CHILLED IRON

Chilled Iron Grit is produced by the melting of cast iron with the subsequent atomization and crushing of the grains. Due to the extreme hardness, the grain breaks into sharp-edged particles during the blasting process. This gives the operating mixture its permanently high cleaning and roughening properties.

Product code: OM-CI
