TRANSMET’S ZINC AND ALUMINUM BLAST MEDIA

ZINC SHOT VS OTHER BLAST MEDIA

Transmet’s unique casting process results in high durability, long-lasting blast media proven to outlast alternatives. Cast Zinc Shot lasts 2x longer than stainless steel, 3x longer than zinc cut wire, 4x longer than steel shot, and 10,000x longer than glass bead and aluminum oxide.

ALUMINUM SHOT VS OTHER BLAST MEDIA

Transmet’s unique casting process results in high durability, long-lasting blast media proven to outlast alternatives. Cast Aluminum Shot lasts longer than stainless steel, almost 2x longer than zinc cut wire, almost 3x longer than steel shot, and 1,000x longer than glass bead and aluminum oxide.

APPLICATIONS FOR CAST ZINC SHOT

Transmet Cast Zinc Shot Blast Media is ideal for shot blasting (or abrasive
blasting) applications including surface finishing of castings, deburring, flash removal, corrosion removal, paint removal, coating removal, and more.

APPLICATIONS FOR CAST ALUMINUM SHOT

Transmet Cast Aluminum Shot Blast Media is ideal for shot blasting (or abrasive blasting) applications including surface finishing of castings, deburring, flash removal, corrosion removal, paint removal, coating removal, and more.

More applications: profiling for coating & lubrication adhesion, blast cleaning parts during remanufacture, refractory mold release removal from dies, and more.

Transmet Cast Zinc Shot significantly reduces damage and wear on high-wear
internal components like the impeller, control cage, wheel liners, blast wheel and blades. Cabinet wear as a whole is virtually eliminated.

Stainless Steel Shot and Grit

Stainless steel shot is used for cleaning, deburring, descaling and surface finishing for aluminum and non-ferrous alloy castings, molds and fabrications. Stainless steel shot offers cost performance savings over stainless steel cut wire shot, aluminum shot, zinc shot, glass beads and ceramic beads.

Cast stainless steel grit is used for surface preparation prior to coating, surface finishing, oxide layer removal, natural stone finishing and investment casting finishing. It is a very aggressive media with a hardness of approx. 62 HRC, and is a proven alternative to aluminum oxide, garnet and other mineral abrasives.

Carbon Steel Grit/Steel Shot is commonly used to remove scale, deburr metal profiles, and profile finishing metal surfaces. It is softer than aluminum oxide and doesn’t fracture as easily. It is also used in direct pressure applications where a heavy profile is needed.
