Steel grit characterizes grains with a predominantly angular shape. These grains are obtained by crushing steel shot; therefore they exhibit sharp edges and broken sections. Harder than steel shot, it is also available in different sizes and hardnesses.
Steel Grits are used in cleaning applications for removal of loose material on metal surfaces. This type of cleaning is common in automotive industry (motor blocks, cylinder heads, etc.).
Surface preparation is as a series of operations including cleaning and physical modification of a surface. Steel shots and Grits are used in surface preparation process for cleaning metal surfaces which are covered with mill scale, dirt, rust, or paint coatings and for physically modifying the metal surface such as creating roughness for better application of paint and coating.
