Carbon Steel Shot


Carbon Steel Shot is a general-purpose abrasive used to remove mill scale and molding sand. Its high bulk density, low friability, consistent sizing, and low dust levels provide superior production rates.

Common Uses:

  • Wheel blast equipment
  • Cleaning castings and forgings
  • Closed-circuit blast systems
