SatinBlast™ will work harden itself, its internal structure chang - ing from austenitic to martensite. This transformation enables SatinBlast™ to withstand up to 5000 impacts.As produced, SatinBlast™ has a hardness of approximat - ely 200 HV. With continuous use the hardness will increase to approximately 530 HV after 2000 cycles. Due to its exceptiona - lly low break down rate, virtually no dust is produced from the abrasive itself.
The high density of SatinBlast™, along with it not shattering on impact, also delivers very high impact energies to the work piece, resulting in faster cleaning rates.
SatinBlast™ is used for applications where residue on the blasted component is undesirable and/or when a very bright surface finish is required. T he abrasive will leave no ferrous residue or staining on the work piece. SatinBlast™ is widely used on magnesium, aluminium, nickel and chromium based alloy components and other non-ferrous parts.
