Stainless Steel Grit

Where is it used?

Stainless steel grit ; Due to the many advantages it provides, it is the most important sandblasting abrasive used in cleaning, developing and improving the surface profile, in all aluminum parts, zamaks produced by pressure casting, non-ferrous metals, special alloys and stainless steel parts production and castings. It is also successfully applied in surface roughening processes before coating.
