Steel Grit

Highly recyclable stainless steel blasting media.

Description

Steel grit’s superior hardness and precise¬†microstructure provides maximum durability¬†and impact energy transfer. Highly demanding, aggressive applications are ideal for steel grit. It offers a very fast stripping action for many types of surface contaminates from steels and other foundry metals. Softer than aluminum oxide, but still angular in shape, steel grit will not fracture as easily making it perfect for creating an etched surface on metal. Exceeds the life of common abrasive¬†materials by nearly 1,000 to 1 reducing raw material costs. Quickly strips contaminants from steel and foundry metals. Used in wheel blast and pressure operated blast systems.
