Carbon Cut Wire Conditioned


Carbon steel cut wire shot conditioned (rounded) is a premium peening abrasive that has a useful life up to three times longer than cast steel shot. It can also be precisely sized. Since conditioned carbon steel shot has a significantly longer useful life than cast steel shot or grit (two to three times), this reduces the amount of waste produced by blasting operations.

Why Carbon Steel Cut Wire Shot Conditioned?

Rounded carbon steel cut wire also produces excellent results because of its uniformity and strength. Its dust generation is significantly lower than cast steel shot and grit. Carbon steel cut wire is the preferred shot peening media over cast steel shot.
