Exportation of Walnut Shells

McKinley Resources Inc. is proud to distribute environmentally natural and sustainable walnut shells for a wide variety of applications. We export walnut shells to clients in South America, the Middle East, South Korea, and Canada, in grades that include 20/40 and 35/60. Our ground walnut shells are fully natural products that promote social responsibility and environmental integrity. Ground walnut shells are a truly versatile media; they are used as plugs, exfoliates for the cosmetic industry, and as an abrasive in polishing, deburring, engine cleaning, and scale modeling, among many other applications. We offer walnut shells in a wide variety of packages: from bags up to 50 lbs. and fiber drums up to 300 lbs., all the way to baffled reinforced super sacks up to 2200 lbs. for large scale needs. All of our walnut shells are visually inspected and put through a number of tests for quality. Some of these include particle size, sieve analysis, appearance, color, pH, specific gravity, and solubility testing. And our company is proud to focus on providing our customers with excellent service. Samples are available, and we offer short lead times that typically range from 1 to 4 weeks.
