ZINC SHOT  
     
 
 
     
 
Zinc Shot is a soft metallic abrasive, used primarily in the die-casting and gravity casting industries for deburring and de-flashing of aluminum and zinc alloy casting. Zinc Shot is an ideal abrasive for blasting corrosion resistant steels and non-ferrous products, when the risk of ferrous contamination to the surface cannot be tolerated.
 

Zinc Shot is manufactured from virtually pure zinc. This enables it to be used in applications where there is a high risk of explosion if an aluminum shot were to be used. This is typically applicable when de-flashing aluminum components with aluminum shot. The high volume of dust generated can lead to an explosive atmosphere. The use of Zinc Shot can greatly reduce the risk of explosion.
