The AMACAST ADVANTAGE

Whether the objective of your blast cleaning operation is descaling, deburring, removal of casting sand or creating a specific surface finish, AMACAST stainless steel shot can help you meet the challenge.

Recyclability

Exceeding the life of aluminum oxide, glass beads, mineral abrasive, garnet or slag by up to a thousand-to-one, AMACAST can significantly reduce your raw material and disposal costs.

Health/Environmental/Impact

AMACAST is non-hazardous and contaminant-free as received. Its use produces no free silica or its associated respiratory and environmental hazards. Any metal dust created during use is insignificant allowing for a virtually dust-free blasting environment.

Surface Finish

Whether you require a bright, metallic finish, free from staining and ferrous residue or a specific surface profile to prepare for coating, AMACAST is the answer.

Offered in 5 separate size ranges, AMACAST is designed to meet your specific production requirements.

Energy Transfer - Speed of Cleaning

Blast cleaning is an impact cleaning operation in which the work surface is pounded by successive impact of flying abrasive. The impact energy of the abrasive is related to the mass and velocity of the particle being thrown. When the kinetic energy in a particle of abrasive is expended on the work surface, contaminants are removed. Thus, the greater the impact energy being delivered per particle, the greater the speed of cleaning. AMACAST's greater mass/density per particle size delivers more cleaning energy to the work surface providing improved speed of cleaning while lowering your costs.

Abrasive Work-Mix

An efficient abrasive work-mix contains well-balanced distribution of large, medium and small pellets. This distribution is constantly undergoing change because of abrasive deterioration, caused by repeated impacts with the work surface. Maintaining a proper balance can be difficult with short-lived abrasive because of its rapid breakdown and removal from the system. These fluctuations in the size distribution directly affect both surface finish and productivity.

AMACAST's superior durability provides a more consistent distribution by remaining in the work-mix long after other abrasives have fractured and been removed.
