Description

Steel shot is a wrought carbon steel blast media whose performance is low in friability. Excellent for stripping, cleaning and improving metal surfaces. Steel shot is manufactured into a round ball shape that results in a smooth and polished surface. The peening action of the steel shot produces improved compressive strength to metal surfaces. Used by both air powered and wheel blast systems.
