ceramic abrasive blasting medium
Ceramic blast media is useful for finishing and peening applications where long bead life is important.
Guyson Zirblast and Zirshot are high quality fused ceramic beads manufactured from crystalline zirconia bonded with amorphous silica. Both products have a very slow breakdown rate and as such are ideal for impact finishing operations involving automated machinery, where consistency of finish is important. Additionally, dust levels generated are considerably lower than with the equivalent glass bead.
Whilst both products are chemically identical, quality checks to roundness, surface defects etc allows Zirshot to be certified to the demanding standards of aerospace shot peening applications. Zirblast is designed for all other impact finishing applications and is available at a more economic price.
Zirshot can be supplied with certification to most aerospace standards should these be required.
