Carbon Steel Cut Wire Shot As-Cut


Carbon steel cut wire shot as-cut (with sharp edges) is a premium blasting abrasive with a useful life up to three times longer than cast steel shot and grit. It can also be precisely sized.

Why Carbon Steel Cut Wire Shot As-Cut?

Carbon cut wire shot has a significantly longer useful life than cast steel shot or grit (two to three times) and produces excellent results because of its uniformity and strength. The dust generation is also significantly lower than cast steel shot and grit.

Carbon steel shot as-cut is great for cleaning, surface preparation and improvement on ferrous metal parts. The longer useful life (compared to cast steel shot) of this premium blasting abrasive results in less waste from blasting.
