Stainless Steel Grit

Transmet’s Stainless Steel Grit is the #1 alternative to substances like Aluminum Oxide, Silicon Carbide, Copper Slag, and Garnet. You can deliver more energy to parts being cleaned, but in safer fashion.

Thanks to its enviable properties that include high hardness, angular shape, and high bulk density, Stainless Steel Grit helps deliver the most consistently smooth surface profile without harmful ferrous contamination.

Stainless Steel Grit vs Other Media

Transmet’s Stainless Steel Grit routinely outperforms other media in the areas of durability, resistance to fracture, and cleaning speed. Lifetime endurance is 30x greater than aluminum oxide, 50x greater than glass bead, and 60x greater than garnet!
