  • Produced from SS301/ SS304/ SS430 wire manufactured to rigid specifications.
  • The wire is cut to the same length as its diameter, producing a solid, durable piece of shot.
  • Available in different sizes with diameters ranging from .012 to .041 inches (0.3 to 1.0 mm) and three different levels of Hardness (Rockwell C), 50 - 55, 55 - 60, 60 - 65.
  • Also available in three standard shapes: as cut, DCCW (double conditioned), or SCCW (spherical conditioned). All of these qualities are available in carbon as well as in stainless steel, and manufactured according to all of the usual standards used worldwide. Some of the specifications are:
    • SAE - J 441
    • SAE - AMS 2431/3. AMS 2431/8, AMS 2431/4
    • MIL S - 851
    • BOEING BAC - 5730
    • GE D 50 TF 11
    • JIS - G - 3506


Can be used as a blast cleaning media to remove various forms of surface contamination from a broad spectrum of steel or foundry products

Also used in in peening to increase the fatigue life of metal parts, such as jet engine turbine blades, automotive springs, or heavy equipment crankshafts.This is accomplished by pelting the surface of a metal part with round metallic shot thrown at relatively high velocity. Each shot acts as a tiny peen hammer, imparting to the surface small concave indentations or dimples in the surface of the metal.

Typical Applications include:

  • Aluminium Engines
  • Alloy Wheels
  • Surface Preparation
  • Brass pipe fittings
  • Stainless plate profiling
  • Stainless utensils
  • Operating instruments/
  • Aerospace
  • Paving Stones

Features and Benefits

Stainless Steel Cut Wire is a must for cleaning or peening operations where ferrous contamination cannot be tolerated.

  • Produces very bright surfaces
  • Longer life than cast abrasives
  • No hollow, splits or twins
  • Maintains size and shape longer than cast abrasives
  • Produces dust-free surfaces
  • Available "as cut" or "conditioned"
