Stainless Steel Shot is one of the longest lasting most durable abrasives available. Produced from 300 Series Cast Stainless Steel, Stainless Steel Shots provide repeatable, consistent performance for thousands of cycles, a critical factor when used for shot peening purposes. Because of continuous impacting during use, Synconox™ shots work hardens itself, its internal structure changes from austenitic to martensite. This transformation enables SynconoxTM Shots to withstand up to 5000 impacts. As produced,Synconox™ Shots has a hardness of approx. 220 HV. With continuous use, the hardness will increase to approx. 530 HV after 2000 cycles.
Due to its exceptionally low break down rate, virtually no dust is produced from the abrasive itself. The non brittle nature and high density of Synconox™ Shots, results in high impact energies to the work piece resulting into faster cleaning rates.Synconox™ shots are used for applications where residue on the blasted component is undesirable and/or when a very bright surface finish is required. It will leave no ferrous residue or staining on the work piece. Synconox™ shots are widely used on magnesium, aluminum, nickel and chromium based alloy components and other non-ferrous parts.
