ELME AS guarantees the operative delivery of OK-abrasive grit from the warehouses located in Lithuania (Klaipeda), Estonia (Tallinn), but also from the producer’s warehouses.
The warehouse has constant stock of the product with the following sizes of blade: OK-85 (up to 100 t) and OK-100 (up to 300 t).

Package
ОK-abrasive grit have been packed to the durable polypropylen bags (big-bag) with handles with the capacity of 1 t (standard) or 1.5 t (special order). All such bags have been made with polyethylen additive which gives additional protection to the abrasive in transporting and storing.

Technology
The smaller OK-abrasive grit (OK-55, OK-70) guarantee very high speed of cleaning and enable to get the finer surface profile. Due to this property this is suitable for use on new steel surfaces covered only with mill scale or light rust.

Very dirty and corroded surface (several paint layers, thick rust and sedimentary layer) is very complicated to be cleaned with fine-blade abrasive. In this case the cleaning works take a lot of time and too much abrasive is used. Therefore the large-blade abrasive (ОК-100, ОК-85) is recommended to be used in these cases.

Besides iron and steel, the different forms of corrosion also have an impact on other materials. Therefore pressure cleaning is carried out with the help of OK-abrasive grit not only on metal, but also concrete and stone surfaces (monuments, facades of the buildings etc.).
