DURAMEDIA® Steel is a mass finishing media available in carbon steel and stainless steel. This durable mass finishing material consistently results in a burr-free, bright, and smooth finish. Parts processed with steel media have longer life cycles and stronger resistance to wear than parts finished with other vibratory finishing media. DURAMEDIA® Steel is used in applications such as; stress relieving, strengthening, brightening and preplate. The shapes available for this product are: spheres, cones, ball cones, oval balls, and diagonals.
DURAMEDIA® Carbon Steel
DURAMEDIA® Carbon Steel is made from low-carbon steel in AISI/SAE.
DURAMEDIA® Carbon Steel 1013 is excellent for slight deburring, stress relieving, and strengthening.
DURAMEDIA® Stainless Steel 300 Series
DURAMEDIA® Stainless Steel 300 Series is the most common chemistry of stainless steel media, and is recommended when complete freedom from rust is essential. It can cut finishing times by using more acidic compounds in aggressive processes and has the ability to resist corrosion and can eliminate or reduce compounds. It can eliminate contamination from chemical interactions (i.e., iron impregnation) that takes place during some finishing processes. Maintenance, storage and handling costs of stainless steel are much lower than carbon steel.
DURAMEDIA® Stainless Steel 304ss is ideal for removing small burrs, stress relieving, polishing, and brightening.
