TRANSMET’S ZINC AND ALUMINUM ABRASIVES
ZINC SHOT VS OTHER ABRASIVES
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 ABRASIVES
Transmet’s unique casting process results in high durability, long-lasting abrasive proven to outlast common abrasives. Cast Aluminum Shot lasts longer than stainless steel, almost 2 times longer than zinc cut wire, almost 3 times longer than steel shot, and 1,000 times longer than glass bead and aluminum oxide abrasive.
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 Abrasives 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 Abrasives
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 abrasive 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.
