Production / Usage
Compared to silica, Black Shot nickel slag offers better uniformity, density, hardness, and contains less than 0.1% free silica. For best productivity, minimum 100 psi at the nozzle is recommended.
Black shot is a new low free silica nickel slag abrasive. Black Shot nickel slag is a by-product left over from the operation of nickel smelters and is unsurpassed in it’s toughness, and durability. It’s angular shape and consistent sizing makes it particularly effective in attacking rust and paint leaving behind an excellent finish for coatings to adhere to, and done in less time than conventional sands.
Black Shot nickel slag is competitively priced in comparison to coal and copper slag abrasive materials. Customers will enjoy additional price advantages due to Canadian-dollar-denominated production costs.
Technical / Safety
• MDOT (Michigan Department of Transport) approved
• CARB (California Air Resources Board) approved
• Less than 0.1% free silica
• Modern screening technology provides even more consistent material.
• Now available with Blastox® lead abatement blast additive.
Benefits of Using Black Shot nickel slag
faster cutting action
low draw of moisture
can be used in existing equipment
non-reactive with coatings
less time needed on the job = savings on labour
better visibility = better productivity, maximized blast pattern
faster falling dust = smaller fall-out area
smaller cleanup area is needed = lower set-up and clean-up costs
better flowing through media valves = lower chance of equipment clogging causing work slowdown or stoppage
no extra cost incurred to you and no down time
less chance of coatings failure
