Key Corn Cob Media Properties and Characteristics
Corn cob media typically exhibits a blocky or angular shape and features a Mohs hardness in the range of 2.5 to 3.5. Perhaps the most unique corn cob polishing media property is its ability to absorb many times its own weight in moisture, making it an excellent choice for drying and degreasing applications.
In addition, corn cob offers strong resistance to attrition — despite its light weight and seemingly fragile composition, it provides remarkable durability and can withstand the rigors of heavy-duty finishing processes.
Corn Cob Media Applications
Corn cob is able to clean and polish delicate surfaces such as brick, stone, glass and wood, as well as aluminum, acrylics and precious metals such as gold and silver. It is also frequently used in the final stage of the tumbling process to enhance the appearance of the finished product, and in various parts drying processes.
