What characterizes our cut wire shot

Market-Leading Performance

Cut wire shot pellets are produced by cutting a steel wire into lengths equal to the diameter of the wire. For shot peening operations, the cut wire pellets are rounded (or conditioned) to eliminate sharp edges that could damage the shot peened parts. 

Available in 2 grades, our High Durability cut wire is a specially heat-treated blasting media that will help you save money with its extended life and quality manufacturing, while ensuring the best performance from your blasting process. 

Our cut wire products are characterized by 4 main properties: 

Size From 0.3 to 2.5 mm 

Conditioning level from G1, G2 and G3 

Hardness from 300 to 800 Hv 

Metallurgy: available in Carbon steel, Alloyed steel, Stainless Steel, Aluminum….
