Kuhmichel - Europe's leading blasting media distributor


It is a proven fact that using the correct abrasive media can be cost effective. Based on the experience Kuhmichel has gained over many years of dealing in the surface preparation industry, we feel confident to offer advice and guidance.

We will endeavour to find the most cost-effective media best suited to your operational environment. We achieve this by carrying out stringent testing within our own in-house laboratory facilities in which amongst others we perform sieve analysis, chemical analysis, determination of bulk densities and media service life tests.

Should further detailed analysis be required, for example a bespoke application, these tests can be carried out with the help of our sister companies. Alternatively, we can also outsource to other accredited laboratories.

Why not utilise our experience to optimise the efficiency of your surface preparation equipment?

If required, and in most cases as a gesture of goodwill, we will visit your site and discuss the operational efficiency of your equipment and systems.

Our experienced advisers can perform an on-site analysis of the blasting  media, and, wherever possible, carry out a detailed inspection of the equipment, thereby enabling us to make recommendations that would benefit your particular process.

Health and Safety.
It is of great importance that our products pose no health threat. Therefore, all our products are extensively tested prior to your purchase.

As a part of our operational process, we regularly send media samples to the German Institute for Occupational Health and Safety (IFA - formerly BGIA) to be tested for contamination by any toxic, silicosis-inducing (hazardous to respiratory system) or carcinogenic component particulates.

We will also provide you with our "Health and Safety data sheets". There is no doubt that if our products are used in conjunction with the given information you will not experienced any side effects by handling or working with the product.
