W Abrasives, Steel Shot is a spherical product of hypereutectoid steel in the fully heat treated condition. It has a uniform structure of finely tempered martensite which provides optimum resilience and resistance to fatigue.
This makes steel shot ideally suited for both cleaning and peening applications.
Cast steel angular grit is produced by crushing specially heat treated shot pellets. Its behavior characteristics in service are very much dependent upon the hardness selection of GP, GB, GL or GH grit.
