Blasting Media Stinson carries a wide variety of blasting media including sand, black shot, glass bead, aluminum oxide, and steel shot.

Jetmag sinters in a rotary kiln at 2300 degrees Fahrenheit to produce a synthetic olivine abrasive media, a compound of the magnesium family. The sintering process results in a jaggered glazed grain with a smooth surface, hence Jetmag does not shatter on impact, as will silica sand or slag grit media.

Jetmag special characteristics are the following:

  • Less Jetmag is required for a given job.
  • Jetmag increases productivity (by allowing a more rapid cleaning).
  • Jetmag generates less dust and is environmentally friendly (it's silica safe -- contains less than 1 percent free silica).
  • Jetmag is recyclable minimum 3 - 4 times with a recycling system.
  • Jetmag will reduce your dumping charge.

Black Shot # 40 and Black Shot # 20 are a blend of crushed nickel slag and coal slag. This combination makes for an excellent sandblast abrasive with superior cleaning and cutting capabilities.

Aluminum Oxide is a sharp, long-lasting, abrasive sandblasting cutting media. It can be re-used many times for grit blasting and it is harder than most common dry abrasive blast media, cutting even the hardest metals and surfaces.

Glass beads create a softer, brighter finish than angular abrasives. They offer a silica-free option for shot blasting, peening, honing, cleaning and light deburring.

Steel Shot is ideal for peening applications to have a clean, smooth and polished finish.
