Ceramic media is recommended for general purpose polishing, light and heavy deburring, fast and extra fast deburring and ultra aggressive metal removal. Ceramic media is best for heavy cutting and hard metals. When a small media is required (under 3/4"), ceramics offer the best selection. Ceramic media supports very heavy parts better than plastic media.
High Density Ceramic Media is a heavy, durable and long-lasting media ideal for use when reduced cycle times and low-residue processes are required. Deburring and polishing formulations are available in a wide variety of media shapes and sizes.
Recommended for general metal removal, pre-painted or pre-plated finishing, polishing, fast and heavy cutting. Plastic media is used for soft metals (brass and aluminum) or stringy materials to avoid rolling the burr over into a hole. It will produce a very smooth finish but very little shine.
Recommended for general metal removal, pre-painted or pre-plated finishing, fast and heavy cutting. Synthetic media is especially good for high-energy machines such as centrifugal barrels and disc finishers, since synthetic media is resistant to chipping and breaking under high pressure.
Used for polishing and burnishing. Its substantial weight (three times the density of ceramic media) exerts pressure to effectively reduce finishing time. Produces a bright shine. Removes no metal from parts. Imparts compressive stress, improves pre-plate finish and reduces porosity on plated parts. Non-consumable.
Used for polishing and burnishing. Recommended for aggressive processes. Its substantial weight (heavier than carbon steel) exerts added pressure and increased resistance to effectively reduce finishing time. Imparts compressive stress, improves pre-plate finish and reduces porosity on plated parts. Eliminates or reduces the need for compounds and rust inhibitors. Eliminates iron contamination.
