Properties of steel abrasives: steel shot, steel grit, etc 

Most steel abrasives are made of a high-carbon steel composition, the best compromise between mechanical properties, efficiency and durability. The most important properties for steel abrasives are hardness, grain size and shape, toughness and cleanliness .

Recyclability and environmental impact

The recyclability of steel shot and grit ranges between 2000 and 3000 cycles. Due to its high recyclability level, steel shot and grit tend to generate less waste when compared to other expendable abrasives.

Hardness

Steel shot or grit is usually available at different hardness levels, ranging between 40 and 65 on the Rockwell scale.
