DURAMEDIA® 40 is used for all metals where fast stock removal is required. It can also be used for radiusing, deburring, and surface improvement.
DURAMEDIA® 50 / SC
DURAMEDIA® 50/SC is a finely graded silicon carbide based ceramic media that is relatively good wearing and mild cutting. (85 lbs. /cubic foot, color: beige with blue/black grain)
DURAMEDIA® 50/SC is especially suited for materials to be welded, brazed, or soldered where exposure to brown fused aluminum oxide cannot be tolerated.
DURAMEDIA® 120 is a high-density abrasive-free media. (120 lbs./cubic foot, color: brown)
DURAMEDIA® 120 will produce a light radius on all metals and is excellent with chemically accelerated processes.
DURAMEDIA® 120C is the abrasive version of our high-density 120 formula. (120-125 lbs. /cubic foot, color: dark brown)
DURAMEDIA® 120C is a long- wearing formula with excellent metal cut. It is typically used on tough aerospace alloys such as titanium.
DURAMEDIA®140 is the preformed version of our DURALUM®XM product, which is extruded to shapes and sizes that address applications which seek to minimize lodging. (140 lbs./cubic foot, color: dark brown)
DURAMEDIA®140 is long wearing and provides light radiusing on all metals. It can be used as a burnisher and with chemically accelerated deburring products.
DURAMEDIA® C is a coarse grain aluminum oxide, graded to ANSI B74.12 standards, ceramic media providing an excellent cut to wear ratio. Its metal cut to media wear ratio makes it a very efficient media, suitable for a wide variety of applications. (90 lbs. /cubic foot, color: blue)
DURAMEDIA® C is a general purpose media that leaves a bright finish for all ferrous and non-ferrous metals.
DURAMEDIA® ECH is an aluminum oxide based ceramic media product that is used for general-purposes to produce a smooth surface finish due to the characteristics of the aluminum oxide abrasive. (90 lbs. /cubic foot, color: brown)
DURAMEDIA® ECH is intended for medium cut applications and provides high performance cutting action for deburring and metal removal.
DURAMEDIA® FB is an extremely hard and long-wearing ceramic media that contains no abrasive. (85 lbs./cubic foot, color: off white)
DURAMEDIA® FB is primarily used for burnishing on all ferrous and non-ferrous metals. It is recommended for brightening, burnishing, and polishing.
DURAMEDIA® H is an aluminum oxide based higher density ceramic media that is a tough, fast-cutting and efficient media. (110 lbs. /cubic foot, color: tan)
DURAMEDIA® H is an aggressive media known for quick metal removal and best applied where short cycle times are required. It is typically used in various vibratory applications.
DURAMEDIA® WK is an aluminum oxide based ceramic media that offers efficient and fast-cutting capabilities. It can be used in all types of mass finishing equipment and has excellent wear characteristics, especially when used in high energy machines. (100 lbs. /cubic foot, color: tan)
DURAMEDIA® WK is for use on all metals where fast metal removal is required.
DURAMEDIA® XC is an aluminum oxide based ceramic media containing a greater concentration of coarser grade aluminum oxide and is known for its fast cutting capability. (90 lbs. /cubic foot, color: olive green)
DURAMEDIA® XC is excellent for removal of heavy burrs, flash, or scale. It has good cutting ability for heat treated steels, teflon products, and nickel-bronze castings. A primary consideration for this formula would be applications for gear finishing.
