Harsco Metals & Minerals

MECHANICSBURG, PA (July 23, 2012) . . . Worldwide sustainable resource recovery services and environmental solutions company Harsco Metals & Minerals announced today a new abrasive product for the surface preparation industry, BLACK BEAUTY® GLASS. Harsco will provide the high quality crushed glass abrasive across the northeastern U.S., available from multiple locations.

Harsco’s abrasives are processed from recycled post-consumer glass that results in optimum quality and performance. BLACK BEAUTY® GLASS joins the original coal slag and iron silicate abrasive, sold under the highly regarded BLACK BEAUTY® and BLACK BEAUTY® IRON (formerly IRON HORSE) brands. The Original BLACK BEAUTY brand has been a mainstay of Harsco’s production for nearly 80 years and has positioned the company as a market leader in the surface preparation industry. “The industry demands more from us. We carefully selected an abrasive that fits into our product line. Our crushed glass abrasives meet federal leaching levels and provide the same high quality, performance and reliability that our BLACK BEAUTY coal abrasives have provided for many years,” said Dominic DeAngelo, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Harsco. “Exceeding our customers’ expectations is a priority for us and we believe with our quality control standards, superior customer service and company integrity, our abrasive products will continue to do just that.”
