U.S. Minerals Fight Corrosion with Industry-Leading Abrasives In the fight against the adverse effects of corrosion, you deserve a trusted partner. U.S. Minerals is proud to produce Black Diamond abrasive products, industry-lead- ing blasting media that hits harder and cleans faster. Black Diamond can blast nearly any surface to the target profile and finish. Black Diamond offers the largest variety of grades and materials, so even a unique application can pair perfectly with one of our blasting media grades. More than supplying a product you can rely on, our tradition is to deliver outstanding customer care and industry-leading quality. To ensure performance, we conduct rigorous tests on our products to guarantee every delivery maintains the con- sistent, high performance our customers expect and deserve. All raw materials and finished products are tested on a regular basis. During processing, product tests are conducted to verify that granules are produced to specifica- tion, and every truck and rail car is sampled during the load- ing process and tested prior to shipment. Along with performance, we are committed to the cus- tomer experience. We're known to work odd hours, or even work around-the-clock, so that no need goes unserved.

Black Diamond Abrasives Chosen for USS Turner Joy Restoration The USS Turner Joy is a Vietnam War-era destroyer ship. Commissioned in 1959 and retired in 1982, the ship now operates as a naval museum. When it was due for its 15-year maintenance, the crew ordered Black Diamond Iron Silicate abrasives to remove 25 tons of sea growth, as well as the 15-year epoxy paint covering the bottom half of the ship, in only 10 days.
