Stainless Steel Grit

Transmet High Chromium Alloyed Non-Rusting Stainless Steel Grit

Transmet Corporation High Chromium Alloyed Non-Rusting Stainless Steel Grit is the alternative to Aluminum Oxide, Glass Bead, Silicon Carbide, Copper Slag, Garnet, and others.

Stainless Steel Grit utilizes its angular shape, high hardness, and high bulk density to deliver more energy to the parts being cleaned. Resulting surface profile is consistent, bright, and without ferrous contamination.
