Stainless Steel Grit is a manufactured abrasive used to remove thick coatings, heavy rust, and mill scale. Its angular shape cleans by aggressively cutting away at the surface, leaving a uniform surface profile. Stainless Steel Grit’s high bulk density, low friability, consistent sizing, and low dust levels provide superior production rates. Stainless Steel Grit is most commonly used in abrasive blasting rooms and is frequently used for cleaning castings and forgings.
Blasting with Stainless Steel Grit will not promote ferric contamination or rust on your surface. This makes Stainless Steel Grit an ideal abrasive choice in applications where ferrous contamination is a concern.
Stainless Steel Grit’s high bulk density and high hardness results in more energy being transferred to the work surface than mineral or slag abrasives, easily removing mill scale and molding sand.
The low friability of Stainless Steel Grit allows it to be recycled hundreds of times. Unlike mineral or slag abrasives, Stainless Steel Grit will not completely shatter when it hits a surface, keeping its relative size. Recycling Stainless Steel Grit increases profitability by reducing abrasive consumption, and shipping, clean-up, and disposal costs.
