This line is ideal for marine operations, pipelines, bridge constructions, chemical plants, new steel, and railcar restoration. 
Alternatively, Sure/Cut Velocity™ is an enhanced, calcium-iron silicate abrasive media offering superior cutting capability and a lower consumption rate. This line delivers abrasive innovations for new steel, heavily rusted coatings, public utilities, dustless blasting, and vapor blasting.
