Shotblasting

Shotblasting

The term SHOTBLASTING normally describes a process of a mechanical surface treatment (cleaning, deburring, finishing) of metals and stone by means of wheel blast machines.

With this type of machines it is practically impossible to think to use inert grit, because the large production of dust of these absolutely fragile products would lead to excessive wear: for this reason, in all cases, the use of metal grit is used.

Where aluminum, stainless steel, light alloys and stone are to be treated, a stainless metal abrasive is required, in order to avoid polluting the materials to be shotblasted with the use of oxidizing products (i.e. carbon steel grits).
