The shot is said to offer shorter blasting and peening times, brighter appearance, and a rust-free surface. Additionally, the manufacturer states that it doesn't wear out blast cleaning equipment.
The media is also available as Chronital 13, which is a stainless steel shot that contains 3% more nickel than the Chronital product, allowing it to remain non-magnetic even after mechanical stress. In addition, Chronital 13 can be applied in blast cleaning equipment if it is equipped with a magnetic separator.
Both media are available through distributorships worldwide. For more information, contact the company's headquarters.
