Metalltechnik is producing low carbon steel shot FERROSAD since more than 40 years. It has several advantages against the standard high carbon steel shot. FERROSAD steel shot does not need any further heat treatment after atomizing. The chemical composition and the atomizing process ensure that FERROSAD steel shot is free from quench cracks, shrinkage cavities and slag inclusions. The high manganese content guarantees a high wear resistant product of the correct hardness with a long service life.
