Metabrasive Steel Shot is a spherical product of hypereutectoid steel in the fully heat-treated condition. It has a uniform structure of finely tempered martensite which provides optimum resilience and resistance to fatigue.
Steel shot is ’round’ as supplied and remains so throughout its working life. It is the optimum abrasive for many wheel blast applications, its durability and resistance to impact fatigue give high cleaning efficiency and economy.
Steel Shot is also suited to shot peening applications where the shot is supplied in either standard or special hardness.
- Hard – cleans rapidly and efficiently
- Resilient – has exceptional service life
- Multiple Impacts – shot multiplies its efficiency by the ricochet effect. This increases the potential of the shot to reach areas which are inaccessible by direct blasting
- Round – formed during manufacture and remains round throughout its service life, providing; a well balanced operating mix and minimising wear in the machine.
