Ceramic Shots  - Blasting / Shot Peening Media >

Type: CB


Ceramic Shots for Blast Cleaning & Microblast


  • Reduced beads consumption (30 - 40 times) against glass blasting media

  • Lower metal surface roughness

  • Less operating pressure and reduced abrasive velocity needed than glass blasting media,  Thus have far less abrasive breakdown and dust generation, results in cleaner working environment and better operator visibility

  • White color, high sphericity and smooth surface beads

  • Strong mechanical resistance and high toughness, but gentle with equipment and tools preserving work parts

  • Chemically inert, no metallic contamination for treated parts

  • Low dust production


CB Beads can be used in these applications, just name a few:

  • Cleaning and surface preparation (deburring, etching, paint removal, cosmetic finishing and other microblast …) of moulds, castings and delicate items

  • Effectively used in air or wet pressure blasting process and in wheel turbine machines

Type: CZ

Ceramic Shots for Shot Peening


  • Highest Durability - Due to strong mechanical resistance and high toughness

  • Highest consistency from bead to bead in size distribution, sphericity, density and hardness

  • No Metallic Contamination and Lowest Dust Generation

  • Fine Shots efficient for multi peening steps

  • Lowest Machine Wear - Due to reduced shot throwing velocity needed to achieve the same peening intensities, and extremely smooth beads' surface

  • Improved Part Life - Offering high level residual compressive stress close to the surface


CZ Beads can be used in these applications, just name a few:

  • Shot peening to extend fatigue life by stress relieving, peen-forming and peen-straightening

  • Intensive use in wheel turbine machines and on High Strength Steel (HSS) at the same intensity range as steel shots

Industry Standards

  • AMS2431/7B

  • SAE J1830
