Steel Shot Blast Cleaning Media, Fine #480-105
Steel Shot Blast Cleaning Media, Fine

Detailed Product Description:

Steel shot blasting is the most widely used process for cleaning, stripping

and improving a metal surface. The grade or size of steel shot will determine

the ultimate finish achieved on the surface of the metal. 


The round ball shape of the steel shot produces a clean, smooth and polished

surface through a peening action (“Shot Peening”) created by the acceleration

of the shot.  In a peening application, steel shot is used to impart compressive

strength to torque or load bearing metal parts such as crankshafts, gas turbine blades

and heavy-duty springs.

Smaller steel shot will result in a smoother and more polished surface.  Larger

shot will clean more aggressively but produce a rougher surface.  Both air-powered

and wheel blast systems can be used to accelerate the steel shot onto the surface

of the part. 


Due to the hardness and density of steel shot, it can be recycled as

much as 3000 times before replacement.  Since steel shot does not use an abrasive

process, a minimal amount of dust is created in the blasting process.


Application Notes:

This “fine” sized shot is ideal for blasting of relatively small ferrous and non-ferrous

castings and for removal of light scale from heat-treated parts, blast finishing of

machined parts, and for removal of mill scale, rust and other deposits.
