Steel Grit abrasive is an effective abrasive for sand blasting, economical solution for metal and concrete surface preparation. Steel grits are angular particles used in a blasting process to remove coatings from steel surfaces, such as paint. It also provides a strong anchor profile for subsequent coatings and surface treatments providing improved adhesion bonding between the substrate and coating layers. Steel grits come in various sizes ranging from coarse to extra fine making them suitable for different applications. It is significantly more cost-effective than other abrasives such as aluminum oxide and glass beads due to its superior cutting capabilities and long-lasting performance. This abrasive can be recycled multiple times which helps improve the environment by reducing waste production while still achieving desired results.

Steel Grit abrasive is widely used for surface preparation, shot peening, and for removing rust, scale, paint, and other contaminants from metal surfaces. Steel Grit is suitable for both wet and dry applications as well as manual and machine sanding operations. Steel Grit will provide a consistent finish on the substrate surface with minimal smearing or dust residue. Grit’s long-lasting performance makes it an excellent choice for use in industrial applications where frequent cleaning or maintenance of equipment is required.
