Ervin Stainless Shot & Grit

As the leading international producer of cast steel abrasives, Ervin Industries’ AMASTEEL trademark has become synonymous worldwide with product quality, reliability, and customer support. We believe that is why Ervin AMASTEEL outsells its nearest competitor, three to one.


AMACAST is suitable to replace many other abrasives when blasting non ferrous metals or surfaces when a high degree of corrosion resistance is needed.


Exceeding the life of aluminium oxide, glass beads, mineral abrasives, garnet or slag by nearly 1000 to 1, AMACAST can significantly reduce your raw material and disposal costs.

AMACAST is non-hazardous and contaminant free as received. Its use produces no free silica or associated respiratory and environmental hazards. Any metal dust created during use is insignificant, allowing for a virtually dust-free blasting environment.

Energy Transfer - Speed of Cleaning

Blast cleaning is an operation in which the work surface is pounded by successive impacts of flying abrasive particles. This impact energy of the abrasive is related to the mass and velocity of the particle being thrown. When the kinetic energy in a particle of abrasive is expended on the work surface, the contaminant is loosened and removed. Thus, the greater the impact being delivered per particle, the greater the speed of cleaning. AMACAST’s greater mass / density delivers more power to the surface improving the cleaning rates and lowering the abrasive consumption costs.

Abrasive Work-Mix

An efficient abrasive work-mix contains a balanced distribution of large, medium and small particles. This distribution is constantly undergoing change because of abrasive deterioration caused by repeated impact with the work surface. Maintaining a proper balance can be difficult with short-lived abrasive because of its rapid breakdown and removal from the system. These fluctuations in the size distribution directly affect both surface finish and productivity.

AMACAST’s superior durability provides a more consistent size distribution in the operating “work-mix” by remaining in the new condition long after other abrasives have fractured and downsized from blasting.
