Steel Shots

Available in various standard sizes
High Durability

Our export quality steel shots enable preparing a single or multiple components surface by roughening it up undergoing the process of abrasive blasting. It helps in increasing the bond strength of the components surface Application of coatings like primers and enamels or for metallisation, painting, powder coating, rubber bondage and more.


These are used in applications for components like Casting, forgings, fabricated components, ferrous and non-ferrous components, etc. Blast cleaning with steel abrasive media is an important operation at various stages of metal production. There are different varieties and sizes of the steel shot which yields extraordinary results on the metal surface. A larger steel shot vigorously cleans a rougher surface. They produce the least dust because their process is not harsh. Steel shots are used to clean heavy parts of metals such as engine turbine blades, crankshafts and heavy-duty spring, etc. Low carbon steel shot has a low hardness in comparison to high carbon steel shot. Because of its microstructure, it resists impact, while the moment it suddenly scatters/dissipates and turns into fine powdered dust. It is even used for flash descaling. Mostly steel abrasives are manufactured from high-carbon steel composition, the best compromise between mechanical and chemical properties, efficiency and durability. The most vital properties of steel abrasives endure hardness, size and shape, toughness and cleanliness. Steel shots for shot peening: Shot Peening is the repeated striking or injecting of a metal surface by hard shot particles. These impacts produce deformation or change in the metal surface but also improve the durability or life of the metal surface. The media used in this process is spherical rather than triangular.

Salient Features-

     Steel shots are spherical grains made of molten steel through an atomisation (granulation) process.

     These cast steel shots are available in different sizes & hardness.

      A smooth, blemish free high glow surface is essential to achieve a glass like finish. these are manufactured using silicon carbide abrasive combined with a very unique stearate coating. This significantly improves performance and finish by reducing friction and giving a gliding sanding action which results in a very consistent scratch free surface.
