Media Blast Cleaning

Media Blast Cleaning

Stegman Tool’s Media Blasting Cleaning can solve multiple types of surface preparation and pretreatment requirements:

  • Produce Decorative Finishes
  • Functional Finishes
  • Remove Burrs and Sharp Edges
  • Remove Tool Marks and Imperfections
  • Remove Surface Rust
  • Edge Preparation
  • Coating Adhesion
  • Abrasive and Non-Abrasive

Media Types

Glass Bead – Material often used on surfaces such as stainless steel, brass, or bronze to remove weld slag, buildup, or brighten the existing surface before sealing. Glass bead is less abrasive than the traditional grit media and has light deburring. Provides a satin finish with glare removal properties.

Aluminum Oxide – Aluminum Oxide Grit is a sharp, long-lasting abrasive sandblasting cutting media. As an abrasive blasting media, it is harder than most common dry abrasive blast media and will cut even the hardest metals and surfaces

Steel Shot/Peen – Steel shot or shot peen is manufactured into a round ball shape that results in a smooth and polished surface. The peening action of the steel shot produces improved compressive strength to metal surfaces.

Walnut Shell – Used as an economical, biodegradable alternative for sensitive blasting operations that require aggressive stripping without effect on the surface of the base material.

Plastic Beads – Deliver quick stripping rates and consistent performance while remaining non-abrasive. This media is ideal for stripping coatings and paint from substrates, including aluminum and other delicate metals, composites and plastics. The relative softness of plastic abrasive media makes it ideal for automotive and aerospace blasting applications.

Our various hand cabinets can accommodate all small to mid-size parts with tumble and basket blasters for batch processing.
