STEEL GRIT

Steel Grit (angular) is produced by crushing steel shot. Suitable for use in various applications as three grades of hardness are produced by different heat treatments. The GH hardness remains angular in the operating mixture (suitable for cleaning, roughening and surface finishing), the GL has the edges rounded off in the operating mixture (suitable for descaling and surface roughening prior to coating) and the GP grains become spherical (suitable for descaling work).

Product code: OM-SG
