Using chilled iron grit for shot blasting is the perfect way to remove contamination from a metal surface as it can be used to remove paint, to remove sand from castings, and to provide a sound key for painting. It can also be used to remove scale and treat a surface after heat treatment.The shot blasting services available at Electroless Nickel Plating Specialist are carried out on site according to our policy statements, industry standards and best practices in the field.
Chilled iron grit is used for shot blasting because its angular abrasive particles make it ideal for removing paint and oxides from ferrous castings and carbon steels. This cleaning process is fairly aggressive, making it only suitable for harder metals.
