Zinc Shot

Zinc Shot is a soft cast abrasive manufactured from pure zinc. Zinc Shot is used for deburring, cleaning, descaling and finishing.

Zinc Shot is a soft cast abrasive manufactured from pure zinc. Zinc Shot is used for deburring, cleaning, descaling and finishing. Its primary use is for processing die castings manufactured from zinc, aluminium, magnesium and other soft alloys.

Zinc Shot will not cause damage to the surface of soft alloy castings and will not cause excessive wear and tear on blasting equipment. Due to the low explosion sensitivity of Zinc Shot, it is a safer abrasive for processing aluminium parts.

of cleaning times and abrasive consumption due to high specific gravity when compared to aluminium shot. Removal of burrs 40% of shot size.

Zinc shot provides temporary corrosion protection to castings parts blasted with it. A very thin layer, up to 1.3Ám thick is deposited onto the surface of the part.
