Barton International has released its new line of economical, domestically-sourced Ecotek waterjet abrasives to the waterjet cutting market in North America.

Barton International has released its line of economical, domestically-sourced Ecotek waterjet abrasives to the waterjet cutting market in North America. The line was developed to meet growing demand in the waterjet cutting industry for lower-cost abrasives and includes two products for waterjet cutting: Barton 80 STL and Barton 80 MGS.

Barton 80 STL is made out of the naturally-occurring mineral staurolite, produced from a mining and milling process in Florida. Staurolite has a density and hardness similar to garnet and is suitable for virtually all waterjet applications. Barton 80 MGS, sourced in Oregon, is a synthetic olivine abrasive suited to less-demanding waterjet cutting applications.

Both abrasives meet the same standards for grading, health, safety and environmental compliance as the company’s garnet abrasives. They are engineered to meet the company’s safety and performance standards.
