                            VIBRATORY AND TUMBLING MEDIA
 
                                             STEEL MEDIA
   
 

 Steel Media is a non-consumable media. Its durability and increased working pressure make steel the ideal media for a variety of finishes. Steel media produces a burr-free, bright, smooth surface. Parts processed with steel media have longer cycle lives and greater resistance to wear as a result of compressive stress action – a beneficial byproduct of the finishing process

DURAMEDIA® Steel is made from low-carbon steel in AISI/SAE. The most commonly used chemistry is 1013, with steel media also manufactured in chemistries 1008 – 1022.

When complete freedom from rust is essential, we recommend corrosion-resistant Stainless Steel.

Uses for Stainless Steel Media:

• For Aggressive Processes…
dramatically cut finishing times by using more acidic compounds, specifically developed for use with stainless steel.

• Eliminating or Reducing Compounds…
with stainless steel’s inherent ability to resist corrosion.

To Reduce Maintenance, Storage and Handling Costs…
compared to carbon steel media.

• To Eliminate Contamination…
from chemical interactions (i.e., iron impregnation) that take place during some finishing processes. Especially important to manufacturers of medical equipment, surgical tools, food processing equipment and similar materials
