Impact blast cleaning removes surface contamination, burrs, and feathered edges, from a broad spectrum of parts. Choosing the right blast media depends on the desired finish and application.
Aluminum oxide is a sharp long lasting abrasive used for finishing and cleaning. It has a fast-cutting action which minimizes damage to thin materials. It is durable and can be recycled many times.
Aluminum oxide is a high-quality abrasive that does not dull quickly. It leaves a smooth flat, coarse-textured finish and is longer lasting and considerably more aggressive than Glass Beads.
- Cleaning Engine Heads
- Turbine Blades
Generally, the larger the grit size, the faster aluminum oxide will cut.

||Glass Beads smoothly blends away surface defects. A finer, smoother non-glare finish is achieved with smaller spheres, while larger spheres produce a more textured finish.
- Special effects are easily achieved through simple masking before the blasting process.
- Finish is reproducible, time after time.
- Improves lubrication
- Improves adhesion capabilities
Steel Shot/Steel Grit
Steel shot and steel grit are reclaimable Medias used mainly in blast cabinets.
Steel Shot is ideal for peening applications to impart a clean, smooth and polished finish.
Steel Grit is an angular carbon steel designed for quick and effective removal of surface contaminants from metals.
Steel Shot or Steel Grit Applications include:
- Shot Blasting
- Shot Peening
