Ceramic Shot

Abrasive

Ceramic shot is used in a wide variety of applications from peening to cosmetic finishing. Given the crystalline zirconia micro-structure, durability is increased above other spherical media types resulting in lower dust accumulation and longer media life cycles.

Ceramic shot is well suited to high-performance applications in wheel and dry/wet air blast equipment. Due to the nature of ceramic material - ceramic shot is inert and contains no material capable of surface contamination. Its long duty cycle makes it a good alternative to high consumption glass bead projects and extremely effective in peening applications.
