Abstract : The patent describes a method for preparing a rust-inhibitive abrasive material for cleaning metal surfaces by abrasive blasting. An aliphatic acid, such as stearic acid, is mixed with the abrasive material, such as black slag particles, at room temperature. The mixture is heated to a temperature which melts the aliphatic acid and then cooled to room temperature, the mixture being continuously stirred while cooling. The process produces dry, granular abrasive particles which are coated with a film of fatty acid.
