The suitable blasting abrasive for each application
Blasting abrasives of premium quality in various grain sizes and siftings
Blasting abrasives, also known as media consist of metallic, mineral and organic materials. SIGG Strahltechnik offers blasting abrasives exclusively in premium quality. The company maintains stocks of common blasting abrasives with different characteristics, in various grain sizes and siftings, like blasting corundum, aluminium oxide, glass beads, blasting glass, nut shells, brass powder, nylon granulate, steel-chilled iron grit and ceramic beads.
High-level competence in the selection of blasting advices
The blasting technology specialist sells the media in quantities, whichever the customer desires – from 25 kilograms up to several tons. Customers include companies of all sizes, from craftsmen to large scale corporations. Each blasting abrasive has specific characteristics, which makes it particularly suitable for certain applications. Thus, for example, blasting corundum qualifies for de-scaling, de-rusting, roughening and polishing of steel, non-ferrous metals, glass, wood and plastic. Aluminum oxide, without ferrous constituents, is therefore preferential for the treatment of parts that should not be subject to rusting.
Glass beads for a pure surface
Glass beads feature a fine blasting abrasive for achieving highly polished, pure surfaces. They are preferably used for the cleaning of form-pieces, dies and other work-pieces whereby the surface may not be corroded. They are utilized for matting of medical technology instruments. As pre-treatment before chromium-plating and anodizing, glass beads also present the most suitable blasting abrasive. Glass blasting abrasives by SIGG Strahltechnik are silicone-free, for even smallest constituents prevent anodizing, chromium-plating and painting of blasted surfaces.
Angular glass for roughening stainless steels
Blasting abrasives in angular forms are used for cleaning, matting and roughening of stainless steels and non-ferrous metals. Nut shells present a granulate made from natural raw materials of sensitive characteristics, utilized for cleaning and de-burring of plastic molding parts as well as brass and aluminum machined components. These abrasives de-burr the components due to the contact velocity, without damaging the surfaces. Nylon granulate in cubic form ensures gentle de-burring and cleaning of components made of plastic. Steel-chilled iron grit is preferably suited for polishing, cleaning, matting, de-scaling and roughening. Ceramic beads are the right choice for the surface finishing of components made of stainless steel and aluminum. You are not sure which blasting abrasive is the right one for your surface desired?
