Chilled Iron Abrasive

Key Features

Chilled Iron Shotblasting Abrasive is a dense, hard, angular abrasive ideal for blasting of steel fabrications, in blast rooms where it can be collected and reused.


What is Chilled Iron Abrasive?

Chilled Iron Abrasive is a high performance metallic cast iron granular abrasive produced by crushing iron shot to various sizes.  It is generally used in blastrooms, or cabinets where it can be recycled efficiently.

Chilled Iron Grit has the physical properties of being sharp, angular, hard and brittle. On impact with the substrate the particles break down to form fresh sharp edges. This contributes to Chilled Iron Grit having rapid cleaning and etching properties. Chilled iron blast media is especially suited for air blast applications requiring an aggressive cutting rate, and angular profile.

We stock Chilled Iron Abrasive in 25kg bags with discounted rates available for pallets of 1 Tonne.
