Steel Shot

THOMAS ABRASIVES Steel Shot is a fully heat treated spherical product of hyper-eutectoid steel.  It has a uniform structure of finely tempered martensite to provide optimum resilience and resistance to fatigue.  This is the most appropriate abrasive for the majority of wheel blast applications.   Its durability and resistance to impact fatigue provide maximum cleaning efficiency at the most economical cost.

Hard - cleans rapidly and efficiently.
Resilient - exceptional service life.
Multiple Impacts - shot efficiency
 multiplied by the ricochet effect.
Round - provides a well balanced
 operating mix with the minimum 
wear in the machine.
