Shot Blasting of Light Metal Castings

Transmet manufactures and supplies high durability, long-lasting abrasive media that does not damage parts or equipment. Light metal castings can be blasted with Cast Zinc Shot without delaminating, exposing porosity, or removing critical detail (part numbers, date codes, etc.).

Below is an example part before and after blasting with Transmet Cast Zinc Shot:

Metal casters blasting with Cast Zinc Shot see none of the ferrous contamination issues that cause flash rust and dull finishes.


Reduce Damage and Wear on Blast Equipment

Transmet Cast Shot significantly reduces damage and wear on internal machine components. See what this looks like from inside the machine, with a blast wheel that has clocked over 17000 hours of blasting with Transmet Cast Zinc Shot:
