Stainless-Steel Shotblasting GritMay 16, 2017
Transmet Corp., Columbus, OH, has expanded its product line of shotblasting materials to include stainless-steel grit. The new grit is an effective alternative to aluminum oxide, glass bead and other mineral abrasives in air-blast and some wheel-blast applications.
The grit’s angular shape, high hardness and high bulk density delivers more energy to the part being blasted, so it results in more efficient cleaning and shorter blast cycles. Resulting surface profile is consistent, bright and without ferrous contamination.
Stainless-steel grit is proven to be more durable and resistant to fracture than other abrasive, according to Transmet officials, and this durability advantage is reflected in the overall cost of shotblasting.
