Our products continue to find broad and growing applications in diverse markets
such as automotive, aerospace, agriculture, construction, foundry, mining, railroad,
shipyard, stone cutting, office machines, petrochemical, and other major industries.
Although AMASTEEL abrasives are used in the production of a wide array of products,
they have four primary applications.
As a blast cleaning medium, shot, grit or a mixture is used to remove
various forms of surface contamination from a broad spectrum of steel or foundry
In a peening application, AMASTEEL shot is used to impart compressive
strength to torque or load bearing metal parts, such as jet engine turbine blades,
automotive springs, or heavy equipment crankshafts.
As a cutting medium, hard AMASTEEL shot and grit is used in gang-saws
to process granite and marble blocks.
In addition, the sharp, angular form of grit makes it ideal for etching
a textured surface on metal - thus enhancing its ability to bond with paint, enamel,
rubber or other coatings.
